Got pulled over by the cops my first night in SLC. My headlights were off when I pulled put of MickeyD's. It was all good though. Just explained it and I got let off the hook.
I checked into a Motel 6 then went to check out the Utah Filmmakers Meet'n'Greet. Met some local filmmakers/producers. I also met one of the actors for Troll 2. Didn't speak too much but it was cool to meet him nonetheless--he's famous for "They're eating her! Then they're going to eat me!".
This morning I packed up an came to Park City. As I was leaving the motel parking lot there was a car with Quebec license plates-cool.
I arrived and found somewhere to park. Had to pay to park all day but whatever: I made it.
I chatted up with one of the volunteers, Frank from Texas, 'n he told me he chatted up Seth Rogan just a while ago. Sorry, I didn't see him. :p
I made it to Main Street, finally! I looked up and and breathed in the warm Mountain Air. Ahhh. I made it.
I checked out all the local shops and most of the sponsors tents. I grabbed a lot free swag...well, some free swag. They were giving away water bottles 'n makeup.
I grabbed a couple coffee mugs after filing out some free contest forms.
I went to the box office and asked if there were any tickets available for any show today. I got a ticket for "We're not Broke."
On the way to the movie there were these 2 gals sitting behind me having an interesting conversation. One was having an affair with a married man and she was feeling guilty about it. It sounded like movie plot!
Anyway, the documentary is about Corporation tax evasion. I enjoyed it. I got video of the directors Q&A.
I also met a cool musician busking along Main Street: Natalie Gelman, from LA. She performed a song on video for me. Look her up!
I also met a future filmmaker from Argentina. He told me he was just starting to get into filmmaking. I gave him my website to check out.
I know I passed a few stars along Main but everyone was walking so fast. Maybe I'll see a few tomorrow.
I also checked out Slamdance. I ended up in the filmmakers lounge and grabbed some coffee. I also grabbed chips, water and a lot of those Monster Drinks, which they were giving away for free.
At the end of the night I took one more walk up Main. The parties were just starting to get started but I got too tired to check any out.
I went back to my car and drive down to Heber City and got a cheap room.
I'm going to check out one more film before I head home.
