About January, I start to run low on funds and need a quick cash infusion, so I fall back on the money tree of event marketing to get me through the rest of the season. In previous winters, I’ve worked The Super Bowl, X-Games, CES in Vegas, and my personal favorite, Spring Break.
This year, I put on my fanciest fur coat and headed to Sundance. I got a gig working at a fake insurance company called Brownstar for the movie Cedar Rapids. Training consisting of watching the flick, which was awesome, and then I spent the next four days helping Sundancers make credentials for insurance policies like “Protection Against Naked Man Hugs” and “Death by Auto-Asphyxiation Protection”.
Random notes on Sundance:
–The extremely tiny Park City couldn’t be more ill suited to hold a festival the size of Sundance.
–Movie stars wearing five inch heels on ice is funny.
–Ed Helms acts like Andy from The Office in real life.
–I overheard Anne Heche say: “It’s snowing really hard, I need to buy an umbrella.”
Coco showed up on the last day and I forced her to a midnight showing of a movie. This is her completely thrilled about being in the wait list line with a bunch of nerds for a movie entitled The Troll Hunter. Think Blair Witch Project meets Cloverfield meets Norway. I loved it.
Here’s the trailer:
