Luring showbiz means understanding business

By Olivia Pulsinelli | Michigan Business Review | April 30, 2009

Michigan's year-old film incentives have sparked debate in the state -- but it's sparked activity, as well.

Last week, Compass Film Academy's alumni board presented its 10th annual 24 Hour Film Festival in Grand Rapids, and advisory board member Ralph Winter was one of three judges at the event. Winter, a producer at 20th Century Fox for the past 10 years, has produced more than 25 films, including the "X-Men" trilogy and the upcoming "X-Men Origins: Wolverine."

He spoke with Business Review reporter Olivia Pulsinelli about Hollywood's perspective of the film industry in Michigan.
