This is my first day back from the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. It was our first time out – we set up camp a few miles east of town (thanks to a couple serious snowstorms, it was a nightmarish few miles), and put up a studio in a bedroom generously donated by Insignia Inc.. Nick White, our editor, flew in from Chicago, and Benjamin Harrison was kind enough to volunteer his time to shoot video. My wife came a long for the better part of the weekend as well, helping with setups, takedowns and logistics.
Scheduling was incredibly complicated. Publicists were often surprised that I wanted to see the films before we talked to the artists involved, and many films didn’t open until several days into the festival. We did talk to some amazing people, though – Kevin Kline, Jeffrey Blitz, Taika Waititi and others.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a roadtrip unless I got a million migraines – I ended up having three in five days. That’s life, I guess.
Ben and Nick did amazing work, and we’ll have all kinds of great stuff for you in the coming weeks. Our shows from Sundance start February 9th with our interview with Kevin Kline.
