The filmmaking industry is thriving here in New Mexico. It's a good source of revenue for the state and many of it's residents. We have our own technicians union - IATSE 480, and Albuquerque Studios. The list of movies and TV series made here is huge, including Oscar winner "No Country For Old Men" and the Emmy winning cable series "Breaking Bad".
Many times the filmmaking process needs to leave the studio and go on location for their film sets. The locations used are sometimes discovered by the location scouts, but some are on a list of available locations. The New Mexico Film Office has instructions on how to list your property as a possible filming location.
