VIDEO: Here’s episode 1 of new ‘The Briefing’ Port of Seattle documentary film

FOLLOWUP: Des Moines resident Steve Edmiston reports that his new documentary film project – intended to provide a “briefing” to the Port of Seattle Commissioners addressing the harms to airport neighbor communities resulting from aircraft noise and emissions resulting from increased flights at Sea-Tac Airport – is off to a solid start with widespread interest and positive feedback on social media.

Edmiston, a local attorney and filmmaker, must provide his briefing in 2-minute public comment segments, as provided by Port rules. Based upon the Port Commission’s schedule, Edmiston estimates the project will take 9 to 12 months to complete.

“Based upon the comments and sharing we see on social media, and calls and e-mails I’ve received from around the country, it seems fair to say the project is off to a solid start and what that means is that our airport neighbor community, and similar airport communities around the country, are paying attention,” Edmiston said. “I think our citizens want the Commissioners to take this information – that they were not provided by the FAA last year – seriously and that they are watching to see how the Commissioners will react.”

The first episode of The Briefing, titled “The Briefing You Should Have Had,” can be viewed below:

    Thanks Steve for letting the POS commissioners hear what they didn’t hear from the FAA. Its a travesty, that you have to give your comments, at 2 minute intervals. Is that all were worth when are health and sanity, is at stake? Again, thank you from all the communities surrounding the airport…

    Hi Steve, great action! I live in theNetherlands. Similar problems here. I started a global petition because people worldwide are ignored by the aviation industry.
