Sundance 2008: Bullet The Blue Sky
Park City sprawls out below The Lodge At Mountain Village at the base of Park City Mountain Resort. Looking east from Room 270, the sun is crowns the Wasatch in cool pink. Below, steady streams of red brake lights flow towards the highway.
Following a largely uneventful (though painfully early) flight, and an equally chill commute from Salt Lake to Park City, I have arrived.
I’ve been at Sundance about five hours, three of which I spent sleeping, the remainder of which I spent eating, drinking, and planning.
See, it’s all about the planning here. If you’re gonna see movies, you gotta plan em out. It takes time to get around here (it’s a small town, but it’s loaded with people). And I’m here for less than 72 hours. Here’s how they’re shaping up:
Sat 700 – Depart JFK
Sat 1200 – Arrive SLC
Sat 1330 – Arrive Park City
Sat 1930- U23D Red Carpet
Sat 2200 – U23D Screening
Sun 1130 – American Teen
Sun 1600 – What Just Happened?
Sun 2130 – Gonzo: The Life & Work of Hunter S. Thompson
Mon 1030 – Work-in-Process Documentary Panel
Mon 1400 – Depart Park City
Mon 1730 – Depart SLC
Tue 0000 – Arrive JFK
Toss a good run or two in there, and factor in the need to turn these interviews and screenings into content for MTV News and, well, my Sundance is as good as over already.
