Keith Allen and Felicia Mathias decided to set up their own production company here in New Mexico when they couldn’t play the acting role.

Their big goal was to hire all New Mexico crew members. But they also use it to emphasize business in the state. “It has evolved into the company’s overall purpose of using our platform to uplift small businesses, local businesses,” Allen said. “That’s what we wanted to do at the show, and what was our company’s mission?”
