Michigan film crews ready for rush

By JUSTIN KROLL - Variety Magazine - August 25, 2008

When Michigan, the state responsible for making the majority of cars on U.S. roads, can't find jobs for its autoworkers, you know film industry folk are having a tough time finding employment there as well.

That was certainly the case for Tim Magee, the business agent for IATSE Local 38, Detroit's Stage Employee Union (Michigan utilizes a union policy for film crews instead of a "right-to-work" one), who says times had been slow for the pic biz in Michigan as recently as this past winter.
