Clint Eastwood was at Ruiz Tires in Las Cruces not too long ago to film “The Mule.” Vigo Mortensen was in a Picacho Hills back yard to film scenes in "Captain Fantastic." Jackie Cruz delivered a package outside of COAS bookstore in downtown Las Cruces during the filming of "All the World is Sleeping."
Your home or commercial property might be next, because Film Las Cruces (FLC) is looking to build its database of potential filming locations throughout Las Cruces and Doña Ana County.
There is no charge to be included in the database.
If you already have pictures of the property you would like to have included, email them to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can call 575-805-3456 or send an email to that address with questions.
FLC’s searchable online locations database is what productions filming in the area use when exploring locations for film, television or commercial production, FLC said in a news release.
FLC has expanded the locations database to include picture cars.
“The film and television industry is always looking to hire vehicles, in all conditions, all time periods, nice cars and ugly cars – all kinds,” FLC said in the news release. The only real criteria to include a vehicle in the database is “that it should run,” FLC said.
Vehicle listings are free and may be included on FLC’s Facebook page.
Email photos of vehicle(s) you would like to have placed in the database, including year, make and model, to email@example.com.
MovieMaker Magazine Editor-in-Chief Tim Molloy has kind words for Las Cruces.
“The rise of the Albuquerque/Santa Fe corridor is one of the most incredible movie and TV industry stories of the last decade, and we're also intrigued by smaller, rising areas like Las Cruces,” he said. “New Mexico has become a major film and TV hub that still looks to have astonishing potential.”
For the third consecutive year, MoveMaker named Albuquerque the No. 1 best place to live and work as a moviemaker in the big-cities category. Santa Fe was ranked No. 2 in the small cities and towns category.
