Sandia Productions has started principal photography of Blaze You Out, a dramatic thriller, in Rio Arriba County in New Mexico.
This marks the first feature produced by former Disney executive Alicia Keyes Touche.
Mateo Frazier and Diego Joaquin Lopez co-wrote and direct.
The cast features Veronica Diaz-Carranza and Melissa Cordero alongside Elizabeth Pena, Jeremy Ray Valdez, Raoul Trujillo, Mark Adair Rios and Q’orianka Kilcher.
The story is about an aspiring DJ who is drawn into dark underworld of the Esperanza Valley after her sister’s disappearance.
The production will take advantage of New Mexico’s 25% tax credit.
“We’re excited to be a part of a new wave of filmmakers who are unearthing contemporary stories that draw from the rich culture and history of New Mexico,” said Keyes Touche. “The three of us are a product of the support our State and legislature has shown toward film. We feel blessed to be able to live, work and create in New Mexico. “
Peter Touche of Sandia Media is executive producing, co-producers are by Brent Morris and O’Shea Read, and associate producer is Kerith Lemon.
