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.

#NMFilm The Righteous and the Wicked

Posted by on November 10, 2011 | Comments Off on #NMFilm The Righteous and the Wicked

Written and directed by Albuquerque native Craig Butler (Land of Entrapment, Duke City Nights), ultra low-budget western, The Righteous and the Wicked was shot right here in New Mexico during the summer of 2009.

Earlier this year the homegrown production was picked-up for nationwide distribution by Lionsgate and will be released on DVD November 15th. It will also be available on Amazon, Netflix, and more outlets to come.

In commemoration of the release and distribution of the film, the historic KiMo Theatre in downtown Albuquerque will host a free screening on December 2.

Writer/Director Craig Butler, members of the cast & crew will be on hand for introductions and a short Q&A. Doors open at 7 p.m., entrance is free and the DVD will be available for sale.

I did take advantage of the film incentive tax rebates and received great support from the state during the whole process. Despite the discouraging stories we’re hearing like losing Iron Man 3 to North Carolina, I still think there’s tons of potential here for making our own opportunities. I for one plan to keep making features here no matter what happens.
– Craig Butler on the state of NM Film

Watch the Lionsgate trailer here.

Synopsis: The Righteous and The Wicked is a blending of two classic movie genres: the Western and the heist film. It turns the Western convention of a lone gunman facing off with a gang of bad guys on its head by following the planning, execution, and consequences of the heist from the gang’s point of view. One-time cattle rustler and bandit Hoss Williams is getting too old for his life of crime and he knows it. His new gang has six members, each with a specific role to play in his final heist. Everything seems to be going according to plan, until one of them starts playing by his own rules.
