Overland Film Casting Call New Mexico

Overland is the story of Noemi, a young, undocumented immigrant living in the United States. After escaping an ICE raid, Noemi tries to purchase a black-market “documents bundle” so that she can continue to work and send money home to her sick father. The problem? The bundle costs $500. In order to raise the money, Noemi starts working as a “fantasy maid”. Things quickly get out of hand, however, and Noemi must decide what’s more important—her dignity or the money.
Filming will be Feb.19th-22nd in Las Cruces, NM and El Paso, TX. All room and board will be provided for actors.

NOEMI: Must appear to be 25-30. Hispanic, slender/fit. Must be fluent in both Spanish and English. English can be limited, an accent is preferable. Strong personality and very protective of Sophie.

SOPHIE: Must appear to be 16-20. Hispanic, petite. Must be fluent in Spanish (no English dialogue). Being on the run really affects her, so she’s glad that she at least has Noemi.

MARK: Must appear to be 40-45. Caucasian, fit, medium build. Native English speaker, no Spanish. Mark doesn’t feel that he’s in control of his life. He’s having problems in his marriage and he takes out this anger on Noemi.

PABLO: Must appear to be 30-35. Hispanic, medium built, tattoos preferable. Happy demeanor. Must be fluent in Spanish (no English dialogue). Noemi goes to Pablo for a social security card. Pablo wants to help her, but he can’t shift the price. Instead, he offers her a job.

ANNE: Must appear to be 35-40. Caucasian, blonde, tall. (Mark’s wife) Anne is trying to make this rough patch with Mark work. She’s afraid that Mark has become bored with her, so she orders a Fantasy Maid for him to “spice up” the relationship. Native English speaker.

Not since Deney Terrio threw on Joe Picopo’s Dead Heat mullet wig for pickups in the Flashdance finale was there this much hullabaloo over exactly whose’s bits are doing what during an on-screen dance saga.

The Ballerina who stood-in for Natalie Portman for the highly contested, yet to be determined percentage of her dance routines during Black Swan continues to level claims that accounts of Natalie’s dance abilities are greatly exaggerated. Portman’s choreographer/fiancee, director, and co-stars are coming to her defense. WTFC? CNN, really?

Hos and cinema are much more technologically savvy these days. There may very well be better worked, more hard fought battles during post-production that don’t scream at the audience, like the barely computer generated ~graphics work on Kate Bosworth, in the legendary Blue Crush, that they are only barely trying to play magic tricks on our eyes for the price of admission (plus the cost of 3D glasses in some cases).

However, such advances may also be one reason why a scorned woman’s wrath could too be on the rise in its reach and potency.

And whatever the hell is in the craw of this trick Sarah Lane it doesn’t seem like it’s going to stop until God knows what vindication is hers.

Me thinks a certain ballerina really needs to up her daily dosage of surely already high fiber and let classic dances lie (you too J-Lo, oops too late).

All Out War On Film, NM

Posted by on January 12, 2011 | 10 comments
EscándaloFilmGovernmentJobsNMNMExposéYouYour Momma

Click here to reach legislators in your area and voice your opinion on this issue.

Audit this: While Los Angeles scrambles to intice productions back from us, other states Hot on our Boot Heel and yet others stalling like Arizona, Massachusets and Iowa, New Mexico who currently ranks NUMBER ONE in the country for film making and third in ALL OF NORTH AMERICA, is presented with a dangerous proposal from our new leader.

If Dennis the Menace down in Roswell gets his way our tax incentive program will be eliminated all together and if Governor Susana Martinez can’t see that pushed through she’s working the 10% decrease angle. It’s a tumultuous mix of options being thrown into the wind that will blow New Mexico’s promising future as an Entertainment Capital out of here like Silicon Valley.

The numbers can be manipulated to high heaven in favor of decreasing the incentives and with that rot down the hell of disillusionment and hopelessness unto the impassioned and currently employed and empowered people of New Mexico who have fought and worked so hard to see the fruits of the Industry begin to flourish here.

We cannot allow Texas or any other state to turn New Mexico into their cotton picking, chile peeling back lot. There are entire industries riding on this wave of SUCCESS the film industry has just begun to afford New Mexicans.

From Food Service, Lighting, Set Construction & Decorating to of course the stars of the New Mexico desert there are jobs in this here Entertainment Industry.

Not to mention that when that caravan we call Hollywood rolls into to town, they eat, sleep, and SPEND. From Real Estate to $20,000 hotel bills, productions BUY.

Productions also GIVE – give back to the communities that they’re living and working in here. From donations to investments of their time. Productions make improvements to area homes, establishments, and even outdoor spaces where they film. Casts and Crews get out into the community enriching and inspiring civic duty.

And do you know how much air-time costs? Well New Mexico gets global peeps and props that money couldn’t buy because of the big names and productions that come. Whether they fail or fall – we couldn’t have purchased the amount of global recognition we get from the State’s current status as a leader in Film.

…do you think all of these peripherals are being taken into account by any existing audit?

Let’s face it sometimes a production will just NEED a crate of hair spray and a vat of vaseline – ours is not to question why…ours is but to let them BUY.

Spa days, shopping sprees, car service, room service YOUR SERVICE. Let’s keep our doors open for business and let ’em keep pickin-up the check!

Finally, keep it for the kids – We all know that New Mexico Education is in trouble. But, we also know that Film & Production keeps our kids OUT of trouble. From Clovis to Taos and everywhere in between New Mexico is training.

Eastern New Mexico University is currently ramping-up a film program of their very own…

Right here in the Q Youth Development Incorporated teaches and inspires young ones in all aspects of performing and production. Fireborn Films offers intensive training in acting, writing and project development.

New Mexico is COVERED for training a sustainable workforce in Entertainment for generations to come – will there be an industry here for them?

Just a Tabloid Darling?

Posted by on November 26, 2008 | Comments Off on Just a Tabloid Darling?

La Lohan, Lezlo, Bi-Han, Ho-Han or whatever the Tabs are calling her this hot-gossip minute, Actress/Singer is unfortunately-? not what this woman is “famous” for. The rehabbed former child-actress is hounded for her social undertakings and especially some porported slips off the wagon such as the one reported above. Didn’t this person go on an allegedly impaired, rampage in a motor vehicle not too long ago? She better stay straight or risk ending-up like this!
Someone needs to order this woman to a eyes-wide-open viewing of the 2000 film Requiem for a Dream. She’s (been) “in the industry” right? She should appreciate and be able to absorb cinematic content right?
As parental reference as well – this flick should scare a kid straight, no?
