Caleb Peyman–Cinematic Immersion

 The Sundance/Slamdance experience has proven to be a week-plus immersion into U.S. and international cinema.  Through persistence, sleep deprivation (3-4 hours of sleep per night, with the occasional mid-day nap), and walking with purpose I was able to attend 23 features, 10 shorts, 2 panels, and several New Frontier installations.

The post-film Q&A sessions were insightful and generally increased my appreciation for the films.  While I did see several films that I had sought out specifically for the cast and crew involved, for the most part, the standout films were those that I had little to no familiarity with beforehand.  Taking a chance and being introduced to the work of emerging and first-time filmmakers was definitely refreshing and fruitful.
