As part of the City’s continuing efforts to support film production work on the streets and sidewalks of Seattle, the Office of Film + Music is now offering “Filming In Progress” signboards to productions obtaining film permits.
As Seattle’s streets stay busy with construction and other projects, these “PAs best friends” help passers-by know what’s happening, and help messaging for nearby businesses and residents.
If you are a location manager or a producer, ask about how to check the signboards out during your film permit application process. After review of your film permit application and the impact from your production’s work on the street or sidewalk, your Film Permit Specialist may also require you to check out specific signs to assist with pedestrian holds or to support open businesses at or near the filming location.
If you are walking around Seattle and see a local crew working with one of these signs, stop by and say hello (though we can’t guarantee the production will be anything but a mayonnaise commercial).
