FCAP is an incentive for production companies to help create more job opportunities for New Mexican film and television crew professionals. A production company is reimbursed 50% of a participant’s wages for up to 1040 hours physically worked by the qualifying crew member in a specialized craft position. This on-the-job training program is in addition to the 25% film production tax rebate.
As an example, a New Mexican Grip who is ready to move up to the Best Boy position and has no credits as a Best Boy or only one credit as a Best Boy from a film or television project (that had a budget over one million) would qualify. The Key Grip would be that crew member’s mentor.
Fill out the Film Production Company Registration Form (if you have already applied for the 25% Tax Rebate or Film Investment Loan program and have already filled out this form, please skip to Step Two).
As soon as the production has opened offices in New Mexico, submit the FCAP Application Part I and NM W-9 form to the NMFO Workforce Development Programs Manager via or email to Sr. Manager of Operations and Workforce Development Programs, Rochelle Bussey.
