PENINSULAENTERTAINMENT™ was formed in December of 2009 and obtained Limited Liability Company status in early 2010. It's founders, Justin T. Cross, CEO and published writer Naomi E. Bigelow, President/Resident Agent formed the company in response to Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm's action in April of 2008, when she signed into law (with almost unanimous bipartisan support) the Michigan Film Tax Credit which opened up many doors for the Film, TV and Digital Media industries in Michigan. The State of Michigan began seeing massive growth in productions that had previously been few and far between which also had the added benefit of supporting local businesses, local economy, state employment, local and state tourism.
Since that time Michigan has had a change in leadership and the incentive program, sending many industry professionals and productions packing. PENINSULAENTERTAINMENT™ continues to be dedicated to making quality movies right here in the State of Michigan. While we may not always have the option to do so, at every opportunity, we will utilize movie industry businesses & professionals within the state for our productions. We will also continue to utilize local and regional businesses in both daily operations and when in production.
While the productions and economic opportunities may at times find us filming in other states and countries, Michigan is a beautiful place with a versatile landscape and people and we are here to stay.
We are PENINSULAENTERTAINMENT™ and we are Michigan Made for Worldwide Entertainment!
