French Music Video Casting in NM

Posted by on January 14, 2014 | Comments Off

French Music Video Shoot New Mexico

A french music video featuring one of the more popular singers of the day in France is set to shoot in New Mexico. The production is currently seeking an elderly man or woman to play the role of a Shaman in the video.

Prospects need to have a very aged look but with youthful eyes and demeanor – still energetic, lively sparkle in the eyes (reference photos below).

The scene involves the shaman capturing 3 young men that are trouble makers, tying them to a post, and throwing yellow powder on them as she recites a spell. The 3 mischievous men however are able to get loose and runaway before she can cast her spell, and then they end up in the next misadventure. It’s a tongue and cheek spoof of the western genre.

Shoot date will be either January 26 or 27. Pay is $200 for an estimated a half day’s work. If cast out of Las Cruces or El Paso accommodations provided. Meals paid and fuel costs reimbursed if coming in from any long distance.

If you or somebody you know fits this and are interested please send a recent photo to robertbaxtercasting[at]gmail.com

Strings for a CURE: Where the Arts meet Humanities

Posted by on January 30, 2013 | 2 comments

McGarvey-participates-in-StringsforaCurePerformance image via RyanMcGarvey.com

New Mexico’s own resident Guitar God, Ryan McGarvey has teamed with the innovative, life-enriching organization StringsforaCURE™, saying:

“I’m so incredibly honored to work with this organization, and to help for such a worthy cause. Please take a look at the great pieces of jewelry that they were able to make from my guitar strings. All proceeds go to help those with breast cancer.”

Elisa Guida, a two-time breast cancer survivor and jewelry designer, transforms guitar strings into one-of-a-kind bracelets, earrings, pendants and rings. Net proceeds are used to fund the foundation’s efforts to educate, comfort and support cancer patients. The foundation focuses primarily on helping those with breast cancer.

The StringsforaCURE™ Foundation helps women and men diagnosed with cancer, primarily breast. Our mission is to provide education, comfort and support to cancer patients, focusing on the breast cancer patient. We help the patient directly by providing gas, grocery or pharmacy gift cards. We also provide educational materials, comfort baskets and medical grants. We want to ease the burden during their cancer journey. We raise awareness on how important nutrition and wellness plays a part in the recovery of the cancer patient.

National and international musicians donate their used guitar strings to StringsforaCURE™, and I transform them into one-of-a-kind bracelets, earrings, pendants and rings. We also raise funds through our online Virtual Quilt, our Pennies2Patients Program and Pickin’ On Cancer fundraiser and also through private donations.

My dream is to recruit many nationally known musicians – including Eric Clapton, Sheryl Crow, Paul McCartney and Bruce Springsteen, among many others – to donate their strings to the foundation. We have received strings from several famous musicians, such as Jon Bon Jovi, Melissa Etheridge, Paul Rodgers, Joe Bonamassa to mention a few. -Elisa Guida, Executive Director

The StringsforaCURE foundation is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization, and a Green Foundation. Their jewelry is made in the U.S.A. with net proceeds used to fund the foundation’s efforts to educate, comfort and support cancer patients.

NM Filmmakers and Musicians in “Changing the World”

Posted by on September 24, 2012 | Comments Off

New Mexico Philharmonic Brings PULSE Performance to the KiMo:

ALBUQUERQUE, NM, August 1, 2012—Last year the New Mexico Philharmonic presented an avant garde program at the KiMo Theatre that featured electronic music and innovative film. This year,the PULSE concert is bringing an important question to the forefront: How would you change the world?

The answer came in the unusual form of New Mexico-produced documentaries with music from a New Mexico composer performed and produced by New Mexicans that truly touch the heart.

This amazing and unique collaboration comes to life on Sunday, September 30th at 4 p.m. in the most New Mexican of places, the historic KiMo Theatre with stories that highlight global issues and combine a magical performance by the New Mexico Philharmonic with the viewing of incredible scenes from two documentary films.

The issues covered include homeless children and solutions to the homeless issue in the Emmy® Award winning Documentary “LOOKING IN: Children Who are Homeless.” One of the solutions to global warming/climate change is the focus of the national PBS documentary, “The First Millimeter: Healing the Earth.”

The musical score to each of these programs was composed by New Mexico musician Jeffrey R. Jolly. The documentaries were produced and directed by New Mexican Chris Schueler. In, addition, for each of the films vocalists—a children’s choir for “Healing the Earth,” and the New Hope Full Gospel Baptist Church Choir for “Looking In”—will bring stirring performances that enhance the auditory experience.

A group of talented teachers and students from the Albuquerque Studios Film & Technology Academy of the Atrisco Heritage Academy High School as well as from DATA Charter High School will compile a video project that will be screened to the music of Albuquerque composer Daniel Davis.

Don’t miss this inspirational program created by New Mexicans for New Mexicans that will move you in new and surprising ways.

If purchased prior to September 1st, adult tickets are $24 and $16. On September 1st they will be $30 and $20. Student tickets (available only at the KiMo ticket offfice) are $10. Ticket information is available online at www.nmphil.org. Call 505-323-4343 to reserve your ticket now.

As the major professional orchestra in the state, the New Mexico Philharmonic is committed to inspiring audiences of all ages and backgrounds through its artistic excellence, innovative programming and educational and community engagement.

QOTD: Bruckheimer on Depp, Depp on Tonto…

Posted by on April 30, 2012 | 2 comments

…Nose on, shirt off Tonto, annnnnnnd the Ranger dons his silver during the recent Monument Valley, Utah portion of The Lone Ranger production.

The star and the super-producer then headed off to Cinemacon where they laid out the following regarding their upcoming cinematic rendition of the long lored Ranger and Tonto:

“We always take a different approach to things and this is a different approach. Putting Johny Depp as Tonto, isn’t a trusted sidekick… he’s more of a spiritual character.” –Jerry Bruckheimer

“It is sort of a rock-n-roll version of The Lone Ranger. It is fast paced, high velocity and it’s quite funny.” –Johnny Depp

Meanwhile, Slash is due in the Q, where filming rolls on and on, on TLR. Wonder if Johnny will hit the stage with him like he did w/Manson in recent weeks…

Miscelleneous Fact of the Day: NM Strings & Aerophone Edition

Posted by on February 25, 2012 | Comments Off

That’s Albuquerque native (and St. Pius X alum) Sean Kelly accordioning & strumming on the late 1990s hit “Kiss Me” with Sixpence None the Richer.

The song was featured on the teen drama series Dawson’s Creek, the movie She’s All That and played during the worldwide telecast of the wedding of England’s Prince Edward in 1999.

Bonus Strings: Is that Albuquerque born Freddie Prinze Jr.? And that’s Rachael Leigh Cook (stars of She’s All That)…who was just here for her first ABQ Comic Con.

Foos in Space – New Mexico Style

Posted by on February 17, 2012 | Comments Off

In a quest to push American music beyond the stratosphere, the Foo Fighters have announced their intentions to record their next album in outer space!

Why not? Their fans and the Grammys were “over the moon” (forgive me M.K) for the back to basics garage band recording methods on their most recent album…

As you and the whole wide world ought to know, there’s only one way to launch the Foos into space and that means first stop, NEW MEXICO baby!

Yes, the one and only commercial spaceport on the planet calls The Land of Enchantment home. So, in addition to the Foo ties that bind our great state to the band, their galactic transit aspirations would bring them our way again!

NM’s Own JDS Stalled Super Bowl Bid

Posted by on January 30, 2012 | Comments Off

Say it ain’t so Joe Jim James! In the name of dashed sports dreams everywhere, the good sportsmanship of Albuquerque’s favorite band is being put to the test.

Last month, beloved Albuquerque band The James Douglas Show was asked to perform at Jim McMahon’s Swang N’ Super Bowl Charity Bash 2012 on February 2nd in Indianapolis, the home of the Super Bowl. This high-profile celebrity event is a charity concert benefiting The Lynda McMahon Ferguson Literacy Foundation and Hope for the Warriors.

The JDS is honored to be invited. Check them out here on the list of headliners…

HOWEVER last week, their travel sponsor backed out – now band, bus and gear are all sidelined and they need our help!

A word from The Jame Douglas Show:

“…we do not have the funds necessary to make it to this show…and it is a BIG show. Most of the other performers on this bill have support from record labels to pay their expenses…that is not the case for The JDS. Most (if not ALL) of our travel expenses have come out of our own pocket from performances we do. However, traveling to and from Indianapolis would cost FAR more than what this organization can afford on its own…especially since we just returned from a two-week run of Nevada and California [dates].”

ALBUQUERQUE, NM – YOUR 6 Time Grammy Nominees, The James Douglas Show who have stepped up to the plate so many times right here in NM, performing countless free shows, donating their time to charity, playing backup for anyone who asks, always willing to lend their help to anyone in the business, who constantly hit the road and the airwaves making a good name for New Mexico all over the country will be performing LIVE TOMORROW night!!!

The James Douglas “Road to the Super Bowl Fund Raising” Show
Hooligans Nightclub
9800 Montgomery NE
7:00 p.m. – 12:30 a.m.
Just $10

Come out and have a good time with us, and with your helpful generosity, we just might be able to make this happen.

If you can’t make it to this show, but would still like to donate to the trip, contact The James Douglas Show’s management at THEARKITEKS@aol.com.
