I bumped into a girl at the red carpet premiere of a Sundance film who was snapping pictures with a Canon pocket cam. When I asked if they were good quality she smiled slyly and said, "Good enough to sell."
Even camera phone pics can make someone cash if they have the eye and the opportunity. Welcome to Sundance 2013. Aside from Cannes and the Oscars, this world-renown indie film fest is one of the best places to spot, photograph or just ogle some of your favorite celebrities- writers, directors, actors, musicians and more- who will flood into Park City, Utah, starting tomorrow, January 17.
We're not promising they will all appear like the princesses at Disneyland. Some cancel last minute. Some hideout in their hotel rooms and some go incognito. Still, if you plant yourself at the hotspots like the Village at the Lift (Lower Main Street), the Sky Lodge, The Music Café and basically the intersection of Main Street and Heber Avenue there's a better than good chance of spotting 'Waldo'.
Here's the 'short' list (in no particular order):
Alexander Skarsgård (True Blood)
Gabriel Mann (Revenge)
Jesse Eisenberg (Social Network)
Shailene Woodley (Secret Life)
Kyle Chandler (Friday Night Lights)
Elizabeth Olsen (Martha Marcy May Marlene)
Chad Michael Murray
Jonathan Groff (Glee's Jesse St James)
Michael C. Hall (Dexter)
Michael Cera (Scott Pilgrim)
Maya Rudolph (Bridesmaids)
Rob Corddry (from the Daily Show)
Sonja Kinski (daughter of Natassja Kinski, granddaughter of Klaus Kinski)
Henry Thomas (E.T.)
