Albuquerque is just about the best place in the nation for filmmakers, according to a new list.

MovieMaker magazine ranked the city second best for places to live, work and make movies. It cited New Mexico's financial incentives and the massive Albuquerque Studios complex at Mesa del Sol.

Mayor Martin Chavez said Albuquerque's varied architecture also makes it a good stand-in for many other cities.

Tops this year was Austin, Texas. Albuquerque was No. 4 last year.
