West Michigan stepping into the movie-making spotlight

By Eric Gaertner | The Muskegon Chronicle | March 11, 2009

When Mitchell Nyberg returned to West Michigan in 2000 after spending 17 years working in the San Francisco film industry, he saw the area in a whole new light.

Nyberg, 49, of Hart Township, now sees the variety of locations and the area's unique qualities as providing a gold mine for movie settings.

Filmmakers are beginning to see those traits here, as well.

The area's ability to provide various backdrops for movies, coupled with the state's aggressive film incentives, is sparking a high level of interest in making movies in West Michigan.
