Must Watch: Sundance 2014 Pre-Film Bumper Honors Festival Greats
We're still going strong here at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival (check out all of our coverage here), and while you'll have to wait awhile to see many of the films we're checking out in Park City, Utah, there's still a little part of the festival you can experience for yourself. Before every single film we see here at the festival, it's a custom that there's some sort of bumper that Sundance produces to play before the films. It's usually some sort of cool tribute to independent film with a special focus on the films discovered at the fest. This new one uses the festival's most recognizable theater, The Egyptian, in a really cool way. Watch it!
As you can see, many of the great indie discoveries from the film festival are represented from Reservoir Dogs to Winter's Bone. There's also Clerks (celebrating with an anniversary screening at the festival this year) with a great use of Jay and Silent Bob hanging out on the side of the theater like their own Quick Stop. And you can spot plenty of other films represented like Garden State, Real Women Have Curves, Napoleon Dynamite, The Hudsucker Proxy and many more. Everything you see was projection mapped onto the actual theater and filmed on location (we wish we could see more titles on the left side marquee), and at night there are trippy designs project on the theater during the festival this year. Cool?
