The words, “fifth and final” have been tough ones to swallow ’round here in the world of New Mexico Film, as two of the most long lasting and acclaimed productions in NM history have reached their end.
Anyhow, the New Mexico son who has worked, and worked in the entertainment industry to make a name for himself, and Nuevo México for more than 20 years, has achieved some of the recognition he deserves as one of the few, the proud, and the still living on “the best show on television”!

Congratulations to this ALL NEW MEXICO cast and crew!
In this con-gone-wrong comedy, a boozy, disenchanted small-town deputy devises a Bigfoot hoax with his dimwitted sidekick to capture the attention – and the votes – of the townsfolk in a backwater sheriff’s election. Complications abound when the mayor enlists an alluring cryptozoologist to investigate, and hires the hoaxers to guide her.

NM’s Own Riff Raff New Media, headed by Matt Page reaps accolades and acclaim snagging the Judges’ Choice and Audience Favorite awards at NYC’s Iron Mule Comedy Festival earlier this month.
Let us all place palm to palm and bow to “Ameri-Do-Te”. More importantly spread the news of this New Mexico based hit which is open to investors for further development and distribution to reach the masses!
The hit web series centers around a fictional American karate school, in mockumentary style, reminiscent of feature length Christopher Guest greats.
Boasting an all New Mexico cast & crew Dojo stars writer/co-director Matt Page as the too sexy Master Ken, who is the embodiment of all that Napoleon Dynamite’s uncle Rico wishes he could be and the “sweet baby Jesus” loving Ricky Bobby of Talladega nights.
Page and Adam Rottler direct, with music by Kevin MacLeod. The acclaimed cast also includes Alex Knight, Rachel Hroncich, Ben Ziegler, Zach Dulin and Juliet Lopez.
You can Enter the Dojo here to pick-up your series swag and help further the cause! On IndieGoGo and Facebook.

The New Mexico Music Awards – RECOGNIZING EXCELLENCE IN ORIGINAL MUSIC PRODUCTION SINCE 1987:
Beginning in 1987, recording industry professionals including songwriters, recording engineers, working musicians and producers set out to achieve cooperation among recording studios and other industry professionals in order to create a climate of professionalism and artistic excellence within the New Mexico music community.
The result was the New Mexico Music Industry Coalition (NM MIC) and the annual MIC Awards banquet and show celebrating the best of recorded music from New Mexico. This awards program, for original music productions recorded and mixed primarily within the state of New Mexico, recognizes excellence for recorded music produced in the previous calendar year.

New Mexico’s Own Award Winning Series Breaking Bad is kicking-off award season with an early morning phone call for leading man Bryan Cranston with the news that he’s nominated for a Golden Globe for his part in the AMC series!
CONGRATULATIONS BRYAN! The star “represents” including the entire cast and crew upon the news of the Nom, “Thank you to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for this recognition. “Breaking Bad” has been an extraordinary journey and I am honored to represent our amazing cast and crew with this nomination.” CLASS ACT, Golden Globe Nominee, Bryan Cranston said today!
CONGRATULATIONS! MUCHO MAS TO FOLLOW!
“Breaking Bad” star Bryan Cranston should be used to nominations-morning drill by now — but he isn’t.
“I got that ominous phone call at five-something in the morning,” said Cranston. “I’ve been very fortunate to get that phone call often throughout my career and it never fails to scare me momentarily. You think no one ever calls at that hour unless it’s bad news. I know that in the future when I get a phone call to tell me someone’s died, I’m going to answer it like, ‘Really? I was nominated?’ And then it’ll have a very dark turn.” – via Variety
