Waiting For A Red Eye
I left Sundance on Thursday, and am still waiting to get home. Toby and I flew straight to Las Vegas to shoot one of those things we shoot to pay the bills for two days, which immediately put so much distance between us and those two weeks up in the mountains that it all feels remarkably distant now, to the point that it's a bit shocking to realize that there are still people there, right now, celebrating wins and toasting friends.
This was my fourth time at Park City, and the first where in between movies certain toothsome wheels clicked into place and various machinations began to turn in what felt like a fairly significant way. I saw fewer films than ever (only 11) and was busier than ever, except for the last day where I spent a necessarily long time doing laundry.
The whole thing was just wonderful and exhausting and beautiful and snowy, and that's not even counting the Screenwriting Labs because I can't really talk about those right now. At the moment I'm sitting at the gate, waiting for this flight to board and considering all the work we have to do to finish this music video before leaving for LA in four days to continue the chain of events set in motion last week. I'm too tired to put together the words necessary to imply how gracious I am that I'm this tired. Trust me, I've got some ebullience stored deep down - I'm just keeping it safe.
