Area's film industry moves into spotlight

By Robert C. Burns | October 11, 2008 | Muskegon Chronicle

Muskegon's prospects as a film capital continue to evolve, frame by frame.

On the heels of a set of state financial incentives for filmmakers, the creation of WaterMark Studios in downtown Muskegon and the filming this summer of "Offspring," a feature-length horror film directed by Andrew van den Houten, the area is starting to attract some starring-role attention.

Tony Wenson, chief operating officer of the Michigan Film Office, will be the guest of state Rep. Mary Valentine, D-Muskegon, for a special town hall meeting set for 7 p.m. Monday at Cinema Carousel, 4289 Grand Haven.
