SANTA FE (AP) - A new feature length movie is wrapping up production in New
Mexico this week. “The Far Side of Jericho” has employed a crew of 75 during its 23-day shoot in locations around
New Mexico. Parts of the movie were filmed in Zia Pueblo, Cook Ranch, Bonanza and Diablo Canyon. New Mexico offers
a number of film incentives, including a tax rebate of 20 percent, no-interest loans and film training. Move producer
Tom Shell said he set out to make a feature film for under $2 million. He says solid crews, breathtaking locations
and strong financial incentives drew the makers to New Mexico.
