New Mexicans Training for New Mexican Jobs
February 1st, 2020
At the Capitol Building, Santa Fe, New Mexico on Environment Day, Tuesday, January 28th. Holy Smokes: Project Film lobbies at the capital for sustainable filmmaking during the 2nd session of the 54th legislature. We enjoyed talking with the environmentalists, who were very interested in our project.
Everybody deserves an equal opportunity to recognize and pursue their dreams. A career that a person has a passion for improves their mind, body, and spirit. Earning a decent salary also enhances the quality of a person’s life, and the money goes back into the community via spending, thus supporting other businesses allowing them to grow and flourish.
Film is the ultimate collaborative industry, and HSPF plans to grow it through education by teaching the soft-skills necessary to work on a film set through hands-on classes and real-life experience on film sets.
HSPF currently has a pilot program locked in for the Fall of 2021. The students, parents, and educators alike are enthusiastic about our pilot program. The HSPF Program will focus on below the line job opportunities through running a full-fledged film set to create 30-sec shorts and gain set hours to have the chance to join the local 480 and work towards credits to other unions within the film industry. EG: SAG-AFTRA, local 600, teamsters unions, etc.
HSPF will be in attendance at the capitol for Indigenous Day (aka American Indian Day) on February 7th, where we will be lobbying for access to filmmaking for indigenous peoples of New Mexico. On Media Day, February 10th, we are promoting filmmaking education for all New Mexicans with the students and educators of Bernalillo High School in attendance urging legislators to fund the future we need.
To help fund HSPF or learn how to get involved as a vendor to film, as an indigenous filmmaker looking to teach or to see how HSPF can collaborate with a school near you, please contact Nadine Nagamatsu at 917-509-3752 or email at email@example.com
