“We believe in collective story-telling”


Much like the name Collective Development Incorporated implies, this
Michigan-based company was initially created in 1996 to develop screenplay
properties and later launched into motion picture production.
CDI is committed to an overall concept of collective story-telling. Knowing that
sometimes the best way to educate is to first entertain and then subtly bring
positive messages to light, CDI strives to incorporate entertaining and
meaningful content throughout every project.
CDI has produced several feature films in various genres and prides itself on the
ability to draw together the tribe to create any project, regardless of the type
of story being told. While early, non-signatory projects do reflect the limited
budget of first films, production value has increased over the years as has our
skill set, talent bank, and, yes, budget. We’re proud of where we’re headed,
and where we started. We draw from a stable of highly unique, creative writers
and directors for our projects.
