Print This Post  Email This Post

The City of Burien recently re-launced their website, which we reviewed Sunday, and now they’ve released a brand spankin’ new “image” video called “Burien, The Place To Be” (aha…is “The Place To Be” our city’s new slogan?):

For those of you who can’t spare the precious five minutes to watch it, here’s our subjective shotsheet:

  • Nice scenic shots of various beaches and parks
  • Kids splashing through water
  • A seagull flying
  • Bike riders racing through town
  • Friendly female voiceover
  • Shots from the Strawberry Festival, Farmers Market, Music & Movies in the Park, etc.
  • A pedestrian traffic light changing from “Don’t Walk” to “Walk” (oooh…symbolism…)
  • Trash Ape at the Strawberry Festival while the Voiceover talks about the 4th of July Parade (oops)
  • Groovy action shots of kids skatin’ at the skatepark
  • Shots of local medical offices
  • Illustrations of Burien Town Square with unintentionally-humorous Voiceover touting “affordable housing” (we nearly LOL’d)
  • Feel-good testimonial interviews with:
    • Tara Farquhar, Real Estate Agent
    • Carla Galagher, Elementary School Teacher
    • Rodalfo Hernandez, Owner/Broker of SeaReal Investments (who then does a Spanish-translated version of his soundbite)
    • Richard St. Peter, President/CEO of Schick/Shadel Hospital
    • Dr. Kris Brecht, Adult & Pediatric Medicine of Burien
    • Todd Carden, Co-Owner of Elliott Bay Brewery
    • Rochelle Flynn, Burien Arts Commission Chair
  • Ending shot of hip dude at skatepark in an I (heart) Burien t-shirt saying “Gotta love Burien…”

So…check it out, let us know your thoughts (email us or Post A Comment below), and stand by for our nominations for a new slogan for Burien coming up soon (if you have any ideas, please email them in ASAP!).
