Rev. Canon Albert Ogle of San Diego’s St. Paul’s Cathedral 4 the City tells SDGLN.com that, “The film will go into countries in Africa and to Jamaica, where LGBT people are being persecuted and murdered, and this film is designed to counteract that with love and understanding; inclusion, not exclusion.”

Las Cruces is film friendly and cooperation abounds at all levels. Boasting and experienced and capable pool of crew, talent, and services available in southern New Mexico, not to mention spectacular year-round weather and breath taking sunsets.

The Las Cruces Film Commission is actively working to get funding for a back lot and sound stage in the area for feature film and television projects.

Las Cruces is home to two award winning film schools, CMT of Dona Ana Community College and CMI of NMSU. In addition there is a monthly film Las Cruces meeting for anyone and everyone involved or interested in film.

Documentary film maker Mark Wark has recently been named the new Film Liaison for the Las Cruces film commission.

Here you go New Mexico: MTV Now Casting Season 28 of The Real Word

Posted by on April 13, 2012 | Comments Off on Here you go New Mexico: MTV Now Casting Season 28 of The Real Word

“The Real World” still exists and they’ll be casting the 28th installment right here in Nuevo México.

Our beloved Las Cruces Sun News Reports:

LAS CRUCES — Casting directors from Bunim/Murray Productions, creators of the perennial hit MTV show “The Real World,” will hold an open casting call from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. April 25 at The Game Sports Bar & Grill, 2605 S. Espina St.

The directors are looking to cast the 28th season of “The Real Wold,” the longest running reality series on television.

“We look for characters from real life; people with strong personalities who are unafraid to speak their minds,” said Jonathan Murray, executive producer of “The Real World.”

Casting directors will be on the lookout for applicants who have challenges living an everyday life that most take for granted, struggling with weight issues, affected by a natural disaster, products of home or alternative schooling, followers of unrecognized or non-mainstream belief systems, elite athletes, recent graduates affected by the economic downturn, those involved with goth, emo, or punk subculture, members of a pro-abstinence organization, those who are recently single due to a tragedy, someone who has recently gotten out of the foster care system, and individuals who want to bring the spotlight of “The Real World” to a cause, condition, or social issue they care deeply about or are personally affected by. According to a news release, these qualities are not a requirement.

Applicants are asked to bring a recent picture of themselves (which will not be returned) and photo identification. Applicants must be 21 years or older by March 1, 2013, and appear to be between the ages of 20 and 24.

For those who can’t make it to the open call, applications are still being accepted via email. Visit bunim-murray.com/rwcasting for complete casting details.
