Filmmaker Rich Brauer has been awarded tax incentives worth more than $150,000 dollars to make his next movie.
The movie Dogman will be among the last to receive the generous film subsidy put in place by former Governor Jennifer Granholm. That program, which reimburses filmmakers as much as 42 percent of some costs ends on October 1st.
Film incentives will continue to be awarded but the program will be cut back and percentages have not been decided yet by the legislature.
Brauer Productions is based in Traverse City. Dogman is a movie about a northern Michigan legend. It will be shot in Benzie County.
Last week, Filmmaker Harold Cronk received an award of $156,000 dollars for his film, Mickey Matson and the Copperhead Conspiracy. Cronk works out of 10 West Studios in Manistee.
