Michigan Motion Picture Studios

August 8, 2012 in Industry News, Michigan News by ghost

The largest studio of its kind in the state, the now renamed Michigan Motion Picture Studios has split ways with Raleigh Studios and taken back its original name. Here is the Detroit Free Press article:

http://www.freep.com/article/20120808/BUSINESS06/308080025

It is my firm belief that Hollywood films alone are not sustainable in this state. We must promote Michigan based films from Michigan based filmmakers to create our own niche in film business. This studio is a sign of positive progression toward helping that endeavor.

Michigan can become a force for film.

 

Welcome 2012

Welcome to the new MichiganFilm.org.

Although this website has been around since 2007 it was badly falling out of date. Part of that due to software that was difficult and cumbersome to begin with and part of it due to my busy life the last several years.

Well I’m relaunching the site. This time built on an expanded version of wordpress, which I’m much more familiar with.

I’m pleased to have you here. This is a community. A mini social network for Michigan based filmmakers and outside filmmakers who are shooting pictures in this great state.

We’ve got a lot to catch up on. It has been a crazy few years with the state film incentives and then the restriction of film incentives which shut down a lot of potential productions.

All of that said, it’s important that we as Michigan filmmakers, actors and support push forward. There is still great and promising work to be done here.

We are on another set and excited to be working. Intent began filming yesterday. If was colder than a *@#%^&  &^%@#& at 6am, but we got the job done. It's exciting to be on another film and we are working on a few more that begin next year. The cast so far is great to work for. Same with the crew. They really bust it out there.

Regina, my on-set liasion was on the set most of yesterday to make sure our piece of the movie went well. If you are on Intent, make sure you introduce yourself to Regina. She is great.

Have we worked together? My last film was Wedding Day (television), before that All's Faire In Love and Hung for HBO. If you were on the set there, let me know. I'd love to chat with you.

Motown Motion Pictures Studio

February 5, 2009 in Industry News by ghost

Governor Jennifer Granholm announced in her state of the state speech on Tuesday night (February 3rd) that Pontiac Michigan will be getting it's first full fledged film studio. Motown Motion Pictures LLC. will be investing upwards of 70 million dollars into creating a 600,000 square foot movie studio out of the old General Motors plant. Including nine sound stages. This isboth a studio and a production company.

The project is being funded by local investors as well as Hollywood California based Raleigh Studios and Beverly Hills (California) based Endeavor Talent Agency. Also throwing money into the development is Michigan Economic Growth Authority. 

The studio is expected to create around 3,600 jobs and another 1,500 jobs indirectly related by the year 2020. Average weekly wage estimated to be around $824. 

This is something we should all pay close attention to. Larger productions coming into the state will also trickle down to smaller productions done by indiependent filmmakers. All of which will help the local and state economy which has fallen so far off track.

Casting Call: 2 actors & 1 editor needed in Grand Rapids

December 21, 2008 in Short Films by CoraGrace

My first short film, Snow Day, has entered pre-production. It is a comedy about a gamer’s day off during a snowstorm. I am seeking two male actors in their 20’s and an editor. I expect filming to begin in early February and post in late February or early March.

 

Compensation:

 

Actors – Unpaid, but you will receive a DVD of the film, a link on my website, and meals while filming. This is a great opportunity for students and amateurs.

 

Editor – A small negotiable fee, a DVD of the film, and a link on my website. I probably can’t afford a professional, so editing students and amateurs are encouraged to apply.

 

For most information about the project and to apply, please visit the following pages:
