We'll demystify the process for you and bring your project in on time and within the budget.
Martineztown -- Neighborhood at a Crossroads
The Martineztown neighborhood, located in the heart of Albuquerque, has seen more history than most places in the United States. From its time as an ancient crossroads for Native Americans to its place as a stopover over on the Camino Real, to its near destruction by a misguided urban renewal project in the 70s, it's always been at the center of the action. Now with a new designated National Historic Trail running through it, M-Town is poised for a revival. Watch the video here.
The History of Albuquerque's Open Space
This documentary traces the tradition of Albuquerque's love and reverence for open space, from prehistoric Native American wanderers, to Spanish land grant owners, to environmentalist Aldo Leopold, to the activists of the 60s and 70s who fought to preserve citizens' access to the mountains, rivers, volcanoes and bosque. The result? More open space per capita than anywhere in the country. Click here to watch.
Morani River Preserve Reintroduction Project
The Stewards of Wildlife and the Morani River Preserve in the Texas Hill Country are doing their part to preserve endangered and threatened animals from around the world in hopes of reintroducing them to their native habitats. This video documents the work of ranchers and biologists to sustain a herd of dama gazelles for eventual reintroduction to Africa. Click here to watch the video. Music by Andy Othling and Lowercase Noises. Wildlife photographs by Chris Mungall.
Sleeping Monsters, Sacred Fires: Volcanoes of New Mexico
I wrote and produced "Sleeping Monsters" for KNME-TV's award-winning "Colores!" series. See some amazing cinematography from John Golden Britt and learn about the volcanoes that decorate New Mexico's landscape. The film features breathtaking examples of volcanism that span the state. But volcanoes have created more than stunning terrain. Over time, they planted the seeds of civilization and shaped the identity of New Mexico and its people. Click here to watch the film.
Construction Sight: A Stop on the Rio Grande
One of the first pieces I produced for the City of Albuquerque's Public Art Program, "Construction Sight" focuses on artist John Davis and the inspiration -- and perspiration -- involved in completing his latest piece, "A Stop on the Rio Grande." Click here to watch the film.
Antoine Predock: Earth Meets Sky
While at KNME-TV, shooter John Golden Britt and I created a trailer for a proposed piece on renowned Albuquerque architect, Antoine Predock. We are still trying to obtain funding for the full-length documentary, but this trailer has been seen by thousands online and at various exhibitions and openings. Click to view the Trailer
Public Art series
One of the most interesting projects I produced for the City of Albuquerque Public Art program was a series on how to win and complete a public art commission. I scripted a 10-part series and working with shooter/editor Charles "Bazz" McClain and actress Angela Littleton, we created what we hope will be a fun and informative resource for artists interested in tackling the process. Due to funding shortfalls, we have not been able to shoot the entire series. But here's a look at three of the completed episodes. (Oops, hope to have them posted soon.)

Through the efforts of Suzanne Sbarge of 516 Arts, Andrea Polli of UNM and a host of others, Albuquerque landed the prestigious ISEA conference. The event explores the intersection of art, science and technology and seeks ways to protect our natural world in the future. I produced this trailer on deadline with my ace editor Blaise Koller to help promote the event. Click here to watch.

Max Evans mini-profile for the 2011 Luminaria Awards
In 2010, I came up with the idea to honor New Mexicans in the film industry with the Luminaria Awards as part of the Albuquerque Little Theatre's Oscar Night extravaganza. Working with Digital Arts and Technology Academy students Harrison Sim and Martin Montano-Pilch, and producer Nancy Baca, we created five short profiles to celebrate that year's honorees. This one features noted western writer and bon vivant, Max Evans, who helped kickstart the New Mexico film biz in the '60s. Other honorees that year included Debra Anderson, Lisa Strout, Ann Lerner and Billy Ray. Click on the name to see their videos.
