Sundance Film Festival, 2009

Pulse Creative joined Parish Nation at the 25th Anniversary of the one and only Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.  The 6-day adventure included coverage of the Fred Segal celebrity gift suite, music performances by 50 Cent and Robin Thicke, and 2 days of killer snowboarding at the Park City Mountain Resort.

The gift suite attracted appearances from actors / actresses, athletes, and musicians including comedian Tom Arnold, Nick Cannon, X-Games star Tanner Hall, Liam Neeson, football superstar Terrell Owens, Academy Award winner Susan Sarandon, hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons, and Guns ‘N Roses very own Slash.

50-Cent put on an invite-only performance at the Vitamin Water house featuring music from his upcoming album, and brought out Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo and Robin Thicke.  Robin Thicke also put on an exlcusive performance at Harry O’s featuring music from his upcoming album.

The last days of the event provided a different view of Sundance – high a top Park City where snowboarding conditions were ridiculous.  Mixing business with pleasure, Pulse Creative helped produce a video for Parish Nation’s upcoming web site launch featuring Tony Shellman and Chaka Wilson.

Despite the economic climate, and the Presidential Innaguration that many felt would limit the exposure and potential for this year’s festival, ticket sales overall were higher for the annual event.  We had the opportunity to preview two screenings: Arlen Faber and The Chinese Inventors, both great films.  For more information on The Sundance Film Festival, please visit the official Sundance Institute web site.
