White Center moviemaking: ‘Eden’ to shoot in downtown WC

By Deanie Schwarz
Reporting for White Center Now

Seattle filmmaker Megan Griffiths (whose “The Off Hours” premiered at Sundance) will be filming part of her next production “Eden” in White Center soon.

The businesses along 16th Ave. SW were given advance notice earlier this week by a location scout from Drummond Media notifying them of possible disruptions on the tentatively scheduled shoot date of Wednesday, August 17th from around 2:00 PM till 3:00 AM.

Barricades will be placed along 16th SW days in advance but will only apply on the day of shooting, at which time they will be removed from each area as filming is completed there. Signs will be placed by the production company informing the public that businesses are open even while the filming is under way.

More information about the production and filmmakers can be found on iMDB (go here) and at HollywoodReporter.com The plot is summarized as “A young Korean-American girl, abducted and forced into prostitution by domestic human traffickers, joins forces with her captors in a desperate plea to survive.” Jamie Chung stars; according to that Hollywood Reporter link, she’s been shooting a movie with Rob Lowe.

The filming is being coordinated by the Seattle Mayor’s Office of Film and Music and Washington FilmWorks
