WHAT I LEARNED AT SUNDANCE @SUNDANCEFEST

Way back before I even started filming what eventually became Hip Hop: The New World Order, I decided to make my first trek to Park City, Utah to experience the Sundance Film Festival.  And what better way to immerse myself into the world of indie film than to volunteer! I worked registration, checked tickets etc. etc. and most of all spent 10 days watching films.  To be honest, I was underwhelmed with many of the films I watched even those that received standing ovations and boombastic applause.  But what imapcted me most was the hundreds of filmmakers who "Just Did It". They picked up a camera, gathered up their crews and made something happen.  The magic of film! And I was inspired to hit the road with out a budget, team or camera to make a movie. I mean it couldn’t be any worse than some of those films I saw, right? Maybe. Maybe Not.
