Did you know that Detroit hosts some of the best state of the art film space? Taking the time to think of it, I was told recently by a fellow filmmaker that the metro-Detroit area sufferes from a lack of production houses and arenas for film projects. Not including warehouses and the space across from the Coke factory (used for Detroit 187), the recently opened Michigan Production Complex in Rochester, senior platforms like Grace and Wild Studios and the upcoming frosh, Raleigh Michigan Studios. NextWave Media in Troy is also rumbling about. Will supply and demand determine how many studio films we can get? The supply is there, the demand for tax incentives is here as well. Taking advantage of a Michigan soundstage could be prominent and help the permanent residence of a series of projects here in Michigan. Let's get the word out!
