The Shoreline Film Office, a collaborative effort to expand digital media production in Shoreline led by Shoreline Community College and the City of Shoreline and, is hosting the first two public screenings of “Pacific Aggression,” a film written and directed by Shoreline CC (and Shorewood) alum Shaun Scott.

‘Pacific Aggression,’ Wednesday, April 2 at 4:30pm and 7:30pm, Shoreline Community College Theater. A free event “The Shoreline Film Office is amazing,” said Scott, the Washington Filmworks Innovation Award Winner. “I was given affordable office and rehearsal space, students worked on my production, and I shot many scenes in Shoreline.”

Tony Doupé, of Shoreline’s Performance Arts/Digital Film Program, said having such projects on campus and in the city is one of the benefits of the Shoreline Film Office. “Having Shaun back on campus inspires our students,” Doupé said.

The film was also made possible in part by a Shoreline Business Mini-Grant, which awards grants to artists like Scott who partner with Shoreline businesses. Scott teamed with Isaac Meek, founder and owner of Shoreline’s Undercaste Studios, a recording, mixing, and masking studio of pop, hip hop, R&B, and electronic music.

“Pacific Aggression” follows a blogger’s pursuit of happiness that climaxes in Seattle when he tries saving his girlfriend from her addiction to social networking websites. It is a highly stylized tour of the times as framed by technology in the 21st Century, starring local talents Erwin Galan, Mark Waldstein, Trevor Young Marston and Marya Sea Kaminski along with Gerald Grissette, who is also appearing in a just-finished film starring Kim Bassinger.

Scott will curate the 4:30pm screening of Pacific Aggression by showing the film in segments with commentary and Q&A. The uninterrupted 7:30pm screening will be followed by a talk-back. Pacific Aggression will likely be rated PG-13 with its expected release in September.

The public screenings are free and limited to the capacity of the Shoreline Theater. There is a small charge for on campus parking.
