The Media Arts Program at Eastern New Mexico University-Roswell has received a large financial donation from the giveback provisions of the Refundable Film Production Tax Credit, which requires productions not hiring New Mexico residents as crew to make financial donations to an educational institution or other types of contributions to the state.

Due to that program, Turner North Center Productions, “Monsters of God” pilot in Burbank, California, has contributed $15,000 to the ENMU-R Media Arts Program, the university announced Friday.

Media Arts Coordinator Alan Trever said the donation will be used to purchase updated film equipment and a new camera package.

The Media Arts program offers three tracks, film technology, animation and graphic design.

The program at ENMU-Roswell has resulted in several feature films being shot in southeastern New Mexico, and a film prepared by people associated with the program recently won a “best film” honor at the 48-Hour Film Project of the state of New Mexico. The winning film will now participate in a competition in Paris.
