CRUCES CREATIVES·FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 2018
Local makerspace spotlights community artists and creatives.
LAS CRUCES, SEPTEMBER 21, 2018 --The Cruces Creatives makerspace is proud to announce that it has begun production on a new documentary web series, “Maker Docs,” which highlights local artisans and creators. The episodes will be released over the course of the next year.
While the series will feature members of the makerspace, it will not be limited to them. Lea Wise-Surguy, Executive Director of Cruces Creatives and a Producer on the project spoke about the series. “Making things is a fascinating and intrinsic part of the human condition and we’re excited to share the stories of the talented and skilled creators in our community.”
The team at the Makerspace has tapped Micah Pearson, a local author, artist, and community advocate to write and direct the series in his directorial debut. The pilot has completed principal photography and is currently in post production with additional episodes to be filmed in the coming weeks. The first four episodes will be released online on a regular schedule to be announced at a later date, with the following episodes to be released as they are completed.
The film series is a part of a larger initiative by the makerspace called “Meet the Makers.” The goal of the program is to raise awareness around the skilled and creative talents living within Las Cruces and its surrounding territories through promotional materials and events such as their inaugural Heritage Festival held earlier in the year.
More information regarding the makerspace, their “Meet the Makers” initiative, and their numerous educational programs can be found on their website (https://crucescreatives.org) or their social media pages (https://facebook.com/crucescreatives, https://instagram.com/crucescreatives).
