TRYING new things has never been a problem for Donald Zuckerman, Colorado’s relatively new film commissioner.
He’s tried plenty of new things, many of them connected to entertainment in some way, some not. He has been comfortable on both the financial and creative sides of cinematic and other pursuits.
In his 67 years — he looks an easy 20 years younger, despite his silver hair — Zuckerman has succeeded at many of his ventures and failed at a few.
He doesn’t mind discussing any of them, including the clunkers.
Some years back, he was a pivotal player in an attempt to develop a major concert venue on the site of an “old and defunct” amphitheater in Queens, NY.
