An independent movie production company has come to Colorado searching for its own fortune with its first full-length movie in Clear Creek County and in Denver.

The production company, Distant Thunder Films, is filming “Searching for Fortune” in Empire, at Ponder Point and Echo Lake, and last week it was fully entrenched in the Westwinds Tavern on Miner Street in Idaho Springs.
