The people of New Mexico have a wealth of untold stories to communicate to the world, based on originality, courage and ingenuity. Let's begin to genuinely co-create, collaborate and cooperate with one another to make it all work in unity--together. Story is the backbone of the industry, technology supports story.. Technology cannot survive without Story.
The time is now to share what's in our HEARTS and in our SPIRIT to influence our BRAINS and CO-CREATE in a new and innovative way. The future harmony and balance of humanity and our environment depends on it.

Not just film, but computing,technology and even video games.A couple key issues jumped out at me:1) The industry is one of the fasting growing in our state, if not theonly one showing growth over the last eight years. Even though NewMexico is one of the top film producing states we only have 2% of thatmarket. Imagine how much more we could grow.2) Incentives need to include the video game industry which is much biggerthan the film industry world wide.3) Smaller New Mexico based productions/companies needs to be givenadditional incentives/support - these are the future and what will sustainus4) While I agree that we need to unite and be heard by our stategovernment, we also need to reach out to the tax payers. THANK YOU NEWMEXICO! is what we need to say. We need to thank the people forsupporting the industry. Intel is an example of a company that reachesout to their community, helps the schools and gets involved with thepeople. We need to show regular people, not just our state government,that the industry is here to stay and wants to make everyone a part of it.Get a celebrity on a billboard with a local New Mexican who has benefitedfrom an industry job and say THANK YOU NEW MEXICO! Make it more thanbusiness or politics. Make it part of who we are in New Mexico. We arestorytellers for the world.Sorry... just had to rant. It was a good couple of days. Thankseveryone. Keep up the good work. We appreciate all the film industrydoes for us.See ya,Doug Bocaz-Larson
