Fresh Produce

Are you considering getting into the film biz as a producer? If your answer is yes, then you’re probably crazy. But if you’re OK with that assessment, you might want to check out the upcoming Pre-Production Management for Television & Digital Media class from Film Apprenticeship Programs Inc. The class meets February 20, 21, 27 and 28—that’s Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Class fee is a none-too-cheap $450, but you’re gonna be a producer, so what do you care? Class will take place at Spirit Productions in Santa Fe. John Muir, educator and owner of The Muir Studio, will lead this four-day seminar. After successfully completing all four sessions and projects, each student should have acquired “a basic understanding of script breakdown, budget development and the use of selected industry tools.” For information, log on to

Valhalla Awaits

Got a burning desire to appear in the next Marvel Comics movie? The producers of Thor are looking for “lots of paid extras” for the film, which will be shot in the Santa Fe area this March and April. An open casting call will take place Friday, Feb. 19, from 2 to 7 p.m. and Saturday, Feb. 20, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 224 E. Palace Avenue in Santa Fe. (Enter the parking lot off Paseo de Peralta and go to Marian Hall on the first floor.) This casting call is ages 18 and over only. If you don’t have photos, they will be taken on site at no charge. You are, however, instructed to bring a pen. I’d suggest bringing a mighty one.

Got Grit?

The remake of True Grit, directed by Joel and Ethan Coen and starring Jeff Bridges and Matt Damon, will shoot a significant portion of its climax right here in New Mexico. Based on the 1968 novel by Charles Portis, True Grit is the story of a young girl who enlists the help of an aging U.S. Marshal, Rooster Cogburn, to hunt down the man who murdered her father and avenge his death. Casting agents for the film are on the hunt for female and male horse riders here in New Mexico. These are paid positions. If you’ve got the necessary skills, register at or mail contact information with riding experience, sizes and photos to: Elizabeth Gabel, 304 Washington SE, Albuquerque, N.M. 87108.
