[MISP] Grant hangs in balance for studios

Grant hangs in balance for studios

Amendments for project agreement likely to be tabled at meeting today

 

Phaedra Haywood | The New Mexican
Posted: Monday, March 29, 2010

 

 

State officials say they are still reviewing plans for a film studio complex south of Santa Fe to determine if the project qualifies for a $10 million economic development grant.

Santa Fe County has already agreed to lend the private developers $6 million to build the complex, and provide another $3.6 million worth of infrastructure and water rights free of charge.

But the state departments of Finance and Administration and Economic Development haven't yet approved the project to receive the $10 million Local Economic Development grant.

"We have not certified this project," Toni Balzano, deputy cabinet secretary of the state Economic Development Department said Monday. Balzano said the department had come up with several amendments to the project agreement related to the number of jobs created and the financial guarantees in place to protect the city and county investments being made in to the project.

Those amendments were supposed to be considered during the County Commission meeting today — though they were listed on the consent calendar, which means they likely would not be discussed before the vote. But County Attorney Stephen Ross said Monday the amendments are "not ready for prime time yet," and the issue probably will have to be tabled at today's meeting.

Neither Santa Fe County nor the Economic Development Department could provide copies of the proposed resolutions.

Ross said the documents were not completed yet. Balzano said the amendments were not yet public record.

Santa Fe Film and Media Studios father-and-son partners Lance Hool and Jason Hool have been negotiating the film studios project with Santa Fe County for years.

The most recent version of the plan calls for two sound stages to be built on a 65-acre property just off N.M. 14, with more stages and film-related developments to follow in subsequent phases. It's estimated that the first phase will cost about $20 million, $10 million of which would come from a state Local Economic Development grant.

County officials have strongly supported the project for its economic development and job creation potential.

But the deal was recently the subject of a lawsuit filed by three Santa Fe residents alleging the project does not meet the requirements to receive the economic development grant. The suit also alleges the county should have asked voters before making a change to polices that will allow the $6 million loan to be financed through the sale of gross receipts tax revenue bonds.

Ross said he expects to file the county's legal response to the complaint soon, but declined to comment on it at this time.

State Democratic Party Chair Javier Gonzales — who is a partner in Santa Fe Film and Media Studios — downplayed the significance of the lawsuit Monday.

"Obviously we absolutely believe it does qualify," Gonzales said, adding that the project had been through extensive review at the state and county.

Gonzales said he's also confident the amendments suggested by the state Economic Development Department are minor tweaks and the project will receive final approval in the next few weeks.

Join us THIS FRIDAY, April 2nd for Digital Lunch at UNM with one of our favorite local game developers, Terry Borst. His hands-on approach and real world experience are invaluable -- and his enthusiasm is infectious.

Terry Borst has worked as a professional screenwriter for more than 20 years, with credits in film, television, and videogames.  Here in New Mexico, he teaches screenwriting at the College of Santa Fe, Santa Fe Community College, and the Screenwriting Conference at Santa Fe.  His two books about serious game and simulation development have been published by Focal Press.  Find out more at:  http://www.terryborst.com.

ABOUT END to END GAME DEVELOPMENT
End to End Game Development published by Focal Press is a handbook for the conceptualizing, development, production and distribution of serious games, simulations, and other interactive media projects.  This presentation by the co-author will provide an overview of key areas the book covers including: why game aesthetics, mechanics and technology are the next logical step for all kinds of training and persuasion; how serious game production is within the reach of indie "garage game" developers and corporate departments; and ways to create feedback loops between solid game design and solid instructional design.  Find out more at:  http://www.endtoendgamedevelopment.com.

KOTA EZAWA
http://www.textslidesandvideotapes.org/


Kota Ezawa's video works, based upon archival film and video footage, TV news reports, and Hollywood movies, are animations constructed through digital means. Inspired by constructivist thinking, his videos are reconstructions of iconic moments in media history. Through what becomes a fictionalization and simplification of history, and through the use of repetition in the "tape" loop, Kota's work evokes in the viewer a desire to look closer, extract truth and pose questions about the information and narratives dispersed by media images.

Ezawa was born in Colone, Germany. He received his BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute in 1996 and MFA from Stanford University in 2003.

His work has been featured internationally, in numerous solo shows including at the Wexner Center for the Arts, St Louis Art Museum, Hayward Gallery in London,  Santa Monica Museum of Art, Murray Guy in NY, and Franklin Art Works in Minnesota.  Ezawa's work has been included in over 70 group exhibitions including recent 2009-2010 exhibitions at the Vancouver Art Gallery, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Smithsonian Museum of American Art, Site Santa Fe, International Center of Photography, Berkeley Art Museum, and the Orange County Museum of Art.

He is a recipient of the SFMOMA SECA award, a Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Award and the Jack and Gertrude Murphy Fellowship from the San Francisco Foundation. His works are in many public art collections including the Museum of Modern Art, Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Kunstmuseum Stuttgart, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Orange County Museum of Art, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Albright Knox Museum, and Smithsonian Museum of American.

He is Assistant Professor at the California College of the Arts and is represented by Haines Gallery in San Francisco, and Murray Guy in New York.
