New Mexico Film & Media Day Open Call and Call to Action

Posted by on February 3, 2014 | Comments Off

FMD BB Call FB

New Mexico Film & Media Day is just one week from today.

It is in those halls and at these events where the future of film legislation, economic development and film job talks take shape – GET INTO IT!

If you don’t remember the “Breaking Bad Bill” and how it impacts New Mexico productions here is a refresher.

New Mexico Film Champions never say die in fight to gain more productions.

Persevering efforts such as the support and passage of that bill are what keep the state’s film industry alive and healthy. Production benefits, amazing facilities and unparallelled talent & crew base are what continue to build New Mexico back up to its full potential as a global hot spot for film and media.

As soon as news of the “Breaking Bad Bill” flooded the nation’s industry wire, the local industry enjoyed an uptick of projects going from “pending” to a “go”, with series pilots and series runs such as “The Night Shift” and “Killer Women” putting New Mexicans back to work. More series and films are headed down the pike.

So let’s get ready and get behind the business of more business for New Mexico. #NMFilm support means more private sector jobs & industry growth!

Film & Media Day Open Casting Call for UPCOMING 2014 NEW MEXICO FILM PROJECTS INCLUDES – BUT IS NOT LIMITED TO: Longmire Season 3, Hieroglyph, Good Kill, The Manhattan Project…scheduled as follows!

WHAT:
FILM AND MEDIA DAY CASTING CALL

Posted by on December 8, 2012 | Comments Off

Double, double toil and trouble, an actor’s journey is never overnight.

MELISSA BENOIST – As a teen, Benoist performed anonymously at Disneyland for three summers with the Academy of Theatre Arts run by Paul Dwyer and Alann Worley in Littleton. Local theater audiences watched Benoist grow up on area stages starring in productions like “Cinderella” and “Bye Bye Birdie” at Town Hall Arts Center, and as Peron’s young mistress the Country Dinner Playhouse’s final production, “Evita.” In 2006, The Denver Post named Benoist one of Colorado’s five “Can’t Miss Kids.”

Fast-forward to her first day on the “Glee” set, when was reduced to fangirl sitting 10 feet away from Matthew Morrison, who plays teacher Will Schuester. “I just kept staring at him, saying to myself, ‘Is this my life?’ ” she said. “I saw him on Broadway in ‘A Light in the Piazza.’ Seeing him right there in front of me was surreal.”
