Rise & Shine @ MPI


For twenty years now the Motion Picture Institute has been dedicated to training and creating visionary film and digital media makers.  The walls of our institute display an ever growing hall of fame for graduates now making a successful living in the motion picture industry.  Yes it's true, you can train here and make it anywhere! 

Michigan area ACTORS have played a large role in helping both MPI and its graduates become a success.  MPI's bi-annual AUDITIONS are well known around the state and have become a welcome tradition.  Twice a year MPI opens it's doors to area actors for a day long event that is part individual auditions, part networking and just plain fun.  The OPEN CASTING CALL is held every January and again in the Spring to coincide with projects the film students are producing.  The recent May 2017 auditions had 145 actors attend. This becomes an incredible opportunity for actors wanting to get on camera experience. Many of the student films will go on to play in prominent film festivals around the country.
