Santa Fe, NM (PRWEB) February 03, 2014
Local author Louise Spencer and publishing partner Sutro Media today announced that SantaFeFilms: The Movie & Book Lovers Guide to NM Locations, a movie and popular culture themed app, is now available for iPhone, iPad, and Android platforms. This pop-culture tourism app, the first of its kind to highlight Northern New Mexico, gives visitors a chance to see Santa Fe and its sights from a less traditional perspective by highlighting locations made famous in movies, books and television.
New Mexico has enjoyed a century-long film industry including a list of over 600 film productions. Among the many entries in the app are familiar titles such as award-winning films NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN, CRAZY HEART and TRUE GRIT, cult classics TWO-LANE BLACKTOP and BILLY JACK as well as critically acclaimed and best-selling novels RED SKY AT MORNING, UNDER THE COLOR OF LAW, THUNDERHEAD, EXTREME DENIAL and TV dramas THE SUNSET LTD., COMANCHE MOON and GEORGIA O’KEEFFE.
Over 100 Santa Fe locations with literary and film connections are featured in the new app, including such well-known spots as The Cathedral, Canyon Rd., The Santa Fe Opera, Garson Studios, the Ski Basin, Museum Hill and the lesser-visited Bonanza Creek Road, Buckman Wash, NM State Penitentiary, La Bajada Rest Area and Santa Fe University of Art and Design’s Moving Images Art Dept. to name just a few.
“I’m thrilled that visitors will get a chance to explore Santa Fe in a new way with this digital tool,” says the app’s author Louise Spencer. “Developing SantaFeFilms: The Movie & Book Lovers Guide to NM Locations has taken several years, many modifications and a lot of trial and error but it’s finally available.”
App users can easily map their own “mini-tour” of the spots that interest them most, browse the 800+ photos depicting Santa Fe for spots to visit, and link to official websites, film trailers and clips from feature films and TV shows shot in the Santa Fe area.
The app, developed and authored by Santa Fe resident and veteran movie industry publicist Louise Spencer, and published in association with Sutro Media (http://www.sutromedia.com) is currently available for iPhone and iPad at the iTunes Store and on Google Play for Android devices. Voted one of the Top 10 Brilliant Companies in Travel by Entrepreneur magazine, Sutro Media, with over 450 travel apps, is a leader in the world of smartphone tourism apps.
