Littleton, CO (PRWEB) February 9, 2008
Inferno Film Productions, LLC, will be sponsoring a seminar on motion picture pre-production on March 15, 2008 in Denver.
Developed and presented by producer/attorney Darlene Cypser, the purpose of this seminar is to give independent filmmakers the information and tools they need to develop movie projects and prepare them for production. The topics covered will include: What makes a salable movie?; Copyright issues; Breaking down a script; releases; financing; forming a production company.

She has been quoted in MovieMaker Magazine and The Complete Independent Movie Marketing Handbook. She organized and spoke at the Legal Aspects of Film and Video Production Conference at the Comcast Media Center in September 2003 and spoke on panels about movie distribution and entertainment law at the Midwest Entertainment Industry Conference in Lexington, Kentucky.
Darlene is also an attorney with 20 years experience, licensed in both Colorado and New York. Prior to becoming involved in the movie business, Darlene practiced law in Boulder, Colorado, concentrating on business and tax law. She also taught classes on legal subjects through the Boulder Valley School District's Adult Education program. More recently she has done legal work for local production companies and both Pay Reel and Crew Connection.
