Sundance Film Festival

park city utah snowyMy last full day in Utah was spent in Park City where Sundance Film Festival was being held. Myself and five other amazing girls had car service from the Grand America hotel to downtown Park City. Plenty of snow fell the night before so this was really my first time IN the snow in years.

weather for Park City(it was sure cold and wet when we went on Saturday)

While at Sundance I really, really wanted to see Aaron Paul from Breaking Bad. He’s in a new film, Smashed, that premiered at the festival and apparently he was around but no where near me. Bummer. I did see Parvesh Cheena from that show Outsourced (canceled). I think I saw Mary J. Blige walking down the sidewalk.

The girls and I had lunch at Zoom. I had a Long Island Ice Tea (it’s Utah so it’s not like they were that strong), delicious mac and cheese, and a yummy salad. After eating, Alison and I met Alex Punch Hype-White, who (in his words) you may have seen him playing small parts in big films or big parts in small films. He had a small role on the show Dexter.

After lunch we got in line for the Sundance Music Cafe and were the last group of people let in. Plus, we didn’t have badges which those folks had priority. Cheers to the our pretty group of girls and the dude doorman. Otherwise we probably wouldn’t have gotten in.

We saw a great group of artists throughout the afternoon (from left to right): Jenny O, Ben Taylor and friends, A Fine Frenzy, Josh Kelley, Natasha Bedingfield with John Forté & Friends, Ben Taylor, and Sergey and this little 12 year old girl Sophia with a lot of talent. Sophia covered Anna Nalick’s “Breathe” at Flanagan’s Irish Pub & Restaurant.

 

p.s. you can see I’m starting to play around with Photoshop. It’s been a very long time since I last used it so bare with me while I figure it all out.
