Shoot Colorado: Website aims to help Hollywood find places to film

Let's say you're a big-time Hollywood filmmaker. You've heard about Colorado's new film incentives and you'd love to take advantage of the cash rebates natural splendor the state has to offer. But where to start? A new website called Shoot Colorado makes it easy, providing a digital directory of locations searchable by region and attributes. Looking for a diner? How about a ghost town? A railroad? A drilling rig? Suburbia?
