New Mexico's only full-service sandbag company, and to
date our bags have been featured in several major
motion pictures and television productions (scroll
down to see our portfolio to date). We'd love to work
with you. For pricing, see our commercial
. We offer discounts for volume orders, and
delivery is available throughout the Southwest.
Production Design, Set Dressing and Props:
Our bags have been used for both contemporary military and
dystopian set dressings. We have just what you need for WW
I, WW 2, Korea, Vietnam and modern (Iraq, Afghanistan,
etc.) theaters and campaigns.
We can also provide bags for westerns, barricades for
street demonstrations, and historical warfare (didn't know
that sandbags were used in the Revolutionary and Civil
wars. did you?).
Sandbags are also perfect for
zombie/Armageddon/post-apocalyptic flicks, and - of course
- for use in man's eternal, epic struggle against the
relentlessness of floods & natural disasters.
Sandbags are iconic.
Our polypropylene bags in an array of colors and burlap
bags (both untreated and treated) are the industry
standard today. As hinted above, we can source old-school
cotton sandbags as well. These and other specialty bags
(e.g., old faded burlap coffee & feed bags) can be
filled with lightweight material for props such as wagon
loads, dockside cargo bales... you get the idea.
One production we worked with needed clouds of dust for a
car chase... there'd been too much rain and, well, there
was no dust. Time was limited; we came up with burlap
"duster" bags filled with dry silty dirt to do the trick
when driven across. We can provide wide varieties of sand,
dirt, rock, scoria, etc., either bagged or by the yard.
