First Native American-Owned Film Studio Shoots Tom Hanks Movie

first_imgLocated in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains in northern New Mexico, the beautiful plot of Tesque Pueblo land has now been the backdrop for over 20 films that needed its rolling desert hills, including Cowboy and The Man from Laramie.CHECK OUT: After Making History With New Film Studio, Tyler Perry to Build a Shelter for Disadvantaged Women and ChildrenThe Pueblo of Tesuque Development Corporation has invested $50 million in expanding the facilities at Camel Rock Studios to include a movie ranch with standing sets, prop studios, a filming-equipped water tank, and 1,000 parking spots, which anyone who has been part of a movie production would agree is a huge plus.Photo by Camel Rock Studios“Casinos, inherently, if you take out all the games, are big empty spaces,” Timothy Brown president and CEO of the Pueblo of Tesuque Development Corporation told Variety. “So we had an events center that we did concerts in and large parties that was a big vacant space. Once we removed all the casino equipment and furniture from the casino area, that became another large vacant space, and then with any business we had an entire administrative area with cubicles and offices that became perfect for their offices to move in.”RELATED: Finally, a Native Californian Tribe Has Land To Call Their OwnAlong with Hollywood’s enduring love of western films, Camel Rock and the Tesque Pueblo Nation are looking to take advantage of a filming boom in New Mexico, with recent successes behind shows like Breaking Bad luring more projects to the area.“You don’t realize it but this area looks like a lot of places in the world…especially the Middle-East, with the mountains and how rugged it is,” Brown added, explaining the Tribe’s thinking.Netflix even made Albuquerque its U.S. production hub, purchasing Albuquerque Studios as part of a plan to spend $100 million in filming and production for original material in the state over the next 10 years.MORE: One of Largest Native American Tribes Just Voted to End Their 100-Year Dependency on CoalPueblo of Tesuque Governor Robert Mora, Sr. said that he hopes the economic benefit from the studio will go toward much-needed healthcare projects for the Tribe, such as a universal coverage option.“The other thing I’m hoping is that one of the big film companies will find a good home here so they’re not searching for locations.

first_imgSOUTH AFRICA – Cape Town – 19 July 2019 – Stock – Vangate Mall – Lovely and vibrant little mall in Athlone. Entire Food court is halaal. Main shops are spar, pick n pay, Edgars, Woolworths. Free parking and conveniently close to Cape Town CBD and Cape Town International Airport. Front facade. Picture: Tracey Adams/African News Agency (ANA) A pensioner collapsed and died while walking to Vangate Mall to collect his pension last Monday. Police are now urging seniors not to exert themselves during the coronavirus (Covid-19) lockdown. The 75-year-old man was going to the mall to collect his pension and do some shopping when he collapsed and died, according to Athone police spokeswoman Sergeant Zita Norman. An inquest docket was opened. “We urge pensioners to take care during this time; it is very stressful so if they have someone who can collect their grants for them or drive them to where they need to be it would help. Pensioners must try to not exhaust themselves during this time,” she said. Meanwhile, pensioners queued outside the mall in the cold from as early as 5am last Monday after the Social Development Minister Lindiwe Zulu said pensions would be available from March 30 to 31 to alleviate overcrowding. All other social grants were to be paid, as per schedule, on April 1.Mia May accompanied her 63-year-old aunt, Avril May, to Vangate Mall Pick * Pay to collect her pension. She said the queue had snaked into the parking lot as pensioners had seized the chance to collect their grants earlier and do some shopping. Mia said her efforts to help her aunt had been in vain as a manager had stopped her going inside with aunt as she wasn’t a senior.“I told him that I am accompanying my aunt like I usually do every month as she cannot carry her groceries, and he said no I have to wait outside. Pensioners were getting so annoyed as they were standing in the cold for hours.”Then, after two hours, staff had brought trolleys for the seniors to lean against as their legs were getting tired and sore from standing, she said.“They knew pensioners were coming so why were they not prepared for this? I hope that as this lockdown continues that they come up with a better plan.”Vangate Mall did not respond to questions by the time this edition went to print.last_img read more

Kenai River Subsistence Net To Get Hearing, Limits For 2017

first_imgPeltola: “Within existing federal regulations there were a couple of conflicts, one is the federal subsistence program assimilated the State of Alaska’s bank access closures, in addition to their slot limits for retention of certain species which may be encountered in a gillnet.” The public hearing will be hosted by the U.S. Department of the Interior at the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge on February 24 from 5:30-7:30pm. The fishery was classified as “experimental” for 2016, since it is operating under suspended rules to access the Kenai River along sections of the bank which are typically closed to foot traffic. In 2016, the Council used the net to harvest 723 sockeye, 12 coho salmon, six pink salmon, two Dolly Varden, one king salmon, and one whitefish. The Council has met with the FSB several times over the winter to discuss proposed limits for the fishery, such as closing the program after the net catches 100 rainbow trout, whether the trout are harvested or released. Similar limits were proposed for Dolly Varden and king salmon.center_img The new fishery has frustrated existing sports, commercial, and personal use fishermen in the already-crowded Kenai River fisheries. Peltola says the state must make room for the federal subsistence fishery. FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享A meeting will be held February 24 to discuss the future of the Ninilchik Traditional Council’s subsistence net in the Kenai River. The net program was approved by the Federal Subsistence Board in August 2016 and was fished for about two weeks that year. Eugene Peltola Jr. with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service says the decision was made to allow the fishery, despite multiple conflicts…last_img read more

Club take important steps to sign Man United youngster – Chiefs…

Tuttosport explains Antonio Conte’s side are interested in taking Tahith Chong, whose contract with the Red Devils expires in the summer.The 20-year-old featured against the Nerazzurri during the pre-season fixture and the newspaper explains he ‘impressed’ the leaders of the Italian club.It’s claimed Chong was supposed to have an explosive season at United, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has not given him opportunities after the Dutchman decided not to sign an extension.Many top clubs are after the wideman, but Inter have taken important steps over December and January by meeting his representative on several occasions.With Conte preferring a 3-5-2 formation, Tuttosport believe Chong may struggle to adapt to the former Chelsea manager’s style at the San Siro. Inter’s idea is to beat competition for Chong’s signing and send him out on loan to Jiangsu Suning for the first season and then loan him out to a mid-table Italian club in the second season to test him in Serie A.Earlier reports in Italy said Juventus have withdrawn any interest, and that Inter were shocked by Chong’s initial wage Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameWill You Build The Most Beautiful City?Forge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoSmart Tech TrendOver 50?
