The Apocalypse is hilarious. Although paramedics have to be smart, but I still dig it.

Love that one. Surprised the guy took that long to have an idea in the presence of towel girl, though... just saying!

Can you recommend one or more blogs that have good daily Sundance coverage?
Also, I tried to reply here on my iPhone, iOS 6.0.1, on Safari, and it kept crashing, so I couldn't make it happen. Just thought I'd pass it on. I know you're probably working on a mobile version of the site.

A few: IndieWire, Filmmaker Magazine, Variety, The Hollywood Reporter.

"When Zombies Come" has shown me tonight that considering that made it into Sundance, anything is possible. Anything.

Egad. Same with "Movie Made At Home #6"!
I understand shorts are like little jokes in a way. There's a setup, a build up, and a pay off. But if you're more or less literally going to tell a joke, at least make it funny. Make us appreciate the build up. Instead of not having one.

I'm a little shocked at the fact that some of these made it as well. I can go on vimeo staff picks and instantly find shorts I like much better.. Which is fine. Film is subjective and Sundance is obviously looking for particular flavors. I don't think a short needs to be a little joke however. There are some well done shorts out there that really leave you with something.

I'm out here in Park City, so if you guys need or want footage of anything, I can surely help out!

I think the BLACK METAL is the best. Good cinematography, nice drama plot, hero has flaw and needs to re-think something... It can be a good, character-driven, drama-movie.

Thanks for posting these. If I have some free time in the coming week, I may check these out. Congratulations to everyone who has been accepted into Sundance and for those who are in Park City, I hope you're having a great time.

Any chance of getting some information on what equipment was used on all these? I know that Broken Night was a D800, and Movies Made From Home #X on an iPhone.
But can anyone find anything more about the rest?

Irish Folk Furniture. Why are so many of them so gruesome??
