***MISP-EVENTS-L is an announcement only listserv***

Date and Time:
April 14, 2009 from 7:00pm - 8:30pm

Location:
ARTS Lab
131 Pine St NE
Albuquerque, NM 87131

Description:
Join actor Barbara Geary as we explore the process of creating a
character using the body as the fundamental vehicle for expression.
Explore principals of movement, gestural language and a range of
physical, emotional and comedic experience. Techniques learned can be
applied to elements such as visual and auditory, composition, building
the rhythm and arc of a scene, character design, character establishment
and interaction, art direction, and cinematography.

The session culminates in the development of a personal "cartoon"
character that can be both animated and performed live. If you have a
character you've been working on, or want to work on, please bring
sketches or other images to work from and share with the group.

bonus: It's also a lot of fun!

About the Speaker:
Barbara has had a varied performance career, careening through Mud
Shows, mask performance, indie films and Shakespeare. A graduate of
Dell'Arte International School of Physical Theatre, she has performed
with The Victims of Circus Dance, The Dell'Arte Company and
Imago-Theatre Mask Ensemble.

Her directing credits include the acclaimed contemporary commedias Love
Potion # Mine and 3 Dottories 3. She has extensive experience as a mask
maker and visual artist, exhibiting her ceramic sculpture around the
country. In 2000, she developed the graduate course Physical Expression
For Animators at the Rochester Institute of Technology and has brought
that work to animators around the country.

Barbara currently lives in Santa Fe, NM where she is directing The
Language of Birds for Santa Fe Music.

Hi everyone: 

It's with great pleasure that I announce the launch of Storytron v. 1.0. Here's the press release. 

______________

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 STORYTRON LAUNCHES WITH SEQUEL TO CRAWFORD'S HIT GAME BALANCE OF POWER

        JACKSONVILLE, Oregon, 23 March 2009 – World renowned game designer Chris Crawford has created a sequel to his blockbuster, Balance of Power, Storytron, Inc. announced today. The original Balance of Power took the computer gaming world by storm in 1985. Now Balance of Power 21st Century, re-imagined for modern times, launches a new computer entertainment medium.

       Balance of Power 21st Century opens with the 9-11 attacks. The player is the president of the U.S., and must match wits with other world leaders to defeat terrorism and keep the world safe. The product is not a traditional game; rather, it showcases Storytron Inc.'s technology, Storytron 1.0, also available for public use.

       "Balance of Power 21st Century is the Pong of storyplay," Crawford says. "It is the first of its kind, and is still a little rough around the edges. This is a feasibility demonstration, not a commercial product. But it demonstrates the power of this new medium."

       Storyplay (also known as interactive storytelling) is an art form that combines the strengths of games with those of traditional narrative. Storyworlds, which realize this new art form, are highly interactive, like games. Like stories, though, events center on the people. The computer-generated characters whom the player meets are emotionally aware, each with their own personalities, relationships, moods, and personal agendas. They are in essence primitive "AIs."

        The player interface, Storyteller, uses a linguistic user interface, or LUI, crafted specifically for Storytronics, which permits the player to communicate with the non-human characters in a much richer way than any other product out there. It elevates the written word into an interactive form, based on extensive research into linguistics and the nature of human verbal communication.

       Storytronics has been in development for over fifteen years. Crawford has teamed with writer Laura J. Mixon and a small group of programmers, artists, storytellers, and other pioneers to create this new software, which allows people to create a new kind of online storytelling experience. The authoring tool is free for download at Storytron.com. Anyone can use it to create storyworlds of their own design. Storytron publishes authors' completed works on its website, where players play them, rate them, and discuss them in Storytron's online forum.

       Additional storyworlds are under development, including Mixon's Vanity and Vexation, a Regency romance inspired by Jane Austen's works, and several efforts by independent authors. The technology is compatible with Windows, Mac OS/X, and Linux operating systems. People with a broadband internet connection can run the Java-based software using a variety of web browsers.

       Play Balance of Power 21st Century at http://storytron.com/play-bop2k.php. Download the authoring tool, SWAT, and test drive it at http://storytron.com/authors-download-swat.php. Storytron's online community can be found at http://www.storytron.com/ipb/index.php.

       Storytron, Inc. is a privately-held Delaware company incorporated in 2007 to commercialize storyplay technology. For more information contact Chris Crawford: Storytron, Inc., P.O. Box 425, Jacksonville, OR, 97530. Telephone: (541) 899-9150. Website: www.storytron.com.

[MISP] 9th Grade Student Film Contest

***MISP-EVENTS-L is an announcement only listserv*** *

Secretary of Education and State Historian Announce Student Film Contest Documenting Historic Trades
Contact: Pam Pierce (505) 820-0552; pamelawpierce@msn.com
March 6, 2009 (Santa Fe, NM) Secretary of Education Dr. Veronica C. García and State Historian Dr. Estevan Rael-Gálvez today announced a film and photography contest for New Mexico 9th graders. Students working in groups that include 9th graders are also eligible.

Students are encouraged to create an original film or photomontage that relates a traditional trade or career to a community's past. The film should also aim to document the education and technology necessary to preserve that trade in the future.

Possible trades for students to document include farming, ranching, construction, weaving and the arts.
"This film project is a terrific opportunity for New Mexico students to learn more about their community's history, and to research potential careers," Dr. García said.

"Commemorating historic trades offers students the great opportunity to realize the amazing dignity of labor in history," Dr. Rael-Gálvez said. "It will illuminate those who have tilled the soil, cleared the acequias, soothed the fevers, carved the santos, hunted buffalo, sheared sheep, quilted creativity, and gathered the ground into adobes, adobes into homes and homes into plazas."

The deadline for submissions is May 1. The four best entries will be selected by June 30, and those schools will each receive a digital camera package.

Student films will also be considered for inclusion to the Office of the State Historian's Digital History Project, and the best projects will be included in a DVD for use by the Public Education Department and schools as a teaching tool.

  In Hollywood, the Easy-Money Generation Toughens Up

By MICHAEL CIEPLY and BROOKS BARNES

New York Times Business and Finance, March 23rd 2009

( http://www.nytimes.com/2009/03/23/business/media/23moguls.html?ref=business )

 

 

Scene Stealer - Who Threw the DVD From the Train? - NYTimes.com 3/22/09

...Business at the multiplex is going gangbusters. Ticket sales are up 14 percent this year over the same period in 2008, according to the tracking firm Media By Numbers. Attendance is up 12 percent after falling the last two years.

But according to studios, sales for some new-release DVDs are down a jaw-dropping 40 percent, hammered by the recession (see NYT interactive graphic http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2009/03/03/us/20090303_LEONHARDT.html?ref=business), a saturated market (on sale now: the complete ninth season of “Murder, She Wrote”) and a shift to Internet downloads.

At least for the moment, Hollywood is heading back to the days when the theatrical run of a film was actually important for more reasons than serving as a marketing platform for home video.

...Hollywood insiders recoiled at the Sony film “Paul Blart: Mall Cop” until it started printing money at the multiplex. So far, this screwball comedy, made for $26 million, has sold $138 million in tickets and is still playing.

Re: [MISP] please disregard last reply - - >> Re: 4th Question


Yow-sur, Mike,  . . . and there's the RUB.

   You have been "exposed," er, contaminated  to working/producing ". . . in the ZONE" up there in the ABQ/Santa Fe circle!!!   . . ., oh yes, on "real" films, to make REAL  $$s.   And that's good!!!

   I intend to work/produce somewhere between here and Zeta Reticulae, which is actually visible from the Southern Hemisphere, about 40 Light-years away, and is a Double Star with about 0.4 Light-years between their solar spheres.  
         [That's #2 peaking over the Horizon below.   I may have depicted it a little large, but . . ..]

   My "crews" will depend on finding a Papa John's open 24/7!!!   {In my data base -- feed an animator, and they will stay at his/her workstation without chaining to the desk!!!   That and little pats on the head!!!}    The hang up is, you (me) would probably have to stay with them 24/7.   [So the Studio's Architects will need to include showers!!!]   For several years Arrowhead Studios can probably get by without Sound Stages (or take a page out of Lucas's book and get some help from Pinewood), but finish production here in Doña Ana County with New Mexicans.   Boys and girls that didn't have to leave the State to find "technical" work with their higher education.

   Well, that's one plan!!!     . . .  I got a bunch more.      .  .  .  to make REAL  $$s, also.

Wow!  A very intelligent fire storm...

First my apologies to Gene and the list.  He's correct in that my response was also a cheap shot.

But as I read the questions, my previous experience as both pollster and journalist mashed all the buttons.  I responded quickly and insufficiently in what was essentially an emotional discharge. 
So, lets take a look at the primary question and the standard unbiased answers to such a question.

"Do you support the programs that make up our state's film incentives package, as they are currently designed?"
To which I would have expected to see choices that read,
"Yes"
"No"
"Undecided"
and in some polls the possible 4th choice
"Additional Comments"

In my opinion, the poll was legitimate. The opening premise question was legitimate. The choices for answers were deliberately leading and biased.  If not, why were they phrased the way they were?

As to the question of "journalism", if "In Focus" is not a news program, what is it?  
Gene, I' believe that Robert is correct here.  KNME is a broadcast television station, part of whose mission is news. "In Focus" is a news program.  The poll is tied to "In Focus" and therefore the conclusion must be that since it's not explained by "In Focus" as something else, it must be a data gathering mechanism for a news program, ergo, "journalism".     "If it walks like a duck......."

Knowing you and your very subtle humor, I could be tempted to believe it was satire, but it wasn't framed as satire. 
Switching gears now, since the subject has now been approached on this list, my opinion about incentives for movie making to go outside Albuquerque/Santa Fe lean a slightly different direction than what I read here this evening.  The real issue for producers not wanting to go outside the production zone is financial.  It becomes much more expensive for productions to take crew to "distant" locations.  It's not that we don't want to go to the outlying areas of the State, it's simply not financially feasible for most productions to do so. 
The idea that I think is appropriate, however, is not to directly incentivize productions, but to provide additional incentives to the service industries that  support  movies in  areas outside the zone.  That would include travel, food and lodging industries. For instance, if a hotel housing a movie project were to receive incentives that offset the production cost of putting up crew, producers could get better deals from the hotel and would be more inclined to support areas outside the zone.

I haven't worked out all the pros and cons of this idea, so this seems like a good forum for that discussion.  Maybe there are other answers that would mitigate the financial issue for producers.  I do think it would be more acceptable for the legislature and the people of the State to see the incentives spread to other industries.

Thanks,
Mike

The modern challenge to that "no locked door" lifestyle is that the young'uns will seek a wider future and leave their hometowns for greener pastures... (pun intended). Having a vibrant media industry here in New Mexico will help keep our best and brightest (and expensively educated) kids here in the state... without the incentive program 100% of them will fly the coop and vanish to greener pastures.

[MISP] Michigan State Study



Thank you Eric for the Michigan State report. If my math is correct $65 million divided into 32 film projects means that each project budget average is just a little over $2 million. Factor in some films with larger budgets and you see that the smaller projects have a great economic impact on a State. New Mexico must not ignore these facts. One thing that this study does not point out, but is pointed out in other studies, is that those film makers are not transient and more likely become permanent residents therefore creating a "local industry" creating a larger tax base. Senate Joint Memorial 30, sponsored by Senator Beffort, past the Senate 32-0 and asks that our Film Office and State Investment Council take a close look at implementing support and finances for films with budgets under $2 million. We as an industry must now continue the momentum that the Senate Bill has given us by educating the Film Office and State Investment Council about this segment of the business known as the Small and Independent Film Business community. First lesson, success is measured not by a Theatrical release but the net profits gained in this $4 billion dollar market - profits are more likely to remain in the local community. Secondly, economic impact to the state comes from the production funds spent here, i.e. impact in Michigan not by Theatrical box office numbers.

Thanks to all who supported the Memorial and as the legislative session winds down, I would say it was a productive one for the Small and Independent Film Business community. I am looking forward to working with all of you.

Re: [MISP] 4th Question >> Re: [MISP] please disregard last reply ---


Yes, Doug, but don't forget those of us down here that are pushing for CG Pre- Post- Production "animation" SFX facilities down at this end of the state, also!!!   Some time in the future NMSU's  Arrowhead Studios  may actually be REAL!!!

You may NOT have noticed that "High Tek Consortium of Southern New Mexico; SIGGRAPH Pioneer" business below my name.   In 1975 I hand carried the Defense Mapping Agency's 1st Digitized Terrain product from DC back to WSMR to "analyze War Game Outputs" for Fort Sill.  When I moved up to Fort Leavenworth, our terrain stuff got used on Loren Green's Battle Star Glactica.  When I taught FORTRAN @ NMSU '96-'02, they let me teach Animation twice.   Now I'm auditing Maya classes at NMSU's CMI  <cmi.nmsu.edu>   and CMT  <www.dacc.nmsu.edu/tsd/creative>  .

Boy, is there a lot to learn in Maya, and they keep "up-grading" it, or so AutoDesk claims???  [It's the Bill Gates Business Model!!!]

MISP   >>>    moving on!!!!!   Let us ALL move on together!!!    

Should ILM happen to do part of the next Indiana Jones flick in Deming, it is a PLUS for all New Mexicans!!! 
{ . . . or I shoot the TRUE History of "Corona/Roswell"???  I will need lots of CG EFXs!!!  . . . and I don't want do them on the Coast!!!}

Amen on option 4, Robert.

I'm in favor of expanding incentives so producers get additional
incentives for using locations outside of the Albq/SF area.  I totally
understand using wonderful production facilities in Albuquerque but I'd
love some location shots to be done in Grants and some of these other
great communities you mentioned.  Throw us a bone :)   Location shoot...
crowd scene with extras.  That can go a long way to making the state feel
included in this industry.  A little PR like this can go a long way.

Thanks,
Doug

Gene,

I sort of felt the same way Michael did.     But . . .

  A Fourth Question Choice might have been:


4)  Yes, and I feel that the NM Film Incentives have been good for
the State [mainly ABQ/Santa Fe Area], and should be expanded into the
outlying regions: Farmington, Grants, Roswell, Carlsbad, Hobbs,
Clovis, Raton, Las Vegas(NM), Silver City, Deming -- Luna County,
TorC, Alamogordo, and "The Queen of the Mesilla Valley,"  the "Anchor
of the Rio Grande Technology Corridor," Las Cruces - !!!

  [It is some of those outlying members (Roswell--Rep. Kintigh) of
the Legislature (and their constituents), that feel "left out" in
NM's Film Incentive Program.]



Now KNME is a "television station," which down here at NMSU comes
under the purview of the Journalism Department.   And when TV
stations ask "questions," they fall under "journalism's" Who, What,
Where, Why, How POV!!!

   "March is Women's History month, and NEW MEXICO IN FOCUS is
celebrating all things female,  . . .   " sounds like journalism to
me?????

. . .  but maybe Michael wants to answer your question himself???

You're going to have to explain, 'cheap shot leading questions,' to
this list my friend. The irony being a cheap shot on a public list
wihout that explanation.

While you're at it, please explain how a poll question falls under
'journalism.'

Trying to do our bit here Mike. The film business is important to a
lot of folks at KNME, directly and indirectly.

What we should be objecting to is not the survey, but the cheap shot
leading questions used in the survey.  I was under the impression
that
KNME could be counted on for responsible impartial journalism.
In any
case, we can't afford to ignore it.  Please go online and vote.

Amen on option 4, Robert.

I'm in favor of expanding incentives so producers get additional
incentives for using locations outside of the Albq/SF area. I totally
understand using wonderful production facilities in Albuquerque but I'd
love some location shots to be done in Grants and some of these other
great communities you mentioned. Throw us a bone :) Location shoot...
crowd scene with extras. That can go a long way to making the state feel
included in this industry. A little PR like this can go a long way.

Thanks,
Doug
