Michigan Bill to Offer Incentives for Filmmakers
The great state of Michigan is considering offering tax breaks to filmmakers to entice them to film movies there, instead of elsewhere.
LANSING -- Janet Lockwood, head of Michigan's film promotion office, received a phone call this week from a movie production company in Vancouver requesting four dozen Michigan license plates.
The movie is set in Michigan and they needed Michigan plates on the cars to lend authenticity. Actually shooting the movie here would make it more authentic, but Lockwood said it's cheaper in Canada because of lucrative tax breaks and other financial incentives.
