About Ann Arbor

Ann Arbor is approximately 50 miles due west of Detroit and serves as the county seat of Washtenaw County. The 2020 census marked the population at almost 124,000 in nearly 50,000 households. Ann Arbor became the county seat of Washtenaw County in 1827 and was incorporated as a village in 1833.

From the original 640 acres, 40 acres were set aside for the donation to the state of Michigan for the site of its capital. However, the bid was lost to nearby Lansing. In 1837, the 40 acres became the site of the University of Michigan campus. Ann Arbor has become known as “Tree Town due to its dense forests and treed neighborhoods as well as the 157 parks within the city’s 30 square miles.

You will not be disappointed when searching for a film shoot location in Ann Arbor because there are so many to choose from. From cozy cabins to huge green spaces, whatever you are looking for, you can find it there.

Film Shoot Location Options in Ann Arbor

The venue options offered for film shoot locations in Ann Arbor vary greatly with a vast array of different sizes, designs, and styles. Once you find what you are looking for, you will need to start thinking about the vendors in town that can assist you in your planning.

  • Location Rentals
    The setting of the stage for the film shoot is specific to the project, but the setting of the item’s ancillary to the stage and the crew is a separate line item for the budget. These items are necessary for the back-of-house work and services to support the shoot. These rentals include tables, chairs, pole and frame tents, and trash and recycling dumpsters and containers, along with the delivery, set-up, and breakdown.

  • Catering
    The company providing food service to film shoots must have the experience and the versatility to work with clients to develop the menu, the service style, and the times of the service. Should the film shoot be all day or multi-day, then the service needs to be tailored to the timing of the snack and beverage refills between the meal servings.

  • Permitting
    The city of Ann Arbor does not require a permit specific to filming. However, a permit will be required if any aspect of the film shoot requires the use or the blocking of a sidewalk or a right-of-way, or if the shoot location takes place on city-owned property.

Pros and Cons of Film Shoot Locations in Ann Arbor

The consideration of the advantages and disadvantages is more than separating the items into columns for an item-by-item comparison. An informed decision cannot be based upon one disadvantage or the out-numbering of several small advantages.

Advantages

  • Choices of venues
    Given the choices of venues and the diverse outdoor scenes offered in Ann Arbor, there is an opportunity to set a stage for any theme or style. Should the storyline or a particular scene meld with the specialty commercial spaces and the décor, then most of the early stages of planning and budgeting will be nearly complete.

  • Walkability
    The downtown area of Ann Arbor has a walk score of 93 and a bike score of 87. Outside of the core and into the neighborhoods, the walk score falls to 77, but the bike score rises to 89.

  • Michigan film industry
    The Michigan legislature is working to reinstate the 25% tax credit on production-related expenses for feature films, television series, and streaming productions. There will be an additional 5% credit if the marketing and promotional materials include the “Filmed in Michigan” logo.

Disadvantages

  • Climate
    With hot summers and cold winters, you will need to prepare for extreme weather conditions. The city averages almost 60 inches of snow annually too, so pack your boots and long johns if your film shoot is in the winter.

  • U of M Film Office guidelines
    The University of Michigan Film Office has strict guidelines regarding any filming on campus. The day-to-day student and research activities are the focus, as well as the protection of the U of M brand.

  • Scale of services
    Because of the sunsetting of the film tax incentive program in 2015, Michigan has not been on the radar of the film industry. Therefore, the support services will not be local to Ann Arbor until the tax incentive program is in place for some time.
