Crew Perspective
As a seasoned lighting technician, my years of experience have seen me light up sets from Detroit to Traverse City. However, it's difficult for projects to compete with other states. I've had to leave Michigan to find work. It's an agonizing decision - leaving my home, my family, and my community just to pursue my passion. But with the passage of the Multimedia Jobs Act, Michigan crew members like me can return to the Mitten State, reignite our careers, and invigorate the local economy with our specialized talents. Please support the Multimedia Jobs Act.

Small Business Perspective
Our family-run cafe in Grand Rapids has served as an unofficial gathering spot for film crews and actors over the years. The laughter, camaraderie, and tales of on-set adventures brought a unique charm to our place. But, as production dwindled, so did our business. The Multimedia Jobs Act can bring those golden days back, not just for our cafe but for countless Michigan businesses whose livelihoods are intertwined with the fortunes of the multimedia industry. Please support the Multimedia Jobs Act.

Resident Perspective
Growing up in Detroit, I remember the buzz in our neighborhood when a film crew rolled in. Seeing our city on the big screen, portrayed in its myriad hues, was a matter of pride. These productions weren't just creating jobs, they were telling our stories. With the Multimedia Jobs Act, we can bring those storytellers back to Michigan and reclaim our narrative. Please support the Multimedia Jobs Act.

Parent Perspective
My daughter will graduate from Central Michigan University in the next year with a degree in tv/film. I would love her to stay here in Michigan. The Multimedia Jobs Act will provide the exact kinds of jobs that she wants to pursue. Other states like Illinois, Georgia, and California have similar programs (there are 40 other states with incentives), and I would hate to see her move away to follow her dream when she could do it in Michigan. Please support the Multimedia Jobs Act.

Investor Perspective
As a venture capitalist, I look for dynamic sectors that hold promise. Michigan's film industry, once a thriving hub, now presents an untapped opportunity. The state's diverse landscapes, skilled workforce, and rich cultural heritage make it a desirable location for multimedia projects if only there were the right incentives. The Multimedia Jobs Act is that missing piece, a catalyst that could turn Michigan into a multimedia powerhouse and provide significant returns for investors. Please support the Multimedia Jobs Act.

Tourism Official Perspective
Michigan is a state of untapped potential - our lush forests, vibrant cities, and historical landmarks are waiting for their close-ups. When a movie or TV show films here, we see a spike in tourism. People want to walk in the footsteps of their favorite characters, and that creates jobs and stimulates our local economies. The Multimedia Jobs Act can showcase the charm and diversity of Michigan, turning our state into a must-visit destination. Please support the Multimedia Jobs Act.

Chamber of Commerce Perspective
The Lansing Chamber of Commerce recognizes the profound ripple effect the multimedia industry has on our economy. From hospitality to retail, transportation to construction, multimedia productions have the potential to spur growth in a wide range of sectors. The Multimedia Jobs Act is an investment in Michigan's future, a chance to diversify our economy and bring about sustainable development across the state. Please support the Multimedia Jobs Act.
