Film office OKs incentives for 2 feature films

Posted: Updated:
LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan Film Office says two feature films have been approved for nearly $200,000 in state incentives.

"Heartlock" will get a $139,000 incentive. It's expected to shoot scenes in Jackson and at the Standish Correctional Facility.

According to the film office, "Paid in Full" is getting a $48,000 incentive.

The movie hopes to raise awareness about human trafficking around the world and follows the story of an Indian-American girl seeking to avenge the death of her sister.

"Paid in Full" begins production this month in Novi and will do all of its post-production work in Michigan.

The state's Film Office says 11 projects have been awarded $43.5 million in incentives during fiscal year 2014.
