“We can do all genres of film here in New Mexico, but historically, and presently, a standout genre for our state is westerns. From animal wrangling and weapon handling to western movie ranches to authentic desert landscapes, New Mexico offers the ultimate wish list for the Western genre, and you can’t find more beautiful light and sunsets” said Amber Dodson, Director, New Mexico Film Office.
