Jeff Spilman, managing partner of S3, made the announcement.
The studio increases S3’s film service capabilities and fosters further film industry expansion in Michigan. The studio is a proven resource for filmmakers and the stage was previously utilized for the production of the major motion picture Youth in Revolt, starring Michael Cera, set to open this Friday, January 8, 2010. S3 has already secured six film projects for the studio in 2010. These six productions will create approximately 1,000 jobs during the next twelve months.
