Feature films and various entertainment projects continue to pour into the State of Michigan in 2010, and Hollywood production companies are utilizing the sound stages, film processing lab, and post-production services at Grace & Wild Studios.

"Since the incentive package passed in 2008, we have completed film processing, dailies and sound design for numerous film and television projects," noted vice-president of sales Ginny Hart. "That's really only been the beginning for Grace & Wild Studios. We are seeing an increase in film productions staying on in Michigan to complete post-production and special effects, such as our involvement with 'Pirahna 3D', 'Restitution', and 'Harold & Kumar 3'."

Just a few of the high-profile productions to utilize Grace & Wild Studios' entertainment services in recent months include:

"30 Minutes or Less": Grace & Wild Studios is currently providing film processing for a new Ben Stiller produced comedy, "30 Minutes or Less."

Filming is being completed in Grand Rapids, and "30 Minutes or Less" has been the largest film project in Michigan to date. Upon completion, Grace & Wild's film lab will have processed in excess of 500,000 feet of film.
