We can assist movie and ad makers in a number of ways, which include: river location scouting, on-water camera platforms, river safety, river transportation and more. We have provided such services on over a dozen occasions, which include: “Lonesome Dove”, “Natural Born Killers”, “The Missing”, and "The Last Outlaw" (see photo to the left, shot on the Rio Chama below Abiquiu Dam).
in March, 2011, we worked for an NBC pilot, on the Rio Grande and Pecos rivers. We ferried a Tech scout group and then the Greens crew back and forth across a river channel on the Rio Grande river and then constructed a raft bridge across the same channel on the Rio Grande; our kayaker retrieved a costume hat on the Rio Grande several times; using throw ropes, our guides retrieved a stunt man and then an actor who had "committed suicide" in the Rio Grande river; we carried people and equipment on rafts across the Pecos River.
In 2012, we provided river safety services for the film "Sweetwater", on the Rio Chama below Abiquiu Dam, and in 2013 we provided river safety services for "Jane Got a Gun", on the Rio Grande at Santa Clara Pueblo.

Our guide, Mike Boren, tests out the route that will be used when an actor "commits suicide" in the river, while safety kayaker Atom Crawford stands by.
NWRCo. owner, Kathy Miller, keeps an eye on the raft bridge, as personnel cross over and back. This bridge greatly shortened the time required for the filming efforts that day.
