are a lot of work...
I had planned on writing updates from Sundance, but with no wireless connection and holding down three jobs while we were there (mike's screening event, hosting for the Canadian show
and shooting for the Dallas show
) - well, just staying awake was a feat. PBS has expressed another interest in the Appalachian project as Mike was able to 'sneak' into a panel discussion on documentaries where he did a bang-up-job-pitch according to PBS. (way to go Mike). We also heard from the BBC
and they're using some of Mike's footage in their "Naughty Outtakes" show in London... those crazy Brits! There were more celebs at this year's festival than you could shake a $50K Motorola gift bag
at. Walking down the sidewalk we overheard as two people were reunited. "Hey! Kevin! It's me Sandra! We were on Babylon 5
together! Season 3!" much like you'd hear a friend proclaim. "Hey! Steve! It's me Eric! Dartmouth
business school '95!" ah, and the agents, producers, etc. They were all there looking tense and intense in their black sweaters, on their cell phones and running over everyone by way of foot traffic and SUVs while overusing the "F" word... I'm always ready to leave Sundance, but I soon miss. I think we had some great success while there on all three projects.. more to come and here's to actually getting into the festival next year. :D
