Film-industry professionals say state is well-positioned to draw projects

By Special Writer Anne Duffy | The Ann Arbor News | April 27, 2009

The film industry is exploding in Michigan, and Mike Kelly has helped light the fuse.

The Ann Arbor actor has the lead in two movies premiering locally this spring. He is in negotiations for two more films being shot in Michigan - one of them scheduled to begin filming in May in Ann Arbor.

With production companies like the $146 million Unity Studios coming to Allen Park and creating thousands of high-paying jobs for skilled workers, Kelly envisions Michigan's budding film industry contributing its fair share to lead this state out of its economic quagmire.
