Park City rollers

By Ad Published on .

Once again, Park City, Utah, showcased a number of commercials talents at this year's Sundance Film Festival. The event opened with highly feted Riding Giants, Stacy Peralta's impressive surf follow-up to the Nonfiction director's skateboard doc Dogtown and Z-Boys. Documentary seemed to be the form of choice for many others: fellow Nonfictioner Jessica Yu's The Realms of the Unreal examined the life of janitor/artist Henry Darger; David LaChappelle took his lens to the hip-hop clowns in Krumped, edited by Lost Planet's Kim Bica; and Independent Media's Chris Smith (along with Sarah Price and Dan Ollman) aired his latest real-world laffer, The Yes Men, in a special screening.

Others commercials contributors include Anonymous Content and Cucoloris' Christian Johnson, whose September Tapes explores the story of journalist Don Larson-this was the first Western film shot in Afghanistan after the fall of the Taliban. Slingshot editor Jim Rubino cut Lbs., a moving tale of an obese man's attempt to lose weight, directed by Matthew Bonfacio. A pair of shorts from last year's Dreams fest from Y&R and Sony reappeared in Park City-Bryan Buckley's Krug and the Alan Ball-scripted The M Word, directed by MJZ's Rocky Morton.

Offscreen, design company AdamsMorioka, which has in the past partnered on projects with Bob Industries' Dayton & Faris, and also designed the whimsical Bob face logo, crafted the show's vibrant collateral, like the poster seen here.
