While filming brings some business to the filming locations, it is all "temporary" jobs and business, with very little longer-term impact.
    I'll not speculate on what "Silver Bullet Productions", The "Lone Ranger" brought to NM. Yes, they recieved tax credits from the state. I don't know the figures. For our business however they added greatly to our bottom line in 2012. They paid cash, and as small business I can only say the film industry is welcome. It is not long term manufacturing jobs, but those were sold off long ago, thank you. JD
