Behind the scenes of'The King of New Orleans'

With moviemaking, the devil is in the details. Think meticulous, laborious and really long days. This weekend, the locally written and shot film "The King of New Orleans" went back for some retakes. It started with eggs (sunny side up) and ended with steak. It took place at Cafe Reconcile. It starred Emma as the stray dog.

Here's a look at the process, in a photo gallery by photographer Linda Friedman:
