Posted by on September 16, 2013 | One comment

From the mental team who brought you the Bigfoot Election comes the latest New Mexico indie hit, “Abe Makes a Movie”.

Watch the video above to see the amazing fundraising efforts they’ve made so far and click here to support this very special New Mexico film making duo!

In just 10 days Ryan Turri and Matt Peterson raised over $17,000, getting them well on their way to bringing this blood, sweat and tears movie to life.

And now it’s time to get serious. They only have 20 days left and the clock is ticking…

“We are asking that you please HELP! By Friday we need to hit $32,000 to meet our halfway point goal. Anything can help.

If we get 130 people to donate $125 or more (which, besides supporting the movie in a huge way, you’ll get a signed copy of the movie and other awesome perks) we’ll be well on our way. Of course, whatever you can give is amazing!

And a HUGE thanks to everyone who has supported us so far. It means the world to me and us at the Abe Makes A Movie team! We can’t do it without you!!

THANK YOU!!!!!!” -Ryan

This blogette and the entire team of OneHeadlightInk contributors can sincerely endorse the efforts of these and so many independent filmmakers right here in the Land of Enchantment.

The more we can support our own, the more they will shine the light back on the spectacular talent and crews this state has yet to show the WORLD!

LOOK FOR IT, The Bigfoot Election…COMING SOON to a screen near YOU!


In this con-gone-wrong comedy, a boozy, disenchanted small-town deputy devises a Bigfoot hoax with his dimwitted sidekick to capture the attention – and the votes – of the townsfolk in a backwater sheriff’s election. Complications abound when the mayor enlists an alluring cryptozoologist to investigate, and hires the hoaxers to guide her.

Bigfoot, NM Style

As I am but a lowly housewife with internet access (think Roseanne with slightly better furniture, worse housekeeping and no actual wage earning) I defer to an actual journalist, as I almost always do, except, if and when I refer to fellow hacks ;).

Here, from real-life professional entertainment journalist, Chris J. Ortiz is a full fledged article about the long awaited New Mexico film The Bigfoot Election.


After being fired, a boozy, derelict small town deputy named Talmadge Mooseman (Marc Shuter) is convinced to run for sheriff by his gruff adoptive father Carlin (Randall Oliver). He enlists the help of his endearing, albeit dim-witted friend Amer (Matt Peterson), and the two devise a Bigfoot hoax to garner attention and votes from the townspeople. Things quickly spiral out of control as the con begins to take on a life of its own and becomes bigger than either of them imagined. Matters get complicated even further when the local mayor (Bruce Holbrook) brings in an alluring cryptozoologist (Ashlee Renz-Hotz) and enlists Talmadge to guide her during her search.

Catch it:

Premiering this August 20 at the Albuquerque Film Festival followed by a screening at The White Sands International Film Festival August 25th.
