Making Movies in Colorado

Donald Zuckerman is a producer of sixteen movies, best known for Green Street Hooligans (2005), Casino Jack (2010) and Freaky Deaky (2012).  In 1994, Zuckerman produced his first feature film, “The Low Life,” with Kyra Sedgwick and Rory Cochrane. It was directed by a 32-year-old filmmaker named George  Hickenlooper.  The two went on to make seven films together, among them “Casino Jack,” “Mayor of the Sunset Strip” and “The Man From Elysian Fields.” That last one starred Andy Garcia, Mick Jagger and Julianna Margulies. It also gave the director’s cousin, a Denver brewpub owner named John Hickenlooper, his first movie role.

Zuckerman was appointed director of the Colorado Office of Film, TV and Media on June 21, 2911.  A division of the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade, the Colorado Office of Film, TV, and Media takes great pride in promoting the great State of Colorado to the film and television industry locally, nationally and internationally.
