Now the film industry may not have such a negative view of The Wolverine State. Michigan has just passed legislation aimed at aggressively bringing film and television production with some of the most lucrative production incentives in the country to make Michigan one of the most financially attractive states in the nation to make movies.
The key bill in the legislative package gives film studios a refundable credit of up to 42 percent on production expenses in the state with a minimum local spend of only $50,000. Here is a list of some of the recently passed state production incentives for Michigan.
Michigan has a mostly union crewbase with several hundred crew members the majority of which are in metropolitan Detroit and the remaining in areas such as Grand Rapids, Traverse City and Lansing.
