As long as I’ve been a business writer, I’ve been hearing how important it is for Florida to remain a major player in film production.It’s a big business nationally — motion picture and video production tops $80 billion annually, according to a U.S. Census report.Florida certainly gets its share of Hollywood blockbusters, TV shows and music videos shot in locations across South Florida.But when the camera stops rolling, the sets get packed up, and the directors and A-listers, at least those without homes here, leave town. A true measure of staying power is growing a grass roots industry — meaning local productions that are cast and shot here with local actors and actresses in local studios.One of those is about to appear on the silver screen next month.
