It is not easy working or going to school full-time and committing to an additional 30 hours of training, in something new, for two weeks. But everybody in PROTEC did an amazing job completing their training in January and are now fully engaged in the developing a film about the New Mexico Volunteers who fought in the Battle of Glorieta 155 years ago. For the last month PROTEC graduates have met every Friday to work with Director/DP Doug Crawford, Historian Dr. Steve Martinez and Social Media expert Kendra Arnold to make the documentary film they are envisioning a reality.

As the weeks roll from development, to pre-production, to shooting on location and editing we will keep you posted on the individual journeys of these amazing 19 Santa Fe County residents and their commitment to telling this important story from New Mexico's history.

Very little has been shared about the Battle of Glorieta, which is dubbed the "Gettysburg of the West" and the participation of the New Mexico residents who fought on the side of the Union Army in 1862. You can follow the progress of the film on Battle of Glorieta Pass FaceBook page.

To see how the recent graduates spent their 30 hours at Santa Fe Community College check out this video.
