Film Crew on Beach Drive today

Earlier today, we spied a film crew at apartments between Cormorant Cove and Constellation Park.

The infamous ever intrepid reporter Scupper discovered that the movie is a “short film”.

Do you recall the sinking of The Dix? Check out this video.

One of our readers shared this video with us of the sinking of passenger ship, The Dix.  Thanks, Mark!

Filming near Mee Kwa Mooks Park

Right now a commercial for Wave Broadband is being filmed near Mee Kwa Mooks with an undisclosed star. Our intrepid Scupper says his lips are sealed… yet puckered, regarding the identity of the actress.

Trailer from Ira Finklesteins Christmas

The trailer for the movie that had some scenes filmed at a Beach Drive home and Alki Beach late April is available to watch for your viewing pleasure.

Untitled from Von Piglet Productions on Vimeo.

The water scenes that are supposed to be a Florida beach was actually on Alki and the scene that is Ira (or the boy pretending to be Ira) sleeping in a sunny room and Elliot Gould saying "Ira! Ira! Ira!" is the Beach Drive home.

Filming is taking place today at the Beach Drive home for Ira Finklestein's Christmas.


The street is lined with cars, movie crew vans and motorhomes across from Emma Schmitz Viewpoint.
