VISIT SEATTLE | Project 5X5
A short film series that goes beyond selling things to do, but rather sharing Seattle's unique culture, icons and stories in a way that's as progressive and immersive as the city itself.
TOUCH OF SEATTLE
In this short, we move from the raw beauty of towering trees to the myriad ways Seattle dwellers and visitors alike can experience the transformed forest with their own hands. While the city's skyline is iconic, the forests were Seattle's first skyscrapers and are the featured players in this quiet portrait of a green city.
Seattle has a unique relationship to its natural surroundings. This short explores the process of harnessing the purest parts of Seattle and follows them on a journey from farm to counter, where a ferry ride plays an integral role in bringing delicious experiences to the people of Seattle. Directed by Clea DuVall.
JIMI COULD HAVE FALLEN FROM THE SKY
This short is the unauthorized, heavily abridged, biographical, visual and supersonic moment about the fact that Johnny Allen Hendrix (aka Jimi Hendrix) knew how to skydive. Set in Seattle where Jimi was born and raised, the film wonders aloud about what this skill meant for the life he went on to lead.
SCENT OF SASQUATCH
Did you know the Sasquatch is the unofficial mascot of Seattle? Watch as her excellent sense of smell guides her on a tour of all the city has to offer, from breweries and coffee roasters to shorelines, forests and wildlife, in this animated short. Directed by Drew Christie.
ALL AT SEA
Bruce Lee's relationship with Seattle inspires this short: a fictionalized account of a brief moment in his life when he felt isolated, frustrated and restless. But the sight of the of Seattle's skyline from his boat on the Puget Sound reminds him how to find his balance, and allows his mind to once again be as fluid as water.
