YOMYOMF is representing at the Sundance Film Festival throughout the week. Justin Lin, our fearless leader, is on the Narrative Jury, so he’s shackled with festival jury duty until the very end. Offender Elaine and I, on the other hand, are partaking in as many screenings as we can. Elaine is a crazy cinephile, and a screening machine, so she is out in about watching films and booking lots of meetings with industry players. As for me, I arrived a day late, and actually road tripped from LA to Park City, which is always a fun drive (with a quick stop in Las Vegas for breakfast buffet and a couple of hands at the blackjack table). I have to play catch up to Justin and Elaine, who have seen a number of films already.
We’re all staying in a “cabin” in Park City. I don’t know, when someone tells me cabin, I’m thinking of a log cabin. We’re staying in a state-of-the-art, massive home with heated floors, an amazing kitchen, and two living rooms.
Now, I know what you’re thinking — The cabin is going to be coke whore central! On the contrary, it’s going to be more like Christmas family vacation, with Justin and Sal’s families coming in tomorrow. I expect a bunch of kids jumping on my bed to wake up way early in the morning. Plus, Offender Phil is coming for the second half, so he can take the mantle on the coke and whores front. Good times.
But in the meantime, the families aren’t here yet, so we can still go all Rated R up here, but I’m immediately shot down. Besides, it’s already Day #3 and we’re planning out our day, which includes screenings, meetings, and the big Youtube Sundance party tonight, which should be fun, since we are working with them on the YOMYOMF Network.
But, we’re going to have to trek to some major snow tonight, after waking up this morning to this scene:
So expect more Sundance reports, including films we recommend, people we run into, and other nifty things that happen through the duration of the Festival. In the meantime, Justin, Elaine and I are about to put on our snow shoes and trek it down to Main Street.
