11 AM | Film & Media Landscape in Southern NM

With the opening of 828 Studios and a potential 35% tax incentive for filmmakers, Las Cruces has seen an uptick in production.  This trend will positively affect education and employment in our area. 

Jonathon Sepp set his sights on the film and media industry at a young age and received the Film Technician Training Program certificate upon graduating from Las Cruces High School. After completing his BFA from the Creative Media Institute at NMSU, he went to work primarily as a grip and camera operator. He has now been the Film Liaison for Film Las Cruces for over 4 years and has assisted in locating film and various multimedia productions to the Las Cruces area:

  • The Mule (starring Clint Eastwood)
  • All The World is Sleeping (starring Melissa Barrera and Jorge Garcia)
  • Death in Texas (starring Ronnie Gene Blevins and Bruce Dern).

Jonathon was at the forefront of advocating for the “+5% Uplift Zone” and looks forward to continued growth of the film and television industry in his hometown.
