Back in October, we premiered a trailer for a new documentary being produced on Burien, called “Where We Live Now, Burien.”

This documentary is still in production, and another clip has been released, this time focusing on Burien’s Skatepark located at SW 144th and 4th Ave SW, near the community center.

Here’s an intro for this segment from the Editor’s (Rowan North) YouTube Channel:

“This is a section from a working documentary about the power of community collaboration and grassroots democracy in Burien, Washington…”

Here’s the clip:

As we mentioned before, the crew behind this production includes many well-known Northwest video folks, such as:

  • Executive Producer: Anne Stadler, community leadership consultant, formerly KING-TV5 documentaries and specials Producer
  • Co-Producers and Writers: Terry Tazioli, writer/on-air Host, formerly with The Seattle Times, KING-TV5
  • Lucy Mohl, formerly Senior Manager, Microsoft (and previously KING-TV, and RealNetworks)
  • Production Manager, Videographer, Editor: Aaron Stadler,
  • Videographers: Bill Fenster,
  • Diana Wilmar,
  • Videographer/Editor: Rowan North, LinkedIn
  • Still Photographer: Kimi Milo
  • Audio: Stevan Smith
  • Scott MacLaughlin
  • Robin Sarmento

This project is still in production, and like most productions-in-progress, is still seeking funds to complete it.

Executive Producer Anne Stadler says:

“We’re looking for at least $7,000. One thing we want to do is get this packaged with a series of discussion questions to market to Mayors and City governments around the state and country. So anything more that we raise, will go toward THAT. Haven’t budgeted for that yet.

Donations will go towards editing the doc, as well as producing a couple of shorter pieces: skate park and young people; Burien and BIAS.”

Here’s how you can help:

Send whatever you can to the Sunyata Foundation; all Donors will get their names in the credits, as well as a DVD of the video, along with the heartwarming knowledge that you helped promote Your Burien (keep in mind that this is a non-profit, 501-C3 organization):

Sunyata Foundation
PO Box 58788
Renton WA. 98058

As more elements get produced, we’ll preview clips here…so stay tuned to The B-Town Blog.

  1. We’ve proudly used the Burien skatepark as a great example of several key design and siting principles to cities and towns across the nation. I’m excited to see such professional assistance in a production like this. (I’ve spent hundreds of hours at the Burien skatepark.)

    I don’t think this short article makes it clear exactly what the purpose of the production is.

    “One thing we want to do is get this packaged with a series of discussion questions to market to Mayors and City governments around the state and country.”

    What does that mean?

    Anyway, excellent subject…excellent mission…excellent idea!
