The independent film “Fatal Mistakes” is picking up a lot of New Mexico talent.
According to the New Mexico Film Office, the production will employ New Mexico crew members, 19 principal actors and 45 background talent.
The film, starring Ashley Scott, tells the story of Caroline, who is heartbroken after separating from her husband, and takes solace in the arms of another man.
It was only one small indiscretion – a brief affair, forgotten after she and her husband reunited.
But beautiful Elle, daughter of Caroline’s lover, hasn’t forgotten.
She rents a guesthouse from Caroline, her husband and teenage son with one purpose: to destroy their lives the way Elle thinks Caroline destroyed hers.
The film is being produced by Viciferous Films LLC and production is taking place in Albuquerque through March.
The feature is directed by Lauro Chartrand and produced by Gilles Laplante.
Local principal crew include Line Producer Rick Metz; Production Designer Chris Hall; Director of Photography David Schweitzer; Art Director Lauren Brazil; and Costume Designer Kim Trujillo.
“We are very excited for our second production in New Mexico. We had such a great experience in December 2016, and found Albuquerque to be a welcoming and film friendly city,” Laplante said. “Everyone we have met and worked with thus far have proven to be highly proficient in their field.”
“We welcome ‘Fatal Mistakes’ to Albuquerque for their filming,” said Mayor Richard Berry. “The film industry continues to be a strong economic impact to our city, providing high-paying and creative jobs to our citizens.”
