From the NM Film Office Site:

New Mexican Short Film Wins Best of Show

Fear No Film Festival

Contact: Don Gray,;

Santa Fe, July 13, 2008- “Things We Do For Love” wins the “Best of Show” Grand Jury Prize as well as an “Audience Favorite” award at the 2008 “Fear No FIlm Festival” in Salt Lake City, Utah.

“Things We Do For Love” was written and directed by New Mexican filmmaker Don Gray. The short film was shot in conjunction with the NM Film Technician Training Program at Northern New Mexico College in El Rito.

“Things We Do For Love” is a short film about how far one family is willing to go to show their love for one another. Set in a small mining town in Northern New Mexico - coffins, fresh graves and a parade of odd funerals provide the backdrop for one family’s affection. In the end, why shouldn’t a funeral brighten someone’s day after all?

The film was shot over a period of five days in the communities of El Rito, Ojo Caliente and Abiquiu, New Mexico.

“This award is very gratifying for me and for those who worked so hard to help me make it...” said Gray, “... and its proof that homegrown filmmaking is alive and well in New Mexico”
