Locally Grown is a webisode shot at Shoreline CC
and available for viewing online

When the creation of the Shoreline Film Office was announced in May (see previous article), Tony Doupé, working actor and head of the performing arts and film department at Shoreline Community College, talked about all the projects which were already taking place in Shoreline and using the resources of Shoreline Community College.

Dan Eernissee, Economic Development project manager for the City of Shoreline, showed pictures of a back parking lot full of trucks which were loading in sets and equipment for a part of a feature film shot at Shorecrest High School.

Shoreline residents have probably driven by film projects in process without even knowing what they were seeing.

Here's the list of recent projects from Tony Doupé. These projects all had some involvement with the City of Shoreline and Shoreline Community College. Tony and the rest of the Shoreline Film Office board expect to have many more projects.

Feature films:
  • Laggies, directed by Lynn Shelton, shot at Shorecrest High school
  • Koinonia, directed by Andrew Finnigan, shot a scene on the Shoreline CC campus
  • Pacific Aggression, directed by Shaun Scott, is in pre-production and will shoot on campus in July
  • The Servant, did casting at the college and will be shot later this summer, with some scenes at the college.
Staged Readings:

Road Trip from Hell and the Darker Path both held staged readings at Shoreline CC and are in pre-production.

Seattle International Film Festival did casting at the college for the Fly Film series

Webisodes - (TV series whose episodes are only online and viewed via your computer)
  • State Route 99, Directed by David Golden, was shot entirely in the city of Shoreline
  • Locally Grown, shot at Shoreline CC, launched last Wednesday. 
An article in Wednesday's Seattle Times covers the making of Locally Grown.
"Farmers markets. A spoofy plotline. Local guest stars. Could this be our Portlandia
"At the least, it’s ‘Locally Grown,’ a comedy web show based on a fictional farmers market, shot partly at the Ballard Farmers Market and Shoreline Community College. 
Familiar faces from Seattle’s theatrical community and celebrity scene show up as characters or in guest cameos, including Dave Dederer, formerly of The Presidents of the United States of America, John Curley, and Cynthia Lauren Tewes of Love Boat fame, who later (this is real life, not a satirical plot twist), became a Seattle-based cheese steward as well as acting on local stages."
Read the entire article and watch the pilot episode, available at Locally Grown TV.

Short films:
  • The Strong Man, directed by Brion Rockwell, did post-sound production at the college
  • Ashland, directed by Kris Bousdedt, shot at the college
  • GE shot a commercial in the fall at the college

And the City of Shoreline is proposing the construction of a complete sound stage for the above when the Seattle has not been able to support a sound stage? Where is the money tree to pay for it?

Fools rush in where angels fear to tread.
