Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) May 22, 2012
The Colorado Office of Film, Television & Media, a division of the Office of Economic Development and International Trade, today announced the launch of ShootColorado.org, a public-private partnership aimed at attracting and facilitating film, television and print media production around the state.
Visitors to Shoot Colorado will be able to search Colorado’s communities for locations, crew, resources and contacts. “This is a great tool for productions to quickly locate and use the many film resources in the state,” says Donald Zuckerman, Director of the Office of Film, Television & Media.
“From the Eastern Plains, to the Front Range, to the mountains and the San Luis Valley, our state has amazing places for film production to take place, and Shoot Colorado will help filmmakers quickly find those options. This statewide partnership is a huge step in bringing Colorado to the forefront of film and media creation.”
More than 80 Colorado communities have a one page website/online resource on ShootColorado.org, allowing them to more effectively market and highlight their unique qualities to potential productions. Pages are equipped with location photos and logistical information such as nearest airport, lodging options, and a local business directory.
Shoot Colorado is a production of iFilm, Inc,. a Boulder-based company founded by Daniel Taras. To learn more, email Daniel at daniel.film(at)shootcolorado(dot)org.
