From "Billy the Kid" to "Breaking Bad," movies and television have portrayed and marketed our state into the present day. Over the past decade, film production in New Mexico has enjoyed a renaissance, thanks to state incentives. However, film has long been a part of New Mexico’s landscape, and the state’s landscape and people have often been featured in film.
