Lights, camera, action for Michigan

By: Joe Borlik | CMU Life | January 12, 2009

Michigan's film industry is beginning to thrive. Fourteen major projects were shot in Michigan during the last year, compared to just two in 2007.

According to the Michigan Film Office, it is a new record, and a bright spot in a state facing troubled economic times.

Last April, the state approved a film production incentive that offers up to 42 percent in rebates on film money spent in the state - a tax incentive large enough to push the Great Lakes state to the forefront of studio executives' attention.
