Share Where You Shop For Production


Motion picture production does not only impact film support businesses – it impacts ALL business!

We urge you to share the graphic below with budget negotiators in Olympia. This pie chart shows how approved productions spent money directly in our communities. What’s interesting about it? Only 5.62% of businesses that productions spent money with are identified as film-specific companies by the state.

Let’s remind the budget negotiators in Olympia that film production affects a diversity of businesses statewide. From grocery stores and lumberyards to hotels and restaurants and on to camera houses, motion picture production impacts every sector of Washington’s economy.

Write the Senate and House budget negotiators listed below and share with them this link. In writing, tell these elected officials what types of businesses you have spent money with on your last production. 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

Rep. Pat Sullivan (D,47)

Mark your calendars:
