'New Mexico Film Industry partners will accept all public submissions beginning March 15.'
The New Mexico Film Foundation, in partnership with the New Mexico Post Alliance, Friends of Film, Video and Arts, and the New Mexico Tourism Department, will seek submissions from the New Mexico public to complete a media project entitled “Life in New Mexico,” beginning Saturday, March 15, 2014.
"The purpose of this project is to bring attention to the Post Production process that is part of the New Mexico film industry," said Dirk Norris, President of the New Mexico Film Foundation, "and to highlight the New Mexico men and women who work in this area of filmmaking."
All residents will be invited to submit 3-minute video clips about living in New Mexico from the mundane to the spectacular. All types of video will be accepted but must meet content requirements. Video from people of all walks of life in New Mexico is of interest. The submitted films will be given to professional post production companies in New Mexico for them to compile in order to promote their expertise and abilities in editing. Post-production professionals have the choice to edit any or all footage accepted for the project, and online voting will be conducted to determine audience favorites.
Basic guidelines are as follows:
