New Mexico Film Foundation

thumbs up
Making movies is an art, a science, a business... but most of all it's a challenge, especially for young film makers, independents, minority members, and all those who find themselves outside Hollywood and the studio system.

The New Mexico Film Foundation is a brand-new non-profit organization whose goal it will be to help New Mexico film makers with a mutual support, education, networking... and grants.  It's headed by Dirk Norris, a former member of the state Film Commission, and a long time member of the local and state film community.

RIght now Dirk is trying to raise some start-up funds with an Indiegogo campaign.  You can find the details here:

Go check it out, and if you have a few bucks, give.  Robert A. Heinlein once said he could not possibly pay back all those who helped him when he was starting out, so he believed in paying forward, and helping those who came after him.  That's what the New Mexico Film Foundation is all about.

It's a good cause, and we may get some good films out of it.

Night ends, and now so begins our call to give to the New Mexico Film Foundation. And to think, three days ago I was only thinking about the Academy Awards, not the struggling independent filmmakers. Do you think, great Ser, that there is any chance of ever getting to see a Wild Cards film out of this? Now that would be a cause worth donating to!!!

Wild Cards is under option at Universal, but if it does get made, it is unlikely to be in New Mexico. Wild Cards is very much a New York City kind of film.
