New Mexico short film, Good Guys With Guns , to commence filming in Albuquerque, New Mexico on March 1st 2017.

Good Guys With Guns is a short film outlining the dangers of civilians
carrying firearms in a cris is situation.   Produced by Albuquerque production company Shadmeister Productions, the film utilizes an almost entirely New Mexican cast and crew and some of New Mexico’s greatest talent in front of and behind the camera. The film is to be shot in Los Lunas New Mexico. This is truly a community collaboration.

The producers wish to thank the New Mexico Film Office, The Los Lunas City Government, Our Sponsors, Our crowd funding contributors, and the New Mexico film making community.
The proliferation of gun violence in this country is out of control. As filmmakers, we believe we have a responsibility to help change the culture of violence through storytelling. Good Guys With Guns shows how arming every citizen to act on their own to be heroes can go horribly wrong.

Synopsis:  During an armed robbery of a convenience store in an open-carry state, too many would-be heroes take it upon themselves to save the day. But in critical Rashomon-style perspective, no one knows who the other good guys are, which culminates into a bloody battle between strangers.
