I'm sure you're probably already aware of that online virtual world called Second Life, and how the Sundance Channel has created a little island within Second Life in an attempt to bring indie fanatics from around the world together in one spot for screenings, interviews, parties and extra special exclusives. Recently, the Sundance Island officially opened up shop with a free screening of the buzzed-about flick Four Eyed Monsters, with directors Arin Crumley and Susan Buice on hand to answer questions afterwards.
Since things worked so well, Crumley and Buice have been asked to travel to Sundance to shoot daily videos which will be broadcast through YouTube as part of a collaboration (their first) with the Sundance Channel. Like Cinematical (which should be your first source for all things Sundance), the two filmmakers will skip around town interviewing filmmakers, attending panels, parties and (I imagine) having a blast, all the while providing us with the kind of uninhibited creativity they're known for.
And, for a sneak peak at what they have in store for us, Cinematical exclusively brings you their first official Sundance video -- essentially, an introduction to what lies ahead. Enjoy! (Oh, and if you're heading to Sundance and run into Crumley and Buice along the way, be sure to tell them Cinematical says hi.)
