Filming grant may put Miami on Love Map (miamitodaynews.com)
A romantic comedy movie expected to air on the Lifetime Network about a relationship guru finding love in unlikely places is seeking a $50,000 county grant to shoot here this month.
County commissioners were to have considered the grant application from Holiday Films LLC Wednesday. The authorizing resolution, sponsored by Sally Heyman, did not receive committee approval beforehand and was expedited to a final vote by Chairman Jose “Pepe” Diaz.
In its application, Holiday Films said it plans to shoot 12 of 15 days in Miami-Dade, where it will spend $530,000 on production, employ at least 20 county residents and hire “above 70%” of the vendors it uses locally.
