About The Motion Picture Institute of Michigan

For fourteen years, MPI has been the launching pad for many aspiring filmmakers who’ve gone to work on mega-budget movies like Avatar, directed by James Cameron, Batman: The Dark Knight, directed by Christopher Nolan or John Carter directed by Andrew Stanton. MPI has also helped our graduates produce their own work, such as the award-winning feature Detroit Unleaded, directed by MPI graduate Rola Nashef, the feature Nevermore, starring Judd Nelson & Vincent Spano and directed by MPI graduate Tom Zambeck. These graduates all began their careers by enrolling in the Motion Picture Production Program.

Our aim at MPI is to offer our students a training ground that stays current with technological advances. Our hands-on production curriculum continues to stress technique over theory while our creative curriculum challenges their imaginations. Most important, we give our students a supportive environment with personalized attention where they can explore their interests.
