It’s going to be an ‘Enchanted’ Bachelor season

Posted by on September 12, 2014 | Comments Off

New-Bachelor-Chris-Soules-headed-to-Santa-Fe-New-Mexico-in-October

When I heard that a major ratings grabber would be setting up shop in northern New Mexico to air on one of the big three television networks (ABC, CBS, NBC), I thought we may on the verge of learning the new home for the beloved NM series, Longmire.

But a resolution to that dramatic saga has yet to unfold. In the meantime, filming is just now getting underway for another type of drama, The Bachelor 2015.

You may recall a bit of a hullabaloo going on in our capital city recently as governing councilors debated the issue of offering incentives to the ABC hit. In the end the city council voted 5-4 in favor of offering a tax break to the tune of $50,000 in production costs, with the New Mexico Tourism department kicking in another $50,000 out of their $16,607,3230 reserve budget.

Though many feathers may be ruffled, OneHeadlightInk can exclusively report that part of the latest installment of the mega hit series is now expected in Santa Fe this October.

Set to premiere January 5, 2015, the highly anticipated return of the franchise is expected to rake in record views.

So, what do y’all think? Will it be white water rafting, hot-tubbing by the light of the silvery Santa Fe moon, fine dining, hiking, art appreciation, shopping, hot air ballooning, or all of the above for Bachelor, Chris Soules and his bevvy of beauties in the city different?

And, do you think the investment by New Mexico will pay off in painting the state as a hot tourist destination?

From Zimbabwe to Santa Fe

Posted by on July 21, 2012 | Comments Off

The New Mexico premiere of the locally produced, award winning documentary, “From Zimbabwe to Santa Fe” is sold out!

A second showing is now scheduled for Sunday, July 29, 2 p.m.

The Screen
1600 St. Michaels Drive
(on the Santa Fe University of Art and Design campus)
Santa Fe, New Mexico
(505) 473-6494

Get all the behind-the-scenes scoop during the Q & A session with the filmmaker, Cristina McCandless following the 75 minute screening.

“From Zimbabwe to Santa Fe,” by local filmmaker Cristina McCandless, chronicles the lives of three Zimbabwean women who take us along for the ride when they venture forth to sell their baskets at the world’s largest folk art market…yes, Santa Fe’s folk art market.

But, the film isn’t about The Market – It’s about these uniquely appealing heroines who stretch beyond their personal and cultural boundaries as they reach for a better life. Their creativity, persistence and humor in the face of the unexpected twists and turns along the road, inspire us to rethink our own notions of sustainability, success and prosperity.

This documentary, filmed in partnership with two rural Zimbabwean villages and sanctioned by the country’s arts and culture leadership, offers us a violence-free, victim-free, feel-good immersion into every-day village life in Africa’s southern hemisphere.

“From Zimbabwe to Santa Fe” recently screened at the Riverside International Film Festival where it won the Audience Favorite and Jurors Best Documentary awards. The film is a New Mexico Film Office New Visions Contract Award Winner and a “mentored” project of the National Association of Latino Independent Producers, Producers Academy.

Tix: $8.50 to $10.00, advance ticket purchase recommended, (505) 473-6494

Goodbye Meow the Cat

Posted by on May 7, 2012 | Comments Off
HealthMediaNM's OwnRIP

Pobre Meow. Last month El Gato Gordito made his way onto the world’s stage (well national television), and even on to the lap of America’s greatest talk show host, Anderson Cooper.

Now the famous tabby from Santa Fe, New Mexico is no more. After the whirl-wind press tour in which Meow’s plight to beat the bulge was made public, Meow was back home in NM, where he had been turned in to the Santa Fe Humane Society by his elderly owner whom could no longer care for him.

The Humane Society immediately set about with a regimen designed to save Meow’s life by aiming to cut down his morbidly obese weight, of 39 lbs. by at least 10.

Unfortunately, Meow lost his fight against the weight over the weekend. Santa Fe Animal Shelter executive director Mary Martin released the following announcement via facebook this morning:

Dear Friends,

I am devastated to share with you that the respiratory distress that Meow was experiencing last week (the reason we did not do his weigh-in) took his life at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 5. The Shelter staff – along with all those who met Meow during his short time with us – mourn his passing. As many of you are aware, Meow began wheezing last Thursday in his foster home, Dr. Jen began trying to sort out the problem, at first considering the possibility of asthma associated with his weight. She started treatment immediately to ease his breathing and, when Meow didn’t improve, she sought additional help for him from our emergency specialty hospital and an additional private veterinary hospital. Although four different veterinarians worked with Meow, we were unable to stop the progression of what turned out to be pulmonary failure. Meow had been doing so well in his foster home; walking up stairs and seeking affection – that it is so very hard to believe he is gone. We will forever be grateful for the attention Meow’s size brought to pet obesity and to animal shelters across the country. We are especially grateful to all of you who fell in love with this charming cat – as we did – and were so very interested in his progress and success.
With gratitude,
Mary Martin

Sweet, furry reminder of the toll weight takes on the body. And with all due respect proof that even the healing hands of Anderson Cooper cannot save a losing battle.

Adios Meow. Rest in peace and may your story save many lives, feline and otherwise.

New Mexico Film & Media Day 2012

Posted by on January 6, 2012 | Comments Off

It’s that time of year again…

A word from IATSE 480 Business Agent Jon Hendry:

“Yes, Film & Media Day will be Wednesday Feb. 1st.

This is not going to be the big extravaganza [surrounding the Roundhouse] that it was last year with a cast of thousands. In fact, given the Governor’s recent strong indication of support this will be more like a traditional lobby day. That does not mean that you all shouldn’t come – we don’t want to give the impression that we have lost interest as that may cause several initiatives important to us to die along with a presumed lack of interest. We need a big presence informing our legislators and asking for their support and encouraging ways to continue to expand our business and job prospects.

Here is the plan, On Jan. 31st New Mexico Women In Film (WIF) will host a panel and open forum discussing our legislative initiatives
especially around financing for NM independent film makers. More details from WIF to follow.

IATSE Local 480 has booked 20 tables spaces (currently available) in the Roundhouse for the day as well as the Rotunda at noon for speeches. Preference will be given for tables to educational institutions, non profits, industry associations, and trade groups but since we’ve all learned to share we should be able to get everyone a spot including your business if you want to be there.

We will honor a “mover and shaker” from the business for the speech time as that will normally attracted media attention so if you are one or know one please contact us directly.

The evening of the 1st there will be a reception at the Pink Adobe hosted by IATSE Local 480 and Santa Fe Studios where legislators and the industry can get together, meet, and mingle.

Table spaces cost $50 which includes the actual table set up and tear down, and 2 tickets to the reception. Reception tickets alone are $40 each so this is an excellent deal. IATSE is willing to pick up the cost for any educational program associated with us who cannot afford a table. We also understand that times are tight especially for secondary schools and we are willing to reimburse train fare or diesel for buses within reason for schools as we feel it is important that the future of the industry are front and center on that day. If you’re traveling a distance (and please, please, please do so as we need statewide participation) we can help arrange for low cost hotel rooms and buy breakfast (burritos) for those who show up to set up early.

As usual this is being put on by IATSE Local 480 because we have the resources to do so but this is not a Union or governmental deal it is the industry’s lobby day and we welcome full participation. It’s important that we’re all there. Let’s make it a respectful celebration.” – Jon

Those interested in a table space please send an email directly to: ba480@hotmail.com
(no phone calls please)

IATSE is also seeking creative ideas for activities and exhibitions to engage both attendees and elected officials. Suggestions and submissions that would involve the general public, legislators and their staffs, highlighting film trades, education, hardware/software, gizmos and events are encouraged and appreciated. Again, submit to ba480@hotmail.com, title your message “Film & Media Day Ideas”.

Chronos Film Festival, New Mexico Welcomes Jared Levy Fine Art

Posted by on October 17, 2011 | Comments Off
ArtEventsFilmNM

Most definitely barreling toward New Mexico at the speed of light and sound is an elite group of filmmakers, equipment and technological innovators, artists and rabid film fans!

One of these breakthrough film makers is Jared Levy. Fresh from a two year stint in São Paulo Brazil, Levy is bringing his latest film, Graffiti Fine Art to be featured in New Mexico’s Own Chronos Film Festival.

A journalism and documentary film graduate out of Syracuse New York, Levy credits direct interface with his subjects such as the time spent quite literally camped-out on the streets of Brazil to capture the amazing visuals of the underground art scene there, as illustrated by international artists who flocked to the exhibition for the chance to be showcased. Moreover Levy names innovators in DSLR equipment, technology and his peer pioneers for pushing the envelope in the medium for his ever ongoing “education” in film.

Overly humbled and sweet when acknowledging his role at Chronos as a unique opportunity to represent the medium amongst and on panel with the artists, manufacturers and outlets that aim to support the creative arts, even naming Philip Bloom “a professor” in his field, Levy noted that the participation of Steve Weiss, Eric Kessler and the support of Vimeo as key elements to the excitement surrounding this first ever festival of its kind.

When I got a chance to catch-up with Jared, the versatile artist had just wrapped some visual shooting of Jay-Z and co. at the Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation’s Carnival: Making The Ordinary Extraordinary, where the star raised over $1M in a matter of hours for college education funding for underprivileged youth.

Now after showings of his award winning, labor of love, Graffiti Fine Art at the Hot Springs Documentary Film Fest and Urban Media Filmmakers in Atlanta, Levy is headed our way.

Visit with Jared yourself now at JaredLevyMedia.com and be sure to meet-up with him at the Chronos Film Festival, presented by Vimeo in Santa Fe, New Mexico Nov. 3-5.
