This is my second animated short (the first was a 20 sec promo for the website that should be available online).

Sorry for the tardiness of the post.

THE FOLLOWING IS A TRANSCRIPT OF AN INTERVIEW WITH FILMMAKER ELI ROTH. THE VIEWS EXPRESSED IN THIS INTERVIEW ARE NOT NECESSARILY THE VIEWS OF THOSE AT CBP…BUT EVEN IF THEY ARE, IT DOESN'T REALLY MATTER, DOES IT? I MEAN, WE CAN STILL BE FRIENDS, RIGHT?]

EDITOR'S NOTE: [THIS INTERVIEW WAS GIVEN ON JUNE 6TH A COUPLE OF DAYS BEFORE ROTH'S FILM HOSTEL II OPENED IN THEATERS. ]

Roth: Thanks for having me, I'm a big fan of the up and coming filmmaker.

[Pause]

Monty: I'll bet you are.

Roth: (Laughs nervously) Uhh, okay.

[Pause]

This is my first attempt at animation since I was ten years old.

This was maybe our most draining day at the festival.

Tucker and Dale Versus Evil was Amazing!

Our last film of the festival was the one we were most looking forward to the entire festival. Below is a short synopsis: “The hillbillies from the store captured Alison!”

This is our introductory Sundance Video Diary.

This was shot moments after our arrival in Park City, Utah for the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. We go into greater detail in our later video blogs, so be sure to keep checking them out. Video Blogs 1-3 are posted today, the rest of them will be posted tomorrow. Once again, special thanks to Wendy and Steve for allowing us to tag along.

This was an amazing treat for us.

To sit and listen to an Academy Award Winner give a presentation about the nature of cinema, it's beginnings and where it might be headed was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. And one of the perks...it was free. I could try and explain what Mr. Murch talked about in greater detail, but it's too big a topic for me to lay out here. Luckily, I discovered that someone had taped the event and posted it on youtube. Below is part one of the lecture we attended at the Filmmaker Lodge.
