"Black Sky" starring Richard Armitage was filmed at Oakview Middle School and on campus at Oakland University in Rochester.
The action-adventure movie filmed in Oakland Township and Rochester last summer is in post-production, as the movie's cast and crew have been releasing a few details about its plot and target release date.

Armitage was asked about the movie in an interview for a British talk show; he said it involved "pretty dangerous stuff" and that it's "completely different" from his work in "The …

The 2012 approval of a millage to help support the museum "was an amazing statement on regionalism," DIA chief operating officer Annmarie Erickson said recently.
Regionalism was the word of the day recently when the Detroit Institute of Arts announced which suburban communities will host Inside|Out installations this spring and summer. Oakland Township's neighbor Rochester Hills was among the 25 communities selected to host reproductions of the museum's masterpieces as part of the 2013 program, which will be the first since a millage to help support the DIA was passed in August. Voters in Oakland, Macomb and Wayne counties approved a tax of 0.2 mills for the next 10 years to help cover the museum's operating costs. In return, tri-county residents will receive free admission to the DIA for the next decade. In the meanwhile, the museum's fundraisers will work to build a sustainable endowment. "I …
