Posted by on April 30, 2014 | Comments Off on Vocal competition show, “The Producer” to film in New Mexico

singing competition in Albuquerque New Mexico

New talent search series to shoot full 13 episode season in Albuquerque this summer.

“The Producer” will invite New Mexican vocal talents to compete for the chance to be given a recording deal with Producer Jean Michel Soupraya and signed to the Management team of Phil Shapiro who is famously known for representing the Jackson Family including Michael and Corey Feldman.

Corine Lewis of Life Beyond the League and Making the Cheerleader will host this contest of vocal talents. Talents from around the state who may have been over looked by larger casting calls due to the sheer volume of contestants might have slipped through the cracks. Jean Michel wants to discover the hidden gem in the heart of small town New Mexico.

Contestants will submit online auditions as well as make live appearances to meet and perform for Corine Lewis and Jean Michel with the top 20 best vocalist in the state being chosen to move through the coaching portion of the TV show. Jean Michel will take each of these top 20 and take them under his wing to learn the ins and outs of not just singing, but self promotion, live performances, and the business of selling tickets and albums. The finalist will perform live in front of New Mexico fans and the final winner will be taken to LA to record a full length album.

This contest is only for New Mexico vocalists, and will be shot entirely in the state of New Mexico.

A JM West Creation, Produced by: UPublic TV and Corine Lewis Enterprises in conjunction with 6 Guns Production Services. A Jim Burleson Production.

ABC star cast as lead in New Mexico Film

Posted by on March 27, 2014 | Comments Off on ABC star cast as lead in New Mexico Film

New Mexico Film Outlaw Prophet starring Tony Goldwyn

The man who will forever be the bad guy from Ghost, turned mega star portraying a Commander in Chief on ABC’s mega hit series, Scandal is New Mexico bound.

Actor Tony Goldwyn is set to portray the icky, disgusting scourge, Mormon Polygamist Warren Jeffs in the upcoming Lifetime television movie, Outlaw Prophet. Yuck. But hey, the truth or something like it, must be told through film. Look at this year’s Academy Award winner for best picture, 12 Years a Slave.

Subject matter aside, production on the movie based on the New York Times best-selling book, When Men Become Gods will begin in northern New Mexico next month.

The movie is said to detail the rise to “leadership” by Jeffs and the eventual outlaw status he amassed before being taken down by Federal Agents. One can hope that the script will also address the harrowing bravery of the women who fought back against this beast.
