many of you had questions regarding my whole experience working the sundance film festival, so here we go.i signed up to be a volunteer for the sundance back in late august. i've always been interested in the entertainment industry (you know, the whole PR thing). i wrote an essay, i did a phone interview, took a few quizzes and voilà, i was headed to sundance.
i had no idea what to expect as i had never been there before during this festive time. and i was a little worried to be doing it all by myself, but within minutes i made good friends who were working my shifts. i felt all official as i was strapped on with a fancy headset and clip board. my official title was the sign-up volunteer. i was in charge of delegating to the P&I, directors, producers, and patrons where they were to sign up, to check out their credentials, write them down, and show them to their theatres. basically i was their little chaperons for hours on end. i got to meet and talk with a lot of important people. anywhere from singer, ingrid michaelson, to actor, joseph gordon-levitt, to writer/director, brad bird. look at me, i'm totally name dropping and i love it! ha
i had so much fun, i can't wait to do it all over again next year. and i even plan on volunteering for the academy awards next time around. i could get used to all this glitz and glamour!
have anymore questions? do you want to get involved next year and want the full low down? just email me!
