Albuquerque: The Unknown



In May of 2007, Sony Pictures Imageworks announced the opening of a satellite facility in Albuquerque, New Mexico that could take advantage of tax incentives offered by the state government.

Once in motion, employees of all tenure, and from many parts of the world, began moving to Albuquerque. Most knew absolutely nothing about the area. This is the story of the first forty employees who took the leap, and how they have come to experience the city of Albuquerque, and New Mexico.

I thought this was a very nice mini-doc... and my buddy Jacques makes a brief appearance as well!

I have always wondered why animation studios constantly set up in the same spots in North America....Toronto and Vancouver, LA and NY......why not Albuquerque? Or Hamilton, Kitchener, Saint John etc. etc....
Lower operating expenses for the company and better quality of life for the workers. Keep your talent and grow together....really cool documentary, thanks for posting.
