The Story Of We Make Seattle

In 2012, Seattle Mayor McGinn convened a leadership roundtable, discussing Seattle’s reputation across the nation, and the desire among many entrepreneurs and creatives to do a better job telling the story of our great city. Scott Berkun was there and saw an opportunity: why doesn’t the community make the film itself?

He partnered with Bryan Zug at Bootstrapper Studios, and launched a kickstarter campaign, raising over $30,000 from 261 backers, including sponsorships from Tableau, Zillow, Jackson Fish Market, Nick Finck, WA State Dept of Commerce and Whitepages.

The long awaited short film is almost here. World Premiere is Thursday March 24, 7:30pm

Come And Get It

As a community project, we’ve promised to make the footage available to other filmmakers who want to tell their own story about Seattle, or remix our film in creative ways. If you’re interested, contact us and we’ll get you started.
