Raleigh Studios and FotoKem Inspire Sundance Attendees

user
Photo by Dianna Renée High above Sundance, on the gorgeous, snow-drenched slopes of Deer Vally, Raleigh Studios, by far, threw one of the best Sundance bashes of 2011. Raleigh Studios Director of Marketing and Client Development, Michael Newport, organized the bash with Fotokem. As guests (mostly comprised of filmmakers) entered the large, lodge-like space, they were greeted with massages, an oxygen bar, photo booth and hair extensions from Bella Via (the glittery ...

Celebrity Karaoke – At Sundance?

user
Leave it to the House of Hype LIVEStyle lounge to bring you LIVE celebrity karaoke. I went with a few friends and once Blake Lewis hit the mic with Shwayze, no one was volunteering to go next. They were an amazing duo! Watch the video below and see what I’m talking about: And if you were wondering - no, there was NO background music. That was ALL Blake. -Dianna Renée ...

Where Was The Tribe?

user
Music seemed to be the artform dominating the Sundance Film Festival. I saw more musical acts perform this year than any other I’ve attended. DC Shoes, Skullcandy and Express presented A Tribe Called Quest featuring The Roots for a live performance at the World Famous HarryO’s in Park City, UT. However, despite a first class ticket and hotel accommodations booked by director, Michael Rapaport, Q-Tip didn’t show and the gig never happened. Maybe it had something to do wi...

Sundance Channel Headquarters host Las Vegas

user
The friendly and inviting atmosphere at the Sundance Channel Headquarters made it one of my happiest places to be during the Sundance Film Festival. Festival pass holders and filmmakers who registered for the lounge were invited in for free drinks, cookies and the occasional lunch. All sorts of people relaxed and mingled in the two floors of the lounge while live broadcasts were conducted up stairs next to the Funny Face Photo Booth where you got to dress up and take silly, photo b...

Ralph Lauren celebrates their new fragrances with OneRepublic at The House of Hype LiveStyle Lounge

user
OneRepublic at the Ralph Lauren Big Pony Party, Photo by Michael Korbic The Sundance Film Festival has become a favorite for the launch or promotion of new products. This year, Ralph Lauren introduced their newest fragrance line, “Big Pony”, with a live performance by OneRepublic at The House of Hype LiveStyle Lounge. OneRepublic rocked out in the small, packed bar of Cisero’s where the crowd went crazy at the chance to see them so up close and personal. Ralp...

Brita and Sundance – A Perfect Pair for Independence and Sustainability

user
Anyone who visited the festival this year couldn’t help but notice the green water bottles everyone carried on them suspended by a blue carabiner. Brita, in an effort to promote environmental sustainability, provided thousands of water bottles for festival guests to fill up at their Hydration Stations. Sundance Channel HQ, Photo by Michael Korbic In addition to their environmental contributions to the festival, Brita teamed up with The Sundance Institute and Environm...

The Fender Music Lodge Rocks Sundance

user
Fender Security Marcus Zavala, Photo by Michael Korbic The Sundance Film Festival had a lot of music surrounding it this year. One of the central places to unwind and hear some live tunes was the Fender Music Lodge. With different bands performing throughout the day in a very intimate setting, Fender was the place to be. Mandi Perkins of Of Verona, Photo by Dianna Renée During the intimate, live, rock shows, organic, fair trade spirits were served up by Fa...

Sundance Swag is in Full Swing at The Studio On Main

Studio on Main was the home of Moving Pictures Magazine and featured a multitude of awesome products from Fred Segal. Gifts from Piano Necktie, PaddyWax Candles, Tito Loco, Vita Coco, Patron, The Painted Nail, Right Way Nutrition, rides on Segways provided by Another Side Tours and genuine leather bags by Cape Cod Leather were showered upon such celebs as Elizabeth Banks, Tommy Lee, Juno Temple and other. Of course, I was there to sample all the goodies as well ☺. The Walt Whitman candle f...

Roger Corman at Sundance?

How does the king of B and C movies come to dominate the most prestigious film festival for Independent Filmmakers on the planet? This year, a documentary about the life and times of one of the longest running, successful filmmakers in Hollywood made its debut. The documentary centers around Roger Corman, the god of B-rate home cinema who launched the careers of filmmakers such as James Cameron, Francis Ford Coppola and Martin Scorsese. Alex Stapleton's CORMAN'S WORLD: EXPLOITS OF A HOLLYWOO...

50 Cent Takes Over The Sundance Film Festival

The company currently has six feature films wrapped and a 10 picture/$200 million deal firmly in place. Cheetah Vision Films launched at Sundance in 2009. 50 Cent electrified Sundance as he perfo...

Sundance Raps with Lil Jon and Snoop Dogg

user
What do Snoop Dogg, Lil Jon and The Sundance Film Festival have in common?  The World Famous HarryO’s!    It’s Thursday, the opening day of the Sundance Film Festival.  Main Street is a breeze to drive down and the public parking lots are free - as opposed to the harsh $20 they’ll charge starting Friday.  Now I know why a local store clerk at the nearby outlet mall told my friend everyone in Park City hates us festival folk.  At $20 for parking, I’d be bitter too.  ...

Harvey Weinstein attends dinner to honor Holy Rollers at the Sundance Film Festival

Rumors flew around Sundance that Harvey Weinstein attended a Sundance screening of Holy Rollers, directed by Kevin Asch, starring Jesse Eisenberg, Justin Bartha, Ari Graynor, Danny Abeckaser and Q-tip.  While the screening attendance may have been a rumor, there are photos on wireimage.com of the famous distributor on the red carpet of the film's celebration dinner at the "House of Hype&

CineGLAAD at Sundance 2010

CineGLAAD may have not had their infamous "Queer Lounge" this year at Sundance, but that didn't stop the party from happening. They sent their message of anti-defamation with, I must say, a very happening soirée. The LGBT community and friends showed support with a great open bar, friendly faces and lots of dancing. By far, the GLAAD presence in Sundance is always the friendliest and most accepting.
