While a legislative committee this week could vote to eliminate film tax incentives in Michigan, incentives for three film projects have been approved by the Michigan Film Office.
They are: “My Soul to Keep,” “Swish Master,” and “Golem.” All three will be produced by Exxodus Pictures Studio, based in Detroit.
My Soul to Keep will film in various locations, including Detroit, South Lyon, West Bloomfield, and Utica. The project was awarded an incentive of $210,483 on $601,380 of projected in-state expenditures and expects to hire 21 Michigan workers with a full-time equivalent of two jobs.
Swish Master, a film that deals with bullying, is expected to film in various locations in Metro Detroit. It was awarded an incentive of $272,134 on $777,525 of projected in-state expenditures and expects to hire 25 Michigan workers with a full-time equivalent of three jobs.
Set during WWII, Golem is expected to film in locations throughout the Upper Peninsula. Golem was awarded an incentive of $835,360 on $2,386,742 of projected in-state expenditures. The project expects to hire 53 Michigan workers with a full time equivalent of 15 jobs.
In the meantime, the House Tax Policy committee this week in Lansing, considers a measure to end the film tax incentive program in Michigan.
