ALBUQUERUE (KRQE) - From actors to production crews, talent is not hard to find in New Mexico and neither are filming locations.
However, navigating the entertainment industry in the Land of Enchantment is not always well, enchanting.
"They can also ask you to do things that you didn't sign on to do and then you are in a bad situation cause you already said you would do it," said Carrisa Mitchell, Owner of Applause Talent.
Mitchell said while most of the projects in New Mexico are legitimate shady and questionable ones are out there and able to lure talent.
"Their desire to perform and be in a production sort of can overtake their sniffing or vetting out whether its a good project or not and there is nobody to ask," she said.
A new Facebook page for the group called "Watch E. Dog NM Film Industry" though is looking to make it easier for those in the state's film industry to find out what is good and what is not.
The group that created the page said their goal is not to to run people out of town but rather, "when our readers are wary or vulnerable in their dealings with New Mexico productions, entities and/or organizations, we do want to hear about that and help out where we can."
People in the industry can submit their experiences anonymously through an email address.
The idea is to gather all the experiences and then distribute the information so they can protect their peers and co-workers from unsavory projects and people.
"I think it's a wonderful resource to have especially for actors that are just starting out and they don't have an agent representing them or someone they can call and ask if its a legitimate project," Mitchell said.
That being said Mitchell said even this page should not be the sole source of information but rather every actor should really do their homework before going to any casting call or walking onto any set.
