Filmmaking studios expected to thrive in West Michigan

By Eric Gaertner | The Muskegon Chronicle | March 12, 2009

The growing film industry in West Michigan is taking advice from "The Field of Dreams" movie.

"If you build it, he will come." In this case, the "it" are movie studios and the "he" are million-dollar movies.

Area supporters of movie-making are touting plans for major film studio facilities in West Michigan as being among the key components to attracting more film productions. Two of those facilities, WaterMark Studios in Muskegon and 10 West Studios in Manistee, along with similar infrastructure projects in Grand Rapids and Holland, could become the backbone for the industry in West Michigan.
