ABQ Art in the City: Call to Artists

AlbuquerqueArtJobsNM


Vito Valdez/Detroit

“We encourage emerging artists — those who perhaps haven’t had a lot of experience in doing public art but want the opportunity,”

From cabq.gov:

The City of Albuquerque Public Art Program, the Albuquerque Arts Board, and the Creative Albuquerque Mural Selection Committee have initiated a project to enhance the east exterior wall of a facility located at 115 4th Street NW. The facility is owned by the City of Albuquerque and leased by Creative Albuquerque.

The Committee seeks artists from the greater Albuquerque area to design and install a mural/relief that will embody the values and mission of Creative Albuquerque, while further enhancing the diversity of the Downtown Arts and Cultural district and the 4th Street pedestrian mall.

Regina Chavez of Creative Albuquerque tells KOAT, “We are hoping to get a lot of submissions. We like the idea of creativity. We like the idea of something more contemporary and interesting,”

The deadline for submissions is Friday, February 3rd, 2012 at 4:00 p.m.

For more details about this project please read the Prospectus here.

#NM Lights, Camera, Santa Fe Cinema Casting

Posted by on December 30, 2011 | Comments Off

Judy Bell brings over thirty years film industry experience to the newly formed New Mexico casting company, Santa Fe Cinema Casting.

Partnered with Santa Fe businessman and producer Ord Morgan, Bell has launched a new casting registration database for New Mexico, online now.

The pair are currently developing a New Media Summit projected for the fall of 2012, centering on the latest in technology, new media experts and industry pros who are moving into that arena.

Regarding film production in New Mexico and beyond, Bell tells us, “We still have a ways to go to overcome the harm done by the administration, and the economy and declining box office are changing the face of the entire entertainment industry”, but goes on to share the sentiments of many saying, “I expect 2012 to see an upsurge in filming now that Santa Fe Studio is open and the furor over the rebate program has died down.”

Since starting the first Casting & Production Services company in San Diego as a native Californian, Bell has been ensconced in the world of film in every position from production to wardrobe and casting to craft service, on low budget/no budget projects to major studio productions, infomercials and commercials.

With Org, Bell is currently developing an NM web series and feature films. Santa Fe Cinema Casting company is online now and open for registration.

SFCC expects to hold its first open call sometime in the first quarter of 2012.

I’ve been acting and in love with the film biz since childhood and it seems that some people are just born into it. It has to be a passion in order to keep working, pushing, believing, suffering, and hoping, as it’s a tough business. Being a creative person is a gift but it also requires freedom from regimentation so you have to be willing to take risks and suffer the consequences.
I want to see the new studio stages filled and work opportunities for people in the Santa Fe area. This will improve tourism and global recognition as a vital economic center beyond its reputation as a world class art center.
- Judy Bell

OPEN CALL/EQUAL TIME NEW MEXICO

Posted by on September 13, 2010 | 8 comments

This November New Mexico will choose a new Governor. Will it be Diane Denish or Susana Martinez (alphabetically)?  If Social Net is any indicator…(as of 9/13/10)

Denish (D)

Martinez (R)

23 Following on Twitter

AND this broke Blogette wants YOU to know where both of these candidates stand on the New Mexico Film Industry:

“New Mexico is currently named #3 in all of North America and ABQ #1 in the U.S. for film production, facing steep competition from IL, LA, and MI (to name a few ) what is your stand on incentives, education and job training for the industry, growth or repeal?” -©Sindication

We will promptly post any official statement from either/both campaigns as soon as one not likely might be received…

UPDATE, Denish Response:

“The film industry has been a beacon for jobs during tough times. One of my main concerns is jump starting our economy in New Mexico. The film industry is definitely key in doing so. We need to continue to work with the industry and the Legislature provide sustainable, accountable incentives, as well as build up post production in New Mexico.” – Diane Denish 9/14/10

09/16/10 Next Question – NM Tech Industry:

Duke City Tech via @misspeter wants to know…

“IT workers who grew up in NM often consider themselves lucky to work
in their home state. If they managed to make it through the public
schools with a decent education, they are frequently lured away by out
of state universities. Recent graduates face a bleak job market and
often find that leaving NM is the only choice to advance their
career. What would you, as governor, do to nurture the development and
education of local high tech workers? How would you keep the local
talent here and what would you do to bring more high tech jobs to NM?”
- Peter Mezensky

Again, we will promptly post any official statement from either/both campaigns as soon as one might be received…

UPDATE, Denish Response:
