Largest Film in New Mexico History!

It's official!

Marvel's The Avengers is in pre-production and will be shooting in New Mexico through 2011.

While industry estimates vary, the production expenditure is projected to be at least $140 million dollars, making it the largest shoot in the history of New Mexico film.

Productions of this size have a significant impact on our economy. They hire New Mexico crew, use our production services, and cast our talent. They stay at our hotels and furnished homes, eat our food, and shoot our locations.

For several thousand individuals and hundreds of businesses, the economic impact is significant and evidence of how critical film has become to the New Mexico economy.

Be sure to tell our site listees that "You saw them on Crew," and let us know how we can help serve you or your upcoming production. If you're listed on our directory, please be sure your account is current and active.

And, of course, if you have a product, service, skill, or message you want the film world to know about, email us at info@crewnewmexico.com or call (505) 930-0443!
