The Michigan Film Office revealed it's operating plan at MPA's October meeting. MFO Director Margaret O'Riley discussed the plan she called their "Operating Plan" and provided copies for those attending. We are providing a link to it for your review. It should also be available on the MFO website.
On Friday May 3 2013 The Michigan Film Office released its 1st and 2nd quarter reports such as they are. The current legislation requires certain information to be included but there seems to be wide latitude in what details must be included. For example, there is too much background and boiler plate information in relationship to what could be included such as the names of projects that applied, those that were approved and those that were denied. Also, it would be useful to know if any new infrastructure or training were fostered by the program or indeed if there are any threats to the program. We are most pleased to see these documents on the public record but always hope for greater detail.
The most current list of MFOAC members and their contact is above as the Governor has reappointed Hopwood Depree and appointed Sanford Nelson, John Loeks and Terry Terry. MPA encourages you to develop diaglogue with MFOAC members regarding the state of the industry. You may send email to them and if it for an MFOAC meeting, be sure to indicate whether you would like your communication to be part of the public record.
