Course Correction - Filmmaking For Now

Serendipity? Why else would we change course, at least for now, and focus on filmmaking? Partly because it’s fun, partly because it’s a challenge, partly because we have not geared up for a full scale change in art direction, and partly because the movie industry is so active here it’s hard not to be involved. We have few photos because we have to sign non-disclosure agreements until the films are released, and cell phones are not allowed on set.

So here are some previews:

CHAMBERS - A woman survives a heart transplant and begins to develop different personality traits. Stars Uma Thurman and Tony Goldwyn. Netflix is headquartered in Albuquerque. It is available on-line now. - Trailer
We are both in Episode 8, an equinox party scene.

PERPETUAL GRACE, LTD, stars Ben Kingsley, Jimmi Simpson, and the New Mexico landscapes which lend a biblical feel to the series. Epix/MGM

For the New Mexico POV - point of view - read the local press:

We were residents in the town in several scenes shot over two brutally cold days in Las Vegas, NM.

Others are coming. Better Call Saul is in production now. Connie is a Court Clerk in Episode 501 and 504. They are aiming for release this Fall.

Connie is also in two movies, one, Voices, is a short nearly ready for release. The other, an A-list full length movie, is just beginning shooting. Connie has been in one scene so far.

Scary Old Lady . . . did not really have to act. Just be myself.

Three smaller productions are in post-production and will be available on-line. Connie plays “Jamie”, a transgender woman in Green Solutions, Inc., an office comedy. Hands of the Refugee, is a CNM student film where Connie plays a Bar Keep.
