New Mexico Actress Goes to the Dogs

Posted by on October 16, 2014 | No comments

New Mexico Actress Lora Cunningham raising money for dog resucueimage via the taos news

Beloved New Mexico based actress, Lora Cunningham, is in the midst of marking a big birthday year and rather than a flashy Hollywood style hullabaloo, this down to earth performer and acting instructor is staying true to her roots and her heart by focusing on pet rescue as part of her celebration.

THIS FRIDAY, Cunningham is inviting friends & fellow animal welfare supporters to join her at her very own fundraiser that looks suspiciously like a really good time!

“This birthday is a big one, and I want to make it count!

Come celebrate with me, and The Sandia Bar will donate 10% of the night’s profits to the wonderful local animal shelter, Almost Home New Mexico. They take in the animals other shelters are going to kill– the old, the sick, the ones considered “unadoptable” for whatever reason. Almost Home New Mexico keeps and cares for them, while finding them foster and hopefully forever homes.

The photo on this invitation is of one of my sister’s dogs, Josh. He was abandoned in the Foothills. My sister was able to catch his sister, but Josh evaded her for 2 hours, until he finally lost her. He was later found in someone’s yard. They turned him over to animal control, where his right eye had to be removed, due to trauma. Almost Home nursed him to health and kept him for over a year, until my sister was able to adopt him.

I want to help these hard-working and dedicated people, so that they may continue their vitally-important work.


Friday, October 17
6:00 PM to 11:00 PM
The Sandia Bar
4445 Corrales Road, Corrales, NM 87048
Between St. Francis and West Ella Dr.


Almost Home New Mexico

In lieu of gifts/cards, please consider giving to Almost Home New Mexico.
There are 3 ways:
1. Come out and have drinks with Lora!!!
2. Come out, don’t drink, but give a little in the donation jar at the bar.
3. If you can’t make it– please donate on their website here.

The most powerful New Mexico film you will see this year

Posted by on October 12, 2014 | No comments

Narrated by New Mexico’s own Steven Michael Quezada, “NMBH1001 BEHAVIORALNM 2930H” is the real life horror story of what has become of Behavioral Health resources and services in our great state.

As unconscionable as the denigrating measures described in the film may seem, a recent Election 2014 inquiry by the League of Women Voters of Central New Mexico yielded an answer from the state’s sitting Governor which failed to even include a mention of behavioral and mental health needs, though the question itself specifically asked to comment on meeting those needs.

NOTE: There are specific requirements for certain roles in this film. Please contact us for details.

HIDEOUS: While traveling across country on tour, six band members run into trouble on the road. Seeking help, they find themselves at a couples farmhouse, terrorized by a dark presence that has loomed there for decades.


ANNA Early 20s, girl next door, pretty, motherly. Works as a waitress in a small town restaurant. She and Billy have been together for almost two years…it’s been a rough relationship. He spends much of his time on the road pursing his music career. She loves him, but doesn’t really know if he can take care of her and the baby on the way.

BILLY Tall – Lead Singer- Late 20s, Long Hair, Rugged, Quiet and Collected. A frustrated man, he constantly tries to please himself and others, but has trouble doing so. He is constantly trying to quit smoking. He dropped out of high school to start a band with his best friend Riley and has been pursing his dream ever since. Music is Billy’s passion. He loves Anna, but fears not being able to take care of her because of his music dream. He is what most would call an unlikely hero.

RILEY Drummer – late 20s, Athletic build. Best friends with Billy since childhood. He’s rowdy, likes to party and fight. Riley grew up with an abusive father. Although he appears confident, it’s a facade. He views himself as a loser. He looks to music as his only chance of leaving his hometown and making something of himself.

JESSE Bass – Early 20s, Naive, skinny, shoulder length hair and a beard. Jesse isn’t a leader; he’s the newest member of the band, but really looks at Riley and Billy as older brothers. Music is his hobby and one day plans on traveling the world and settling down to become a lawyer. Jesse is an all around good guy.

TIM Backup Singer and Lead Guitarist – Mid 20s, Good looking and comes from money. He’s constantly in competition with Billy and is secretly in love with Anna. He thinks he’s quite the charmer, he has a nice guy appeal to him, but has hidden motives. He plans on starting a solo operation soon.

JENNY Groupie – Mid 20s – A free spirit and not looking for anything serious. She goes where the wind blows her. She grew up in a small town. She likes Riley, but will settle for any one of the band members.


CECILE Late 50s, grandmotherly in nature. She and her husband Walter have been through a lot in their years together. She lost her only daughter when she and Walter were younger.

WALTER Late 50s, quiet and weary. He feels responsible for the death of his daughter and has spent the extent of his life trying to reconcile the loss.

JUAN DIEGO Latino, Late 30s, unfaithful husband, married to Esperanza.

ESPERANZA Latina, late 30s. Once upon a time she and Juan Diego were madly in love, that is until they decided to start a family, and after continuously trying, discovered that Esperanza was unable to bear children. This was devastating news to the couple and, over time, Juan Diego became distant from his wife and would spend weeks at a time away working. When Esperanza discovers that not only is her husband having an affair, but that his mistress is also pregnant, Esperanza becomes enraged and seeks revenge.

RING MAN Late early 50s, tall, intimidating and weathered. (Bad Guy)

DRIFTER 1 Late 40s, works for the Ring Man. (Henchman)

DRIFTER 2 Late 40s, works for the Ring Man. (Henchman)

FORTUNE TELLER Female, 50s – 70s , Sweet yet eccentric woman who has a grandmotherly nature to her.

BONNIE 20s – Groupie chick, good looking and flirtatious.
