The search lights of Hollywood have cut through the economic gloom pervading Michigan recently, as state government and the creative community look to the potential of film incentives to build a new industry. Southeast Michigan, once a rival of Los Angeles in terms of advertising creative talent and industrial films, is poised to become a regional film capital.

In the first nine months of the state’s incentive program, 35 films were initiated and $125 million was spent in state, according to the Michigan Film Office. Gran Torino was the most notable feature film. The incentives have supported a variety of films including documentaries and short features, such as Raised Alone, by Sam Kadi. The program has resulted in jobs for skilled and unskilled workers and supported the launch of three film studios in Southeast Michigan. However, some wonder whether the political will exists to continue the incentive program long enough to breathe life into the creative community – particularly young talent – and generate a local film industry.

“I think it’s all good. The fact that we’re the leader in incentives got immediate attention in Hollywood,” notes Joseph LoDuca, a Bloomfield Hills music composer who has had considerable success landing film work. He’s currently working on “Legend of the Seeker,” a television series based on fantasy books. He works with his director,who is in Auckland, New Zealand, through Skype.
