The Florida Film and Entertainment Advisory Welcomes Mike Ossi

Mike Ossi

Mike Ossi, the Jacksonville attorney who has represented John Travolta, was appointed by Gov. Rick Scott Wednesday to the Florida Film & Entertainment Advisory Council, a 17-member group. He said he’ll push for more state and federal incentives for film and TV production in the state.

“I give you my word, this is just the beginning,” Ossi said. “We will have film after film here if we can just get a couple of things changed. And we’ll get them changed.”

Ossi was instrumental in bringing the film crew for Travolta's "Lonely Hearts" to Jacksonville, and was a producer of the Jimmy Fallon-Sharon Stone-Tom Arnold-Lucy Liu film, "The Year of Getting to Know Us." it too was shot in Ossi's hometown.

He said he misses those days when Hollywood stars visited the city to make movies, but that Florida can't currently compete with other states because of a lack of incentives for film crews.
