As we told you here Albuquerque’s own Willow Shields is making national, nay world news as the young talent who has been cast as Primrose Everdeen in the highly anticipated big screen adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ bestseller The Hunger Games.

OHI fave Jack Justice Brown is also making news that swells our hearts with joy, as the Albuquerque native too is cast in a rabid fan followed, bestselling novel adaptation – Odd Thomas is currently in production locally and NM’s beloved Jack Justice has landed the role of young Odd.

Both young actors were recently featured in the NM production of the Hallmark Hall of Fame original movie Beyond the Blackboard as premiered Easter Sunday on CBS – find it to see many of NM’s Own!

Major congratulations to these two New Mexicans for making great strides in their field and being true artists that we can all be proud of!

Uno Voz mas Magnífico

Posted by on October 16, 2010 | One comment

From the sexiest lady voice around (previous post, duh), with her hair and heart of gold to another coveted voice coming at you from intros to pitches and everywhere in-between…

You know that guy on PBS who narrates errything from The American Experience to the Dos Equis: The Most Interesting Man in the World commercials or the late great movie trailer announcer Don LaFontaine…well forget them – NM’s own voice of the ages can be yours!

Take it light & easy over ice cream cake and pizza parties. Higher, faster and louder for an event whose purposes may escape you yet you’re still SUPER excited to go to it! Or for the more audibly titillated set he can just speak his speak – that Barry White meets what the cover of a romance novel would sound like if it could talk…click here for audio.

In what some (me) would dub one of the most erroneous and heinous moves in NM audio landscape history (just one of them, in the past several years) Jaimey B. has been long off the radio waves of our hearts, but he’s kickin’ it and stealing away with ears aplenty laying down incredible sounds for all your commercial, announcement, documentary and narration needs.

To achieve the oration of your dreams follow these links to El Voz Magnífico: Main, 123, FB, Voices

NM’s Own Marvel

Posted by on June 4, 2010 | Comments Off on NM’s Own Marvel

He doesn’t even have a head shot and since it’s so easy to find your talent online Cal may go undiscovered {gasp}.

Like the old-timey stories of a beautiful starlet getting discovered at a Malt Shop on Hollywood & Vine…so we found “Ready Set Cal”!

Just adjacent to the gates of Cyberdyne, in an irony of ironies there was Cal working behind the camera?!?! AND supporting that sweet smile you see above, KA-BOOM! Cal could step right into buff superhero or villian boots – no muscle suit required!

That brilliant smile, gently ‘giant’ personality and of course the KA-BOOM are why I’ve personally dubbed Cal not only camera ready but set ready, a.k.a. “Ready Set CAL”!

At the very least NM’s Own Marvel silhouette can easily step-in to stand-in for Dwayne “Hombre” Johnson on his upcoming NM shoot.

Find Cal on Facebook if your set is ready!

Our Picture of the Day: NM’s Own Edition

Posted by on May 16, 2010 | 2 comments

UPDATE 090410: Erik has really been workin’ it NM style. As the list of NM productions continues to grow so does his resume. Basically he’s kicking butt, taking names and has managed to pick-up one of NM’s most highly sought after numbers!

New Mexico Actor Erik Alfonse Hausmanis (a.k.a. EMoney) is our latest pick of the litter from the ever expanding NM talent pool.

Hausmanis strikes a riveting Jean Claudeesque pose, only new and improved and contemporary. You may have caught a glimpse of Eriks in the recent NM big screen production Did You Hear About the Morgans?, he’s also worked on the upcoming films The Loop and Let Me In.

You can get the Kalamazoo, MI transplant for your NM film and television projects through his agent Vince Pulli, A & M Agency. Follow the budding NM star on Twitter here.

NM’s Own KRQE Situation

Posted by on April 23, 2010 | 2 comments

KRQE Mornings et al have captured my attention with their various teasers leading up to the eventual unveiling their brand new studio. But more than that thanks to Jay Leno’s perpetual un-funniness and my affinity for East Coast wit I’ve been falling asleep on the #3 CBS with Dave Letterman (after KASA Fox 2 news and TMZ of course), which has led to some early mornings with Deanna and Mike.

Mike’s voice and delivery are downright hypnotic, and as I stare at him I realize that he’s the calmer, newsie version of the seductively intense Alec Baldwin. Both Mike and Deanna seem even clearer than usual too, maybe their temporary mouse-hole diggs are equipped with better cameras. AnysupermagnifiedHD, they are like 3X life size and clear as day.

Which has brought about a new found appreciation for Deanna’s saucey Paula Abdul look, and though I have never seen her abs, those enviable eyebrows definitely garner a NM’s Own Situation award.

and p.s. it’s nice that KRQE Mornings and the CBS Morn’ Show don’t have a damn ticker at the bottom of the screen distracting my ADD***!

NM’s Own: She’s Got the Look

Posted by on December 30, 2009 | Comments Off on NM’s Own: She’s Got the Look

The New Mexico production, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen racked-up righteous box office numbers, made it into the Guinnes Book of World Records and has now been named the best action film of the year.

In the same poll conducted by Movie Fone dot com, the perpetually Nuevo México filming Megan Fox ranks as both the sexiest and the worst actress of 2009.

Our final pick of the year to run head to head with Old Hollywood players is this authentic New Mexican, Ms. Meghan Lowery has got the ~name and certainly got the look!

We hope that she and our other NM’s Own of ’09 get their fair share of our New Hollywood status in the New Year!

Soon you can vote on your fave NM big screen stars of ’09 in ©Sindication’s first annual Golden Tumbleweed Awards.

NM’s Own Quentin Tarantino

Posted by on September 15, 2009 | Comments Off on NM’s Own Quentin Tarantino

Danno Akins Version

From the plains of Artesia, New Mexico student film director Sarah Smith and producer James Airhart bring us Ruralbia. It’s a great little film with echos of an Oliver Stone or Quentin Tarantino esoteric satire.

The original music by Danno Akins and DJ Meinehein, special effects, narration and striking visuals deliver a tight message in an entertaining package.

Res Q Clip

Behold the explosion scene from NM’s Rogue Taurus Productions 2009 48 Hour Film Festival submission Res Q.

Directed by Paul J Porter, written by Hayley Derryberry and
Morgan Estill, explosives by Brian Reece. Cast includes Nicole Gramlich – sexy mohawk girl, hostage girl – Hayley Derryberry, man with swords – Mark Furini. Full list of film credits here.

The star of this scene is Steven Ray Byrd. We’re fans of Byrd here because he’s serious about his craft. Steven and his family moved to New Mexico to pursue his acting career. This is the kind of dedication New Hollywood New Mexico should always aspire to inspire.

Below is a student short produced locally by eKmOHzproductions via eura1990:

The industry is here. Are you on board or out to lunch? If we don’t take up the reigns and do-it-up well, MI, WY, AL, LA, NC, MA, OH, Canada, on and on…are hot on our boot heel.

New Hollywood, NM – the land of Enhancement. Not this kind.
