Among the Stars, BEAU Shines at Sundance

The 30th installment of the Sundance Film Festival continued its tradition of promoting the art of film making during the annual festival in Park City, Utah. Among the many Hollywood celebrities, musicians and world-wide industry talent, there is a local flare to the event. While the lounge parties, film screenings and red carpet photo shoots get a lot of the attention, Utahns are able to take advantage of the famous event.

 For the third straight year, BEAU partnered with the Independent Filmmaker’s Lounge to help bring attention to the local film and music scene. Artists, producers, musicians, filmmakers and associated talent networked in the lounge to create relationships and potentially collaborate on projects. Being involved with the lounge allows BEAU to further connect the industry with their curriculum.

BEAU also hosted a panel to a packed lounge on, ‘How do you make it in this crazy film business.’ The panel was hosted by Broadview University staff member, Bob Trewartha, and included panelists:

  • Marshall Moore, Director, Utah Film Commission
  • Valerie Cameron-Walker, President of Flava Entertainment
  • Tony Toscano from Talking Pictures, Chris Le, Director at Le Tucker Productions
  • Rando Schmook, BEAU and countless movie credits.

“It was an honor to host a panel of such dignitaries,” remarked Trewartha. “All have years of experience in the film industry. It made for a great discussion on the topic of ‘making it’ in the film business.”

BEAU’s students were also getting in on the action during Sundance. A number of students interned for production companies and lounges. Other students applied their course work during classroom activities in Park City by taking photographs and working with light and shadow techniques. While not quite 30 years, yet, BEAU is looking forward to being involved at the nation’s most well-known film festival for many years to come .
