The New Mexico film scene continues to attract productions.

The latest announced by the New Mexico Film Office is the feature film, “Jane.”

The psychological thriller began filming about a month ago in Albuquerque.

“The New Mexico film and television industry continues to see increased numbers of productions shooting and interested in our state,” said Amber Dodson, New Mexico Film Office director.

It will film in Albuquerque through August.

“Jane” centers on a seemingly perfect high school senior, Olivia, who struggles with grief from the recent loss of a friend. When she gets deferred from her dream college, she begins to spiral and experiences a series of increasingly frightening panic attacks. To regain some sense of control, she embarks on a social media-fueled rampage against those that stand in the way of her success but, as things escalate, she is forced to confront — and ultimately embrace — her darkest impulses to get ahead.

The film stars Madelaine Petsch, who’s also producing, in the lead role as Olivia. Grammy nominated Chlöe Bailey is playing the role of Izzy, while Oscar winner Melissa Leo is Principal Rhodes.

The film is directed by Sabrina Jaglom, and produced by Debbie Liebling, Creator+ Head of Production Nick Phillips and Head of Content Studio Adam Wescott.

“New Mexico was on our radar from the beginning because of its growing infrastructure for film and television production,” said Wescott. “There is an obvious demand for great hires, locations and more here in Albuquerque. So, we’re thrilled to be shooting ‘Jane’ here.”

The production will employ approximately 40 New Mexico crew members, 10 New Mexico principal cast members, and 125 New Mexico background and extras, according to the New Mexico Film Office.

The film is being produced by JanePlus Films LLC and Creator+.
