Every filmmaker knows the first take is rarely the best take. Precisely why Washington Filmworks has launched Take 2, our new legislative blog and information resource for all things related to renewal. We’ve spent the last few months assessing last year’s campaign and have a ton of new ideas and strategies up our sleeves. Think of this space as Command Central for information about the Motion Picture Competitiveness Program.

The 2012 legislative session begins Monday, Jan. 9th. We continue to work with an economist and political strategist to build the best story that supports our campaign for renewal. We ask that the community join our efforts and urge their elected officials to restore the program and save film production in the Evergreen State.

We’ll need the help of the film community to make our campaign a success and we’re excited to have you on board. The blog will be frequently updated with information on how you can get involved. To include:

  • Talking points
  • Letters of Support
  • Facts and stats about Washington production
  • Testimonials
  • How to write your legislators
  • And much more…

Stay tuned!
