Send This Video To Budget Negotiators Today

Check out this video from the set of season two of Z Nation that stars Washington State cast and crew.

Send a link of the video to the legislators listed below so that they can see first hand how the incentive creates meaningful and important jobs for our local film professionals.

When writing to these elected officials, tell them who you are, what you do in the film industry, and why you think film is important in Washington State. Also consider including some of these facts and figures:

  • Z Nation is one of 101 projects that Washington Filmworks has financially supported through the production incentive program.
  • The production incentive program has created 14,000 jobs for local cast and crew.
  • Ours is the only incentive program in the country that requires productions to pay for health and retirement benefits.
Please send to the legislators below and ask them to include SB 6027 in the final budget:


Sen. John Braun (R,20),

Sen. Andy Hill (R,45),

Sen. Mark Schoesler (R,9)

House of Representatives
