Sundance Short Film Showcase

Just got back from SLC Utah. Wet Dreams and False Images was part of a line-up of shorts. Hadn’t actually seen any of the other films beforehand. They were great — really diverse subjects and styles. Fun to get to know the other filmmakers.

We even went practice skydiving which was pretty hysterical. Basically you suit up and enter this wind tunnel/ turbine and get to pretend to be a superhero.

But the real highlight was getting to do a workshop at Spyhop. I used to teach a documentary program called Reel Stories through Sundance and was great to be back there.
