Film Warren is administered by Tracey Perry, Film Coordinator for the City, with a support staff of Christie Laabs. Film Warren was spearheaded by DDA and their Director, Lark Samouelian, together with Keith Williams (Information Systems Department), and Head Full of Ideas, a vendor secured through a multiple bid process.
