Hollywood is calling to Michigan

By Sue White | The Saginaw News | March 15, 2009

"I really have nothing to say about that film," Janet Lockwood said of "Terror at Baxter U," laughing at the memory of the roundly panned 2003 horror film.

"I was only in it because a friend wrote it, and the whole experience convinced me to go back to what I loved, acting on stage."

Fortunately for Michigan, though, it didn't sour Lockwood on what she's done best for the past 17 years, pitching the state to potential filmmakers. And since April 2008, when Michigan began offering tax incentives up to 42 percent to those shooting their films here, she hasn't had much time to do anything else.
