President Terry Terry was appointed to the Michigan Film Office Advisory Council (MFOAC). The three-year appointment by Governor Rick Snyder represents a significant responsibility for shaping the direction of Michigan’s film industry. The Council has an advisory role for the Film Office’s $50 million annual incentive fund for qualified Michigan film and digital media productions.
Terry was selected in large part for his 35 years of production experience, and his ability to bring different groups of people together, as shown in his leadership role in the urban revitalization of Old Town, Lansing.
“This is definitely a big challenge,” said Terry. “But it’s also really exciting. I’d like to make a difference in promoting the Michigan film industry.”
Since 1979 MFOAC has been attracting productions to the state and promoting growth of the state’s film industry. Projects eligible for their services include motion pictures, documentaries, television series, miniseries, interactive television, music videos, interactive games, video games, internet programming, sound recording, digital animation and interactive websites.
