As a video production company, johnnypuetz is committed to helping clients bring their vision to life. We value all facets of storytelling, and we also love adventure! So when Civic asked us to join them at the Sundance Film Festival to capture the scene at the Audible and Variety Magazine activation, we put together a four-person team and flew out to Park City, Utah.
We knew this would be a great project, as we’ve gotten to be a part of some other amazing shoots with Civic and Audible, including at the Tribeca Film Festival, New York and San Diego Comic Con, an exclusive John Legend performance, and an activation at Art Basel in Miami.
This time, Audible partnered with Variety Magazine to open an activation at the festival’s main hub, which hosted the Audible listening lodge - an area for the public’s enjoyment - and the Variety Studio presented by Audible, a space for exclusive interviews of top actors and film makers, nightly panel discussions, and even the official launch party for Eileen, a new film starring Anne Hathaway and Thomasin McKenzie.
We truly enjoyed seeing the best of what Sundance had to offer! A-listers and film industry leaders were interviewed by Variety Magazine and we made sure that all the important moments were caught on camera. We worked with the likes of Emilia Clarke, Jason Momoa, Jennifer Connelly, Nicholas Braun, Sofia Coppola, and many others - we took photos and recorded video of their interviews as they spoke about their projects.
We were super impressed by the incredible design and attention to detail that Chantal Smith, Creative Director at Civic, showcased throughout the activation. Our clean shots of the interior and exterior of the space aimed to show the inviting designs that enhanced the Sundance Film Festival experience for festival goers and industry insiders alike. As part of our B-roll package, we also captured the magic of Sundance and Park City throughout the week.
We were very fortunate to have been part of an incredible series of events at Sundance, and look forward to working with Civic and Audible in the future. In fact, they’ve invited us to join them at SXSW in Austin, Texas next month. Stay tuned to see what they have prepared for you there, or better yet, look out for the Audible activation if you’re in town!
