Walk. Ride. Rodeo. to Film in New Mexico
The independent feature, produced by Netflix and Poke Prod, will begin principal photography at the end of July through mid-August in Santa Fe, Espanola and Albuquerque.
It tells the story of Amberley Snyder's, a nationally ranked barrel racer, fight to get back in the saddle after being paralysed in a car accident. The production will employ approximately 60 New Mexico crew members, 20 New Mexico actors and 350 New Mexico background talent.
"We are proud to welcome another great independent feature to New Mexico," said Film Office Director Nick Maniatis. "New Mexico's deep base of talent, infrastructure, and competitive incentives continue to help us attract independent films to New Mexico."
Walk. Ride. Rodeo. will be directed by Conor Allyn (Java Heat, Overexposed, Zoe Gone) and produced by Elizabeth Cullen and Sean Dwyer (Jean of the Jones, Zoe Gone).
"We are incredibly blessed to have our story's inspiring real life heroine Amberley Snyder so intimately involved in both the development of the script and the physical production of our film. People are going to be impressed. It doesn't get more real than what they are going to see here," said director Conor Allyn.
New Mexico has already been used as the backdrop for several Netflix productions including The Ballad of Buster Scruggs and Messiah, the latter of which is currently using the state as a double for Middle Eastern locations.
Demi Moore’s upcoming film, Corporate Animals, is also currently filming in New Mexico – combining locations in Santa Fe and Abiquiu.
New Mexico boasts one of the one financially competitive film incentives on the market, which has played a key part in developing the state as a go-to destination for filmmakers. With no minimum spend or minimum shoot days required, producers can tap into a 25% refundable tax credit upon utilising the state for filming.
