Amber Dodson, director with the New Mexico Film Office, said in the press release:
"Behind the Yellow House is packed with not only a story that explores the tale of growing up in New Mexico, but is also being shot in Belen, New Mexico, and employing a number of New Mexicans. We welcome the production team of Behind the Yellow House to our beautiful state."
The press release stated that the production will employ about 35 local crew members along with six principal actors and 20 local extras.
Futschik, producer of Behind the Yellow House, said:
"New Mexico was chosen for this production because of the availability of the incredible cast and crew located within the state and the film friendly tax incentives. But we must add, New Mexico's landscape brings such value to any film being shot in the state."
