Crew Training Programs

We support economic development in New Mexico by providing training opportunities to New Mexico below-the-line-crew. Through the Economic Development Department Job Training Incentives Program (JTIP) for film and multimedia, the NMFO supports economic development in New Mexico by providing training opportunities to New Mexico below-the-line crew.

New Mexico Veteran Crew Training Programs

NMFO provides a program for the film and media industry to connect with and hire NM veterans. Operation Soundstage (OSS) is a NM veteran crew training program under the Film Crew Advancement Program (FCAP). This is a fast track program intended for qualifying New Mexicans who are interested in a job in the film and television industry. Veterans who have a transferable skill set and are interested in training to advance in a specific craft department to a higher position are good candidates for this program.

Film Production Chain of Command

Film and television projects require several crew members and vendors with different specialties to complete a production. Crew organization is very hierarchical.
