We don’t want no stinking paparazzi, but we do want you to play one on TV…
Well, maybe not so much on TV, but if you or someone you know is a professional or novice photog who may be interested in supporting the New Mexico Film Industry, please take the time to read and share the following notice:
Want to help out? This Thursday evening Film Industry advocates are throwing the 100th Bill Party, hosted by IATSE Local 480. This year’s theme is, “A Salute to the Movie Business”!
Event organizers want to create the atmosphere of a big industry event for all! To make the party that much more exciting and glamorous, what better than having photographers snapping away red carpet style photos of all attendees and the major star appearances expected?
If you’d like to help* and get important New Mexico Film legislation passed, come to the Santa Fe Community Convention Center from 5′ish to 7′ish with your camera dressed as a paparazzi.
*If you show-up in your paparazzi best to help advance the cause, I volunteer to post your select photographs of the event (and/or other works) here along with your contact information for possible follow-up photography jobs! Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your shots!
Back in the day this look could get a cook damn near executed…and back when these two polar opposite actresses played equally different sisters apartment pants were all the rage (not really).
Here both ladies are sporting new accessories – Academy Award winning actress Reese Witherspoon with her husband, Hollywood Agent Jim Toth and Jennifer (1shot) Aniston with her latest boyfriend, actor/screenwriter Justin Theroux show us what the new airport chic looks like from both ends of the celebrity totem pole.
So the next time your incognito needs an update remember, new man, classic shades and the airport scarf are IN.
Or they’re coming anyway and looking to hire from within. We’re all for creating more work for natives, HOWEVER…
Ahhemm, incoming madame Governess perhaps t’is time to look into what/how this shall be regulated. Oui? Ou non?
Personally I’ve long been awaiting it as an inevitability, torn between the positive exposure of our great state, preserving the privacy and integrity of our home grown productions and the possibility of spawning the pure evil, sprung from photog seeking/feeding media wh-ores.
We’ve said it before – there will eventually be the need for regulation here as in the Governator’s state – better sooner than later? Chime in & chime up NM.
and p.s. before you call me out for calling the kettle a big ol’ bag of pot…click
No one has rocked the hooker with the heart of gold role like our own Julia Roberts. From that Disney Classic that burst her on to the world’s radar to her seclusion here on the mountain range of Taos, NM the public loves us some Julia.
Eric Witt, Governor Richardson’s Deputy Chief of Staff and Film Policy Advisor said, “As a government entity, we have a responsibility to provide to our legislature and taxpayers information which substantiates our belief in the film industry as a major economic driver, and which meaningfully relates to the citizens and businesses of the state the benefits received in return for offering production incentives…”

Bravo Signore, and now we have a few more suggestions for you and our next Governess. Green film transparency, e.g. where are they getting all their water for wet downs. We can’t water our patch of grass but once a week so what kind of water is being used to slick down a shoot day in and day out?
Premieres! Where are our red carpets??? Gamer opened yesterday and there are at least four other big name, big screeners hitting the theaters very soon. Amendment 101 to the tax credit bill – bring your press junkets, stars, fans, media and premiere soirees to the 505 = even more state revenue and more promotion and anticipation for the production.
Pappers – New York and especially L.A. grapple with papparazi control vs. supply & demand. We’ve long said some proactive measures are warranted and only become more important as the industry grows here – and grow it must!
