" A resounding success" said Tracy Codd, local Attorney. He was talking about the gathering of film and arts enthusiasts that gathered at the Tin Theater Tuesday night, Feb. 2, for what is hoped will be the first of many Burien Film Office 'Happy Hours'.
The main purpose of the Burien Film Office's 'Happy Hour" is an opportunity for the City, Filmmakers, Artist and Burien Citizens to come together to learn about current and upcoming film projects. The next 'Happy Hour' will be from 5:30 to 7:00pm on Tuesday, March 1 at the Tin Theater. According to the Film Office's web site https://www.burienwa.gov/index.aspx?NID=1060, " Whether you have a steadfast plan or just an idea, we encourage you to reach out to the City. This office is committed to helping prospective filmmakers find the information they need to start filming at City locations."
