ARTICLE ABOUT THE FILM IN LOCAL E-NEWSLETTER, 9-6-16

     Las Vegas, NM has been the locale for so many films and
TV shows for decades that some degree of
“jadedness” has reportedly set in among residents
asked to participate as background “extras” and in
other ways.
     But local video producer Jim Terr reports no lack of
support for his feature-length film, “A Chicken in
Every Garage,” currently nearing completion with
the recent shooting of the opening scene at Charlie’s
Bakery.
     The film title is a melding of two famous Depression
era slogans, “A Chicken in Every Pot” and “A Car in
Every Garage.” The film is based on Terr’s run in the
US Presidential Pre-Primary in Arizona in 2012. (Terr
reports that he got 59 votes, “not the worst showing of
all the candidates”), and that he participated mainly with
the making of the current film in mind.
     The film has evolved to include themes of mystery,
psychology, and much music -- including by local
performers – and also includes many local scenes
and scenery. Terr currently has a campaign
on www.GoFundMe.com for completion funding –
urgent, he says, since the movie pokes fun at Donald
Trump and needs to be released before the November 8
election. The film also includes elements of his
“Romaine Fielding at the Plaza Hotel” series of stories
and videos, featured at www.TentaclesFilm.com .
    The opening scene shot at Charlie’s Spic N Span
starred Santa Fe film union head Jon Hendry as a
psychiatrist speaking to a local civic club about the
story’s main character, who has been in a coma for
years but with very full brain activity, perhaps
imaginary and perhaps based on real experience.
Hendry also donated t-shirts commemorating Las
Vegas’ 100 years of film history, as premiums for
those participating in the project.
     Terr friend and associate Gerald Fried of Santa Fe,
composer of hundreds of Emmy-winning and Oscar-nominated
movie and TV scores including “Roots”
and “Star Trek,” has offered the use of some of his
film music for the project, which Terr says is not
only an honor but a great budget help as well.
    Terr has produced over a thousand videos which
have gained over 1.5 million views on
www.YouTube.com , including several promoting
Las Vegas with tens of thousands of views.

JIM TERR FOR PRESIDENT
Santa Fe Entertainer Backs Campaign With Film Project

Jim Terr – arguably New Mexico’s best kept secret – is not a person to be deterred by lack of attention from the entertainment industry. Instead, and backed with self-perpetuated shameless publicity, he moves from one project to another.

Boasting over one million views on almost 800 videos on his YouTube channel (JAIMEJAIME) and some 8,000 Google citations, alongside appearances on a multitude of national TV and radio outlets, the Santa Fe based entertainer is nothing less than one-man industry.

Perhaps best known as a singer/songwriter, he also stacks up credits as record producer, filmmaker, actor (recently filmed in the Dutch independent production Jackie starring Holly Hunter), political satirist and bona fide US presidential candidate in the Arizona primary, February 28, drawing #2 spot on the ballot, ahead of Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney, Ron Paul and the other nominees (www.JTAmerica.com).

Since videotaping his experiences on campaign trail, and writing songs as always, Terr decided to combine all these interests and opportunities into a feature film about a singer/songwriter kidnapped on a USO tour in the Mid-East, hypnotized by a mysterious organization to carry out a "Manchurian Candidate" style mission, then returned to his normal routine of music and politics - and a political campaign - while waiting for the trap to be released.

Co-star is Suhail Aldabbach, remembered for his memorable role as the remorseful suicide bomber in the 2010 Oscar "Best Picture" “The Hurt Locker”. He is now a (refugee) resident of New Mexico, and he and Terr have teamed up on several prospective feature projects. Aldabbach is set to have a featured role in Oscar winning director Kathryn Bigelow's next project – the yet to be named account of the hunt for Osama Bin Laden – so he will have an even higher profile soon.

Also having a key role in the Terr project is rotund country singer BuDDy, with cameo appearances by humorist Dave Barry, journalist James Fallows, NPR host Scott Simon, "Firesign Theater" co-founder Phil Proctor and others. Intended as a very low-budget production most likely destined to go directly to DVD and download, Jim Terr (in common with so many prospective independent film producers) is currently seeking out interested investors. He hopes that with the frustration of the political season, this coming summer, the intended summer release, and a compelling plot, and lots of music and good soundtrack CD, will make the project a success.

A trailer for the film can be seen on YouTube (“Reluctant Candidate – trailer demo” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x3dqWlx-Zmc )

Feature film to include footage from campaign trail!


Includes footage from our televised debates
(see end in particular..)


(6 minutes only, this segment)
Not surprisingly, the Arizona legislature just ended this practice,
making ours the last such debate!!

Ads placed in Arizona papers (Terr increases campaign expenditures by 1,000%!)
 


Official results: Got 57 votes, about 1/5,000th as many as Mr. Romney.
Two candidates got less than I did, which takes the edge off a bit. I'll be OK. God bless the "57"

MY PLEDGE TO YOU: facebook, too, tambien

Terr Tied with Top GOP Condenders in Arizona Race!!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arizona_Republican_primary,_2012

"Let's cut the pious baloney!"  -Mitt Gingrich


"There is no position on which people are so immovable as their religious
beliefs. There is no more powerful ally one can claim in a debate than
Jesus Christ, or God, or Allah, or whatever one calls this supreme
being. But like any powerful weapon, the use of God's name on one's
behalf should be used sparingly. The religious factions that are
growing throughout our land are not using their religious clout with
wisdom. They are trying to force government leaders into following
their position 100 percent. If you disagree with these religious groups
on a particular moral issue, they complain, they threaten you with a
loss of money or votes or both. I'm frankly sick and tired of the
political preachers across this country telling me as a citizen that if
I want to be a moral person, I must believe in 'A,' 'B,' 'C,' and 'D.'
Just who do they think they are? And from where do they presume to
claim the right to dictate their moral beliefs to me? And I am even
more angry as a legislator who must endure the threats of every
religious group who thinks it has some God-granted right to control my
vote on every roll call in the Senate. I am warning them today:
I will fight them every step of the way if they try to dictate their
moral convictions to all Americans in the name of 'conservatism.' "
--Senator Barry Goldwater, 1981

Jim Terr – presidential campaign platform 2012

I’m Jim Terr. I’ve been a proud Republican all my life. Just like I’ve been a proud resident of Arizona all my life.

Terr – pronounced as in “termite.” The meaning and ethnic origin is unknown. But of course we in Arizona don’t care about that. We care about a person’s inner worth, their willingness to play hard and work by the rules. I mean work hard and play by the rules. Inner worth, I’ve got a lot of that.

When my parents or maybe it was my grandparents, came here, this was just a dusty desert filled with a few cactus and a few so-called Native Americans. They built this up to the thriving, sprawling water-sucking paradise that it is today, where people of all kinds live together in peace and harmony.

I have that same vision for America. Won’t you join me? This is a people’s campaign. In fact I don’t even want to run. But people from all over America said “Mitt, will you run?” (Somehow his e-mail account was diverted to mine for about 36 hours, but it got me to thinking…)

Of course I should run. America needs me. I’ve got nothing better to do between now and November. Maybe I’ll win. I know I can count on the support of the little people. In fact, I’m not going to accept contributions of anything greater than $25,000 per individual or family or corporation. Actual campaign contribution limits may even smaller than that. So you see, this is about you, about taking America back.

Back from the Obamas, from the Lockheeds, from the Wall Streets, from the Bushes, the Rockefellers, the Illuminati and the Bilderbergs. Let’s return it to the Garcias, the Terrs, the Joneses. (Are there any Joneses anymore?) The Washingtons, the Lincolns, the Jeffersons. Where ARE the Washingtons, the Lincolns, the Jeffersons, today? I’ll tell you where, they’re all playing professional basketball. That’s an old joke I’ve always loved.

This campaign isn’t about being politically correct, so you’d better get used to it. It’s not about appealing to the most far-right, ignorant, fundamentalist xenophobes in Iowa, in order to win a caucus and show how far-right, ignorant, fundamentalist and xenophobic I am. It’s about appealing to the most far-right, ignorant, fundamentalist xenophobes in the great state of Arizona, because I know we represent the best America has to offer; we embody a vision of what America can be again.

Those who say America was never meant to be a Christian country, I say let them prove it. Where are the documents? Where is the birth certificate of this so-called Thomas Jefferson, this so-called George Washington? I think a lot of Americans need to just shut up and let nature take its course. Let me run this place. Give Jim Terr a chance to steal from you!

If nominated I will not run, and if elected I will not serve. That is my solemn promise to you. I will issue shriveling indictments of any candidate or incumbent – for any office – who does not reject and eschew our current rotten system of private – and now, unlimited and secret corporate – contributions to election campaigns. I could make many more specific promises but we all know they are forgotten when you get in that presidential hot seat, so who are we kidding? I promise to do my best, and consult with my trusted circle of Wall Street advisers at every critical juncture.

In the coming weeks I’ll be sharing more about myself, and my vision of an America returned to its rightful owners. The corporations. That’s who knows how to run America like a business. Which is what our Founders intended. Of course corporations are human. It’s people I wonder about.

Together, we can work together for a better America. At least for me. Won’t you join me? Together we can take America back. Way back. God bless us all in this mighty endeavor.  

As God is my witness.
Jim Terr
Anno domini 2012, January 3.

USA Today:

Jon Huntsman, a former Utah governor, is the only major Republican contender
to fail to make Arizona's ballot. His campaign has vowed to challenge the
decision of the Secretary of State's Office to reject his nomination form because it did not
include a properly notarized original signature of the candidate.

The office also has certified six candidates to appear on the ballot of the Green Party,
the only other recognized political party taking part in the presidential primary.

Here is the official Republican lineup, in order:

Donald Benjamin.

"Foreign-speaking" New Mexicans sought for phone-in roles in forthcoming film

The “consortium” sequence of the film, “A Chicken In Every Garage” (one of the last and few scenes yet to be shot), is a conference call wherein representatives of families and groups from around the world invest in the properties (songs, movies, inventions, etc.) of the main character, who lies in a coma, and whose reality and history is not totally clear to the viewer (nor the investors!) Nonetheless, almost a billion dollars is pledged to this syndicate, to develop and claim a major share of proceeds from these properties.

The languages and countries of those involved in the conference call will be India, South Africa, Nigeria, Mexico – and Chinese, French, Arabic, Russian, Hindi, Japanese and others. Spanish and Arabic are already strongly represented in the film in the opening scene and in scenes involving Suhail Dabbach , famed as “The Black Suit Man” (reluctant suicide bomber) in the 2008 Oscar™ Best Picture, “The Hurt Locker.”

If you are a native speaker of one of these languages (as well as fluent in English) and are interested in participating, please click here to get information by email (9-29-16). Thank you! Age 20+ preferred, but not firm.
