Today’s NM Film Fix

Posted by on July 31, 2014 | Comments Off

94 Rock Film Fix

Manhattan has wrapped in northern New Mexico, with an impressive series debut nabbing
nearly two million viewers for its Sunday premiere. The NM production, garnering rave reviews, airs on WGN and is available on Hulu Plus. Catch a rebroadcast of premiere tonight at 8 pm on WGN. See the channel locator on Twitter.

Santa Fe is trying to get The Bachelor to film here…$500,000 to shoot city offering $100,000. What are your thoughts?

Meanwhile…The Messengers is CASTING NOW, we’re anxiously awaiting word on Longmire 4 announcement, Saul will be here through at least October and NBC’s The Night Shift will be back…to shoot its second season, set to air next Spring/May 2015.

TWO, count ‘em TWO major cable network television pilots headed to NM (unofficially)!

“Stanistan” is a USA Network Comedy/Drama Pilot which follows the staff at the American Embassy in the Middle Eastern country as State Department workers, covert CIA officers and journalists strike a delicate balance of danger and absurdity.

The AMC Comedy pilot for “We Hate Paul Revere” is set in Boston, focusing on two brothers who are comically anti early American industrialist & Patriot Paul Revere, starring Ethan Sandler and Adrian Wenner.

Sidebar: Actual civil unrest in the middle east has lead production of the USA Network drama, “Dig” starring Jason Isaacs and Anne Heche to relocate to NM from Israel. The show is about the FBI investigating a murder in Jerusalem. – Local casting info. to follow.

OHI is excited to announce that two esteemed locals are on the roster to produce the upcoming indie “Bare”. Chad Burris and Mateo Fraizer are producing along with Alexandra Roxo and Christopher J. Scott. The film, directed by Natalia Leite is about a young girl living in Nevada who starts a complicated relationship with a female drifter who introduces her to a darker world and forces her to grow. “Bare” will star Imogen Poots, Riley Keough, Dianna Agron, Chris Zylka, Paz de la Huerta and Rachel Korine. MUCH more to come on this one!

Bonus bit: Another hot indie wraps this weekend, but not before one of its stars posted plenty of “from the New Mexico set” pics on her Instagram, here’s a little gallery of Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting on location filming “Burning Bodhi” in NM!

The independent feature, “Season of Starlings” will be holding a live stage read of the ghost movie/bloodless horror film, in Madrid New Mexico. Now casting ages 10 -20, for the August 14 read. Awesome experience and resume builder! Here is the casting call!

BONUS CALL: Toska Productions is casting a short film in Albuquerque. Paid/non-union, LGBTQ and/or people of color, get the hotlink here.

This weekend:
Saturday Sen. Al Franken will be holding a street rally 10am – close, on Sierra St. south of Central on Nob Hill. Meet & greet him, with some food & entertainment. No worries – “This is not a fundraiser”.

Saturday AND Sunday THIS charity photoshoot is not to be missed! Amazing multi-purpose photos you can treasure forever and/or use to land your first or next role in a New Mexico production! Andrea takes gorgeous photographs and for a crazy low price you can have 100 pics to fill your portfolio or jump start your headshot gallery! DO IT! AND you’ll be helping out local homeless children with their back-to-school supplies. Cant’ beat that!
