Sundance Fever 2008

Filmmaker Jamie Stuart Does Sundance

Today we're gonna go meet filmmaker Jamie Stuart in the parking lot of the Albertson's grocery store in Park City (apparently the place where everyone here runs into each other). Jamie has carved out a little niche for himself making digital shorts about movies — especially film festivals. His movies are poetic little glimpses into the culture of filmmaking. Even if you don't always know exactly what's happening, they're always beautiful, full of sly visual cuts, and often very funny.

Check out his work from Sundance last year.

My favorite joke in that one? The name of the movie you never actually hear Sienna Miller and Steve Buscemi talking about? Interview.

You can see more of Jamie's stuff at his website, The Mutiny Company.

I've been following Jamie Stuart for a couple of years now and really think he is quite brilliant! When is he going to do a full length feature??
