By CHRIS GRAY | Observer Staff Writer | January 21, 2009

With the film industry becoming more and more interested in Michigan, it could be advantageous for aspiring residents to learn some tricks of the trade.

The Center for Continuing Education at Macomb Community College is offering film-based programs to area residents wanting to learn more about the industry, and perhaps earn a career behind the camera.

The Filmmaking Industry Training class will be offered in two formats. One will take place 9 a.m.- 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, Feb. 2 to 13, at the Macomb M-TEC, located at Van Dyke and Tank roads in Warren.

The second format will be held 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays, March 28 through April 26, at the M-TEC. Enrollment costs amount to $2,300.

All classes will be instructed by professionals in the film industry, said Fran Sturtz, director of continuing education at the college.
