The lights and the camera, the big stars and the director's chair -- these are the icons we associate with filmmaking. But the magic on the silver screen wouldn't happen without such key players as casting directors and producers. Local filmmakers and fans can learn about the people behind the scenes at "The Talent You Don't See," the second installment of the Film Industry Seminar Series at Sie FilmCenter on Tuesday, September 17. "The idea is to incentivize Colorado-based filmmakers to be as savvy and sophisticated about the industry as they would be if they were based in L.A. or New York," says Alison Greenberg, manager of donor and foundation relations at the Denver Film Society.
