Schmitz Park access limited this weekend — film crew at work

(Art by Susan K. Miller)
If you’ve been thinking about going to Schmitz Preserve Park this weekend, note that access will be limited, as the film crew associated with the online series “Star Trek: Phoenix” is back. We’ve received two notes about this today – one from Susan K. Miller, author of Picturing and Poeting, a Schmitz Park-centric site, who writes on her site that the notices posted at the park say the film activity will be happening tomorrow and Sunday. She created the art above – explaining:

The porta potty at the Admiral Ave. entrance to Schmitz Preserve Park was the first indication something was up. There are two 8×11″ paper signs saying that Temporal Studios, a local film production company, is filming “a short film” Saturday and Sunday, Aug 29 and 30 from 6am-10pm at the entrance and inside the park. Visitors may not be able to access that entrance or parts of the park, the signs said.

The “Temporal Studios” mentioned on the notices reported by that author is the “ST: Phoenix” production company; they shot in Schmitz Park a month ago (here’s what we wrote afterward).

    If I have one of the red shirt away team uniforms on, can I run in and die in one of their scenes?

    We actually didn’t read any of the signs and went in anyway. Lukily they ewere eating lunch…and didn’t offer to share.

    I hike in Schmitz every weekend with my kids. We were kicked out of the park the last time they had “limited access” as my 2 and 4 year old could not obey the “quite” rules. As a West Seattle resident who loves this park, I am kind of annoyed that we need to change our plans so a film crew can occupy the park on a beautiful weekend day during the summer. I guess thank you WSB for the heads up – and I we will have the opportunity to discover another of WS parks…

Sorry, comment time is over.
