Parking Structure With A Twist – Local Filmmakers To Make Documentary about “The Z”

Lately, “The Z” has captured all the buzz – a massive, ten-story, “Z”-shaped parking structure, retail center, and art gallery which recently opened its doors to the public last week.

A team of local filmmakers – including Sean “Seabright” Jackson, Jon Braue, and Joe Talbot – had the opportunity to capture an amazing series of moments.
