  1. The first thing I’d like to say about this article is that this is good news for Ballard, especially for the residents of Ballard, because it shows how good Ballard is in filmmaking and that there are many talented people who live and work in Ballard. It’s also good news for the citizens of Seattle because they can be proud of these two people and their achievements. The public will know more about their city and they will be encouraged to support their local artists and art centers. I have just read full article that is discussing top films about unrecognized writers made by the Ballard filmmakers. The ideas presented by these filmmakers are truly amazing.
