NMFilm Abe Makes a Movie by Ryan Turri Matt Peterson

Sag, Aftra & Non Union Feature Film, Casting Call May 20th, 2013

The comedy, “Abe Makes A Movie” is currently casting lead roles in this funny film about an underachieving want-to-be filmmaker who assembles a ragtag crew of misfits to help make a movie and enter it into a local film festival in hopes of winning his ex girlfriend back. Starring Matt Peterson (The Bigfoot Election).

This will be a Sag Ultra-Low Budget film shooting early to late fall 2013 in Albuquerque, NM.

Producer/Director: Ryan Turri
Written by: Matt Peterson and Ryan Turri

Please respond to abesmovie@gmail.com

Roles
Sarah
Female 20-35, caucasian
Abe’s long time best friend. Dry sense of humor and witty. Sweet. Smart. Thinks Abe is great. Almost like a sister to Abe.

Jethro
Male 50-70, Caucasian
Pyrotechnics guy. Gruff on the outside but very like-able once you get to know him. Served in the reserves and never saw any action, though he would lead you to believe otherwise. Jack of all trades, master of none. Loyal follower of Abe. Big hearted.

Marla
Female 60-80, Caucasian
Old starlet. Been in 135 movies, but never starred in a single one. Worldly seasoned. Has had several marriages and one daughter. Single now, and lives in the moment. Spent some time in Toas “finding herself” through the guidance of a guru.

Carl
Male 50-68 Caucasian
Abe’s stepfather. Classic American-old school dad who believes in hard work and earning an honest dollar… but plays the lottery religiously. A constant skeptic. Hard on Abe. Believes his way is the right way. Likes to prove his point to anyone who will listen. Doesn’t trust anyone who isn’t American or American made. Grew up in a small town, had his aspirations crushed early in life, gave up on his bowling career and settled for a 9-5 job spending his lunch hour talking sports and how once he was a big deal.

Dirk
Male 25-37 Caucasian
Napoleon complex. Swarmy. Sarcastic. Classic Bro. Uses the term “Bro” and “Brah” and “YOLO”. Thinks he’s hot shit. Classic wannabe filmmaker, wears the right filmmaker clothes, knows the right filmmaking terms and tells everyone about it. Won the 168 hour film festival the previous year. Creates his own handshakes.

“Buffalo in the Room” Casting Call, NM

Posted by on March 27, 2013 | Comments Off

Buffalo in the Room Series Casting Native Americans

Buffalo in the Room is a comedy series project featuring Native Americans.

Two non-union open casting calls for several roles in Buffalo in the Room will be held, on April 5th and April 6th, 2013. Auditions are open to anyone interested in acting. Experience is not required. Actors outside of New Mexico who cannot make it to the auditions can email (below) to submit a video audition.

Santa Fe: April 5th, 2013 at The Lodge in Santa Fe, NM from noon to 4 pm

Albuquerque: April 6th, 2013 at Nativo Lodge in Albuquerque, NM from noon to 4 pm

Buffalo in the Room is a series sitcom with an expected run of 15 episodes, that primarily features Native Americans and the often comedic expectations and stereotypes when dealing with the entertainment industry.

Shooting will begin in mid-late April in New Mexico. The pilot is being pitched to broadcast TV networks, and will initially commence as a web series.

Executive producer Brian Vallie created and co-wrote Buffalo in the Room along with Brian Young, a Yale graduate filmmaker and actor for a predominantly Native cast and crew. Vallie worked as a talent agent for New Mexico’s biggest talent agency while in college which
prompted writing Buffalo in the Room. Vallie wanted to see more Native productions with comedy, so he wrote a lighthearted comedy sitcom based on actual characters and events.

The series will be directed by Allistair McCray who has been involved in the film industry for many years. “I’m excited to be working with Native writers and cast. I believe there are undiscovered talent out there and we want to give them a chance. Buffalo in the Room is a production that can give them that chance, both cast and crew,” said director and producer, Allistair McCray.

Most roles require Native ethnicity, but there will also be several other roles requiring nonnatives.

Go to facebook.com/buffalointheroom for list of the main cast and visit www.buffalointheroom.com for more information.

Contact Brian Vallie for specifics, questions, or interviews at 505-917-9509, or email info@buffalointheroom.com.

AP: ’Veronica Mars’ campaign rattles movie industry

Posted by on March 25, 2013 | Comments Off

Veronica-Mars-Movie-Kickstarter-Dangerous-Precedent

Posted at: 03/23/2013 2:12 PM
By JAKE COYLE

(AP) NEW YORK – After years of hope, stalled efforts and studio frustration, “Veronica Mars” creator Rob Thomas watched a long-held dream come to fruition in a sudden digital rush.

“There were a few minutes of nothing happening,” he says. “Then in an hour, watching that ticker go was mesmerizing. I had an attention span of, like, four seconds because everything on my computer screen I wanted to look at at the same time. The Twitter feed was going crazy, the emails were going crazy and then watching that Kickstarter total go up.”

Thomas last week launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund a movie of his cult TV show, which was canceled after three seasons in 2007. It met its stated goal of raising $2 million in less than 11 hours, meaning it would be greenlit to begin shooting this summer. It’s surpassed $3.7 million with more than two weeks still to go.

The resounding, immediate success of the crowd-funding campaign sent shockwaves through the movie business. Films had found much-needed financial support on Kickstarter before, but “Veronica Mars” is different. It’s a studio project, owned by Warner Bros., which produced the show.

The money given by the fervent fans of “Veronica Mars,” which starred Kristen Bell as a teenage private eye, will go not to a filmmaker operating on his own, but one with the distribution and marketing muscle of a very large corporation _ just one that hadn’t previously been convinced to bankroll a “Veronica Mars” film.

Were donating fans spurring a goliath to action, or its unwitting pawns?

The wide majority of “Veronica Mars” fans couldn’t care less. They will get the movie they craved, as well as the proud feeling of having played an essential role in the show’s resurrection. Maryland fan Matt Clipp typified the eager contributors, writing: “I am MORE than happy to donate $100 to this project. This movie has been a dream of mine ever since the series ended back in 2007. … LET’S GET THIS THING MADE, `VERONICA MARS’ FANS!”

While the emotional side is surely the biggest motivation for most donors, they’re also paying for tangible goods. Rewards range from an emailed copy of the script ($10 contributions), all the way up to a speaking part in the film as a waiter who says, “Your check, sir,” (a single $10,000 donation). All money is refunded if for any reason the film doesn’t get made.

“Most of the people who are pledging are getting in at the $35 and $50 range where they’re getting a download of the movie, a T-shirt, a copy of the script at $35, and all of that plus the DVD and the making-of documentary at the $50 price point,” says Thomas. “So I don’t think anyone’s being taken advantage of. I feel like the rewards are worth it.”

Typically in film financing, any investor has the chance to earn his money back and potentially share in the profits. Slate claimed the “Veronica Mars” project sets a “terrible precedent.”

Joss Whedon, whose devoted fanboy following is similar, if larger, than Thomas’, said that he reacted in “unfettered joy” at the “Veronica Mars” Kickstarter campaign. But Whedon, who realizes he’ll now be hounded to follow suit with another movie of his canceled cult TV series “Firefly,” acknowledged some trepidation about the financial arrangement for fans.

“I understand that it feels not as pure, and that the presence of a studio makes it disingenuous somehow,” Whedon told BuzzFeed. “But people clearly understood what was happening and just wanted to see more of the thing they love. To give them that opportunity doesn’t feel wrong. If it was a truly wrong move, I don’t think it would have worked.”

Thomas says he’s been in daily contact with Warner Bros., which approved the plan in advance. The studio hasn’t sought to flaunt its involvement. Executives for its digital wing, which is planning a limited theatrical release followed by video-on-demand early next year, declined to comment.

Kickstarter co-founder Yancey Strickler, too, declined to comment when asked through a spokesman about whether corporate involvement compromises Kickstarter’s mission. Kickstarter takes a 5 percent fee from money raised for successful projects.

Since being founded in 2009, Kickstarter has raised more than $500 million for some 35,000 creative projects. The “Veronica Mars” film is far and away its most lucrative movie project.

Earlier this year, the documentary short film “Inocente” became the first Kickstarter-backed Oscar-winner, having raised about $52,000 on the platform. Kickstarter has drawn several big Hollywood names, including David Fincher (a producer of an animated project that raised more than $440,000) and Charlie Kaufman (whose short animated film “Anomalisa” brought in $406,000).

Some have derided Kickstarter’s growing influence (Gawker lamented its “online panhandling”), but few would argue it’s been a positive force for getting dozens of films made in an industry landscape that can be brutal for independent filmmakers.

Thomas admits some of the talk of the “revolutionary” impact of the “Veronica Mars” Kickstarter campaign has been “an overreach,” but he hopes it leads to more low-budget films finding their way in the world.

“I don’t know that I would bet that a Kickstarter model starts to work across the board and that everyone who wants to make a $3, 4, 5 million movie can expect to go to Kickstarter and get financed,” he said. “When there is a brand name product that people have responded to and want to see and there’s already a built in following for it, people can be very successful. I hope that in that respect we are pioneers and we see more of them.”

Many are already seeing new potential to capitalize on small but dedicated fan support. (On the CW, “Veronica Mars” averaged less than 2.5 million viewers.) Shawn Ryan, whose FX drama “Terriers” was canceled in 2010 after one season, tweeted that he was “very interested” in the “Veronica Mars” Kickstarter campaign. “Could be a model for a `Terriers’ wrap up film,” he said.

Thomas also co-created another canceled show _ the Starz cult comedy “Party Down” _ that may be reborn as a film. He’s still hopeful that will happen, but says funding is already lining up more traditionally.

In the meantime, he’s hoping the Kickstarter contributions keep coming. More money means being able to shoot in Southern California (where the show was set) and gradual boosts in production value. The screenplay, of which he has 37 pages written, features a 10-year high school reunion for Mars’ Neptune High _ a gathering that will include inevitable strife.

“In the barebones version, angry words would have been exchanged,” says Thomas. “We’re now starting to look comfortable enough to say there will be a brawl.”

It already promises to be a different kind of filmmaking experience. He’ll have 100-plus Kickstarter contributors to use as extras. A documentary on the making of the movie has begun tracking Thomas with cameras. And the production schedule has been built to include two days purely for Thomas, Bell and others to sign the thousands of movie posters and other items they’ve promised their Kickstarter backers.

Leading Man Wanted 2/24/13:

With the incredible base of talent, expanse of land, abundance of top facilities, and hard working film industry officials always hard at work striking deals and building YOUR film industry from the inside out, more and more productions are rolling into the Land of Enchantment!

When the hits keep coming, some hard knocks are bound to follow…as we here at OHI strive to bring you the latest news, whispers in the wind, and underground radar blips about what’s coming and going on in New Mexico Film, sometimes we have to retract.

Every prospective project is exciting to hear about and report on, but winning some always comes with losing some, like in the case of the big fat covered wagon, handbrake being put on the hugely exciting prospect of an NM/Adam Sandler production, The Ridiculous 6.

Today we’ve learned that pre-production on one of the major motion pictures getting set to shoot here in New Mexico has been pushed out at least a few weeks because scheduling conflicts have hijacked the highly anticipated participation of its leading man…

Now, we’re not a liberty to say which pic it is which still has a firm grasp on its lovely leading lady, but suddenly a vacancy in the gorgeous leading man department – however, know that it will make a buzz on the web when it’s confirmed that this repeat NMFilmer is out, and everyone will be waiting to see who will step in to fill his boots.

Stay tuned

6603-Crack-of-DuskPhotograph by JR Compton

Casting for HD Student Short Film “Four hand Bloodstock”, to shoot in Angel Fire, New Mexico.

Production is scheduled for March 05 – 12, 2013

Producer: Mystie Pineda
Writer: Greg Stout
Director: Greg Stout

Synopsis: Four Hand Bloodstock is a landscape film about Sam, who while dealing with the declining health of his wife, June, interacts with the landscape of New Mexico.

Four Hand Bloodstock plays with the themes of time and space through experimental camera work and sound design to express the transitioning moods of the couples’ experience with June’s awaited journey to death. Four Hand Bloodstock makes the landscape a character within the film, giving time and space a story just as much as the characters themselves.

The tone is tranquil with moments of depression and panic. The film has elements that include the history of the New Mexican landscape, the Tigua Indians and Pueblos.

Character Breakdowns:

Sam (early 30s) – is fearful of loosing his wife to a rare bacterial disease. Sam leaves their cabin home to travel across the New Mexican landscape, accompanied by visions of his wife. Sam eventually arrives at a Native American pueblo and performs a death ceremony.

June (early 30s) – has been diagnosed with a rare bacterial infection and as her condition worsens, June becomes more fearful. Her once optimistic views of life are dissolving more quickly than her health.

These are PAID roles in addition to Film Credit, DVD Copy, Meals, Snacks, Beverages and Transportation Provided.

***Email Your Casting Submissions to: fourhandthefilm@gmail.com***

Auditions will be held between 2pm and 8pm on Friday January 25th, 2012 in Studio 4E of the CMB Building on the University of Texas at Austin Campus.
