who we are
Greenwood District Studios will be Michigan’s first Black-Owned Movie Studio with certified soundstages. What this means is industry movies can be filmed in their entirety in one location. The Studio is named after the 1921 Tulsa, Oklahoma, race riots. The area most affected was called Black Wall Street, which was in the Greenwood District. Due to the mental illness called racism, it was burned to the ground. Fast forward to 2020, and this horrific stain in our history has either been dwindled down to a myth or it simply just didn’t happen. We must never forget!
“I believe the GREENWOOD DISTRICT STUDIO project is perfectly poised to capitalize on important changes in the entertainment industry. This is a bold yet viable step in a most promising direction and I am proud to be a part of it.”
"I've been on many sets where a setback ends the whole shoot. Not these guys! They push through and make it happen, no matter what!"
"I'm super excited about what Greenwood District Studios will do for our region! Go Delta Township!"
"To understand the importance of Greenwood District Studios in Lansing is to achieve the inclusion, diversity, and equity our community deserves."
"G.D.S. is a community effort to bring live professional entertainment along with a movie studio to Lansing. G.D.S. is being about it!"
"Knowing what must be done does away with fear."
"We will show the industry what inclusion looks like!"
"A black owned studio also gives minority children in the community an example of future possibilities."
