We're building the New Mexico film industry to provide greater career
opportunities for New Mexicans. Here, you'll gain a
greater understanding of the numerous jobs and career paths available in
film. From grips to editors, from carpenters to actors, the industry
offers many possibilities to pursue.
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.
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 and television projects require several crew members and vendors with different specialties to complete a production. Crew organization is very hierarchical.
