Michigan may be officially becoming a movie-making machine. Filming started on yet another project and the company producing the film is cashing in on Michigan's film incentives. The Michigan film office says the incentives provide a tax credit of up to 40%. Companies hiring local residents may also receive extra benefits. It's lights, camera, action, in Oceola Township. The rural, Livingston County town sets the scene of the upcoming family-friendly film, Horse Crazy.
Matthew Ward, Executive Producer: "We found great resources out here."
Matthew Ward oversees the film financing. He caught wind of Michigan's film incentives, which offers tax rebates that few other states offer.
