Incentives

Production is temporarily halted in New Mexico due to COVID-19.  The health safety of our citizens and workforce is of paramount importance, and the Governor has not yet green-lit a date for safe production resumption.  When production resumes, the New Mexico Film Office will release recommendations that have been shaped by local film industry experts and are in alignment with the AMPTP’s “Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force Proposed Health and Safety Guidelines for Motion Picture, Television, Streaming Productions During the COVID-19 Pandemic”.  All updates will be posted here on our website and we appreciate your consideration of New Mexico – we look forward to working with you soon. 

Named the inaugural HotSpot of 2020 by Deadline Hollywood, New Mexico is where it’s at.  Along with our world-class crew base, diverse locations and competitive incentive, we will continue to be a premier production hub and continue to grow into an end-to-end production ecosystem. 

If you have a project that you would like to bring to New Mexico, please work with Morgan Earnshaw so we can gather your contact information and reach out to you as soon as we are open for production.  In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us should you need anything.  We look forward to working with you.
