We are two independent filmmakers from Seattle, Washington. When we began this project, we felt it was necessary to document the 619 Western building and its inhabitants before their March 2012 move-out date. Since that date has been suddenly bumped up to October 1st, 2011, we've been scrambling to capture the true story of 619 Western.
The Impact By documenting the 619 Western building, we will be able to preserve its legacy and share its story for generations to come. In order to capture the whole story and convey what 619 really represents to Seattle, we need to devote all of our effort to this project. Without enough support, we simply will not be able to do it, and the memory of the 619 Western building will be just that- a memory.
What We Need & What You Get
We need help to get this thing made, and made well! Assistant editors are a massive help because they can look through footage while we are still filming, saving us huge time in post-production. We need money for this because, well, everyone's gotta eat and we'd rather support someone who was supporting us than ask them to work for free!
We are short a couple of microphones and storage space for the massive amount of footage we will be capturing. These two things will make us much more effective as filmmakers!
Post production is often the most expensive part of filmmaking. We want this documentary to have stellar animation and impressive scoring, because after all 619 was about art and this film should be a work of art in and of itself!!
Other Ways You Can Help Anybody with an interest in art, history, Seattle, or any combination of the three would want to know about what is happening. Please, help us get the word out, and tell everyone you can about this project!
