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 700,000 views to more than 400 videos on his YouTube channel (HYMIEHYMIE) and some 70,000 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=DcHQzb...)
