Hollywood loves New Mexico. For decades, studios – attracted by the state’s blue skies, terrain and sunshine – have boosted the state’s economy in sending crews here to work on a number of films and television shows including “The Grapes of Wrath,” “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” “The Muppet Movie,” “The Avengers” and “Breaking Bad.”
For a moment, though, get the stars out of your eyes. Remember that it takes great dedication to create such potential blockbusters. That’s why studios must rely on crews consisting of hundreds of people. While actors and directors receive a great amount of the prestige, it takes a collaborative effort from the likes of camera operators, construction crews and stunt performers to accomplish a studio’s goals.
