Jonathan Sepp


Jonathon Sepp set his sights on the film and media industry while attending Sierra Middle School in Las Cruces, NM. In 2009 he received the Film Technician Training Program certificate from Doña Ana Community College and graduated from Las Cruces High School that same year. After completing his Bachelor of Creative Media from the Creative Media Institute at New Mexico State University, he went to work primarily as a grip, camera operator, and video editor. Sepp has now been the Film Liaison for Film Las Cruces for over 5 years and has assisted in locating numerous film and multimedia productions to the Las Cruces area: including The Mule (directed by and starring Clint Eastwood), Chupa (directed by Jonas Cuaron and starring Demián Bichir), All The World is Sleeping (starring Melissa Barrera and Jorge Garcia), Death in Texas (starring Ronnie Gene Blevins and Bruce Dern), Wanted Man (starring Dolph Lundgren and Kelsey Grammer), and The Locksmith (starring Ryan Phillippe, Kate Bosworth, and Ving Rhames). Beginning in 2021, he led the City of Las Cruces marketing initiative to attract 828 Studios to Las Cruces. Jonathon was at the forefront of successfully advocating for the “+5% Rural Uplift Zone” being added to the New Mexico Film Production Tax Credit Act and looks forward to the continued growth of his hometown's film and television industry.
