Albuquerque Film & Music Experience Workshop: From Idea to Greenlight-Making it Happen in New Mexico

In the last decade, New Mexico established itself as a powerful player in film and television, hosting big-budget movies and acclaimed TV series like The Avengers and Breaking Bad. Seasoned crews, varied locations, full-service movie studios, and competitive incentives have ensured that production will continue to come to New Mexico.
Yet, in some ways, the local industry is still at the whim of decision-makers outside the state. We at Blue Sky Producers Lab believe it's time to build a sustainable model for the industry where local creatives drive the content and New Mexico represents more than a backdrop for other people's visions.
For content creators without connections to Hollywood, however, achieving that goal has been elusive, and obtaining the necessary financing and distribution has been the biggest challenge.
This workshop will provide valuable information for screenwriters, producers, and other creatives who want to develop their ideas and package their projects for investment.
