Sundance… When faced with the task of blogging a summary of this trip, I find myself drawing a blank. Not because of lack of memorable moments, but because there were so many amazing moments. From walking down main street and shmoozing to watching films and sitting in on Q and A’s I’ve learned about film and the philosophies each director presents to us. Also I grew tight with many of my fellow bloggers on this trip gaining connections we never had developed before, especially through Tom’s tickling. All together I think this experience has been priceless and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
I met incredibly awesome and interesting people that either shared words of wisdom or just simply encouraged me on my life journies in environmental studies. Some stand out experiences were seeing Steven Soderbergh and Gregg Araki in their discussion pannel. Another gratifying experience was meeting 3 of the members of Broken Lizard some of the largest comedic influences on my life, I never thought I would have Farva’s arm around my shoulder. Also it was rewarding meeting Pedro from Napolean Dynamite, though I was disappointed he didn’t have his signature meak accent. (more…)
