MAY 2018

May 2018 – Directors Cut – DIVING INTO SUMMER – This spring has been a busy one, and as we head into summer in Utah, it looks like our production schedule will be ramping up once again. We currently have four films shooting right now, including a new series, Dwight in Shining Armour, and an independent feature, Night Clerk. In addition, we have another four great projects starting in June.

APRIL 2018 – Directors Cut – GOING GREEN – Film production and sustainability don’t typically go hand-in-hand. With temporary sets always being built and taken down, various power supplies running, paper print-outs being passed around, and daily catering for cast and crew, film sets are not traditionally ‘green’ places.

MARCH 2018 – Directors Cut: Earlier this month, I joined a host of producers, distributors, film commissioners and other Hollywood insiders for a ‘Power Brunch’ honoring the industry’s top physical production executives. The event was curated by AFCI (the Association of Film Commissioners International) and The Hollywood Reporter and, in its first year, saw a turnout of over 115 senior production studio execs.

FEBRUARY 2018 – Directors Cut: When I watch the credits of a film (everyone does that, right?), I’m looking for people I know, as well as marveling at the sheer numbers it takes to get a film off the ground. You need everyone from producers and interns, to editors and distributers, for a film to finally end up playing in a movie theatre near you. There is no denying that the film community feels all encompassing.

January 2018

Happy New Year! As usual, January has flown by with both legislative session and Sundance-mania in full swing. This year’s Festival premiered four Utah-made productions (congrats to the filmmakers, and to all of the local crew and cast involved!) and I loved hanging out in beautiful Park City with so many like-minded, creative people. We tried to keep up with all of the familiar faces we saw but admittedly lost count after Robert Redford, Ethan Hawke, Robert Pattinson, Mia Wasikowska, Octavia Spencer and John Legend.
