New Mexico Film isn’t in just one territory or confined to one metropolis. From Cuba to Silver City and everywhere in between, New Mexico film workers reside.

Neighboring states are clamoring to keep-up and nationwide industry reports name NM time and time again as the state to beat.

The Hollywood Reporter notes, “third only to California and New York in the number of skilled crewmembers locally available…”, New Mexico is handily holding its own with resources at the ready for YOUR NM FILM.

Coming soon from Western New Mexico University’s school of Applied Technology, Central New Mexico Community College, IATSE Local 480 and the Silver City/Grant County Chamber of Commerce, is a promotional video collaborative showcasing the state’s southwest region film resources, locations and film related education programs, as detailed here in the Las Cruces Sun News.

For your convenience in reference here are the latest links to NM City and County Film Commissions, Competitive State Film Incentive and New Mexico State film based education programs (TBA).

Video of the day: Cranston at bat edition

Posted by on May 10, 2012 | Comments Off on Video of the day: Cranston at bat edition

Jump to 1:20 for the flag that New Mexico state government is flying to say, “GO AWAY” to film jobs.

In a poor state whose leader endorses corporate loopholes over local business, whose political action committee is funded primarily by another state’s special interests, the vilification of one of the most hopeful, vibrant and sustainable industries ever built here, rolls on.

It’s become standard practice for this administration to spit balk in the face of local film talent and support businesses, and now the slow bloodletting has a new face and a name.


Flying in the face of the world is, in a name, “a New Mexico film study“. A better face for the promotion and growth of the state’s economy is and always has been Mr. Bryan Cranston.

The majority of the WORLD is unaware of New Mexico and those who have heard of us think we’re part of South America; except for the several MILLION who have been exposed to our previously top ranked spot in the good ol’ U.S-of-A for film production.

Talking directly to the point of what brought just one, globally acclaimed, beloved television production into our midst and our small business, tourism, talent, education and charitable organization bank accounts is the one and only Bryan Cranston of Breaking Bad.

So while our government shells out some absurd amount of time and money on a tailored hex upon our film industry, productions will continue to go away and the obvious will be stated elsewhere.

UNLESS YOU SPEAK-UP and SPEAK OUT New Mexico! Cranston & Co. can’t do it all…

Rocky Mountain aims to High-tail away with NM film prospects

Posted by on May 10, 2012 | Comments Off on Rocky Mountain aims to High-tail away with NM film prospects

The Colorado State Senate has passed incentive legislation doubling rebates for film production.

From the Denver Post: (click for full article)

Colorado’s 10 percent film incentive program was one of the weakest, especially when compared to 25 percent incentive programs in neighboring New Mexico, Wyoming and Utah. (New Mexico’s 25 percent incentive has lured 159 major productions in the past nine years, stirring almost $4 billion in economic impact and paying out $253 million in rebates, according to the New Mexico Film Office.)

While New Mexico’s reigning administration is angling to drag out multi-year “study” of State Film Incentives impact, today Deadline reports that a study released by Ernest & Young shows that state film incentive programs are good for local economies.
