Two New Films Publicly Supported in Michigan

 
Posted June 24th, 2014 @ 8:17am

Two new feature film projects have been approved for taxpayer-support film incentives, according to the Michigan Film Office.

"Paid in Full" -- a film about human trafficking -- began production in Novi earlier this month, and post production work will be done in Michigan.

Margaret O'Riley, director of the Michigan Film Office, says the Paid in Full project plans to spend "virtually its entire budget here in Michigan."   The project was awarded an incentive of just under 50-thousand dollars.

The film seeks to highlight and raise awareness about human trafficking around the globe and follows the story of an Indian American girl who is seeking to avenge the death of her sister.

The feature film Heartlock, which includes locations in Jackson and the Standish Correctional Facility, was approved for an incentive of just under 140-thousand dollars.
