In case you missed it our relatively new New Mexico Film Office Director, Nick Maniatis guested with host and colleague NM Filmmakers Program Director, Trish Lopez on Saturday’s NM Film Works broadcast.
Along with valuable information such as a crash course on the true, current incentive breakdown here, Maniatis promises his “cheer leading” services, statewide canvassing, an “education summit” and more support of independents.
Recognizing the losses the past legislative handling and perception has dealt the state film program Maniatis and Lopez seem optimistic and extremely supportive of growing the industry from within while at the ready to take the message that, “we’re here, we’re ready to do business” to the nation to continue bringing productions home.
Maniatis heads to L.A. this week to meet with “basically all,” the major studios on both the film and television sides to encourage more productions to head our way.
Listen to the full broadcast including what a late 2011-Q1 2012 NM Film/Edu. Summit would entail and exactly how many ways Maniatis encourages NM “entrepreneurship” here.
