Filming in Luna County
Luna County is thrilled to help make your media project a reality. Here is information you might find helpful:
- Luna County Film Office offers its services at no charge. We can help you find property, buildings, support services and other needs, but we do not negotiate fees or rates.
- No film permits are required by the city or county.
- Plenty of public land. Two-thirds of Luna County is either federal or state land. We can help you find land and make contact with the appropriate agency.
- Luna County's film liaison is an experienced photographer with extensive knowledge of the area and community.
- About 100 miles from El Paso International Airport. Our local airport has an 8,000 foot runway (among other runways) and refueling capacity.
- Luna County government owns and maintains over 1,400 miles of road. Whether your project needs paved, dirt, or gravel roads, we can most likely help without having to involve other agencies.
- We have a rich agricultural industry. If you are looking for ranch or farmland, we can find the right look for your project.
- Luna County is located on the international border with Palomas, Chihuahua, Mexico. Palomas is a small town of about 4,700. We can help you make contacts there, if needed.
- Three state parks: Rockhound, Spring Canyon (technically part of Rockhound, but distinct in many ways) and Pancho Villa. A fourth, City of Rocks, is located just outside the county line. It features spectacular rock formations unique to Southern New Mexico.
- Wind and solar generation facilities throughout county.
- Multiple desert looks. We have the fertile Nutt Grasslands in the northwest, and the mesquite-heavy upper Chihuahuan desert around the rest of the county.
- Diverse architecture. Deming and Luna County feature a variety of home styles, including early 20th century brick homes, ranch houses on sprawling acreage, southwestern stucco-finished houses, multiple trailer and recreational vehicle parks, and just about everything in between.
