Magnuson Studios Needs Your Support!

Imagine if Seattle had its very own professional film production soundstage!  A task force of 25 film and music professionals, led by the Sand Point Arts and Cultural Exchange (SPACE), submitted a proposal to Seattle Parks and Recreation to transform Building 2 at Magnuson Park into a state of the art soundstage. This empty building can be turned into a vibrant resource for Seattle & Washington State's film community! 

What can you do to help? Check out this blog post and write Seattle Parks and Recreation Superintendent Jesús Aguirre to tell him what a valuable resource this could be!
