GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM)-A newly-approved film will be shot in the Grand Rapids area.
The Michigan Film Office announced Wednesday that $105,644 in state film incentives have been approved for "A Matter of Faith." The film focuses on the topic of creation versus evolution through the story of a college student, her father and her professor. Crews are expected to shoot scenes from the movie at Cornerstone College and Aquinas College, as well as other Grand Rapids area locations. Filming should take place over the next month.
"A Matter of Faith" is expected to generate $376,765 in in-state spending. Its producers are expected to hire 29 Michigan workers with a full-time equivalent of two jobs.
The Michigan Economic Development Corporation also approved $123,209 in incentives for "Dogman 2: Wrath of the Litter," which will be produced by Brauer Productions in Traverse City. Filming will take place in Benzie County this fall.
