Soup – Day 5

Category: Soups Daily Updates — ericsoup @ 11:08 pm

All Sundnace related activity was really based at the end of my day today. Not so true for Paul and Kelly, of course, but at this point, that’s to be expected.

Beagin give a shout out

Another of my favorite bloggers has given props to Forgiven. Check him out, at beagin.com. Shane Beagin be his name, and many interests be his game. I highly recommend the photo section of the site. Shane does with his digital camer what we all wish we did all of the time, take pictures and share them with the world. Luckily he has one of them good photographer’s eyes. Thanks for the mention Shane.

Out on the WEB…………..

Our little blog has made the big time. If you google the words Forgiven and Sundance, the first thing that comes up is this blog. Try it!

We’ve also been deemed worth of entry in one of my personally favorite blogs to read,
And I Am Not Lying, For Real. Jeff Simmermon writes this blog, and I can’t recommend it enough. He’s a gifted writer who’s well traveled, articulate, and just plain interesting to read. As a reader, you’ll get to see a slice of the world through Jeffs eyes as he seeks out the slightly offbeat experiences, all without tossing aside the everyday events, and writing about it all with the same gusto and eye for the cracked out side of life. What better place for a mention of our little film. So in all fairness, he links to us, and I’ll link to him.

Jeff was also there on New Years day this year, when we were all hashing out the gritty details of our lovely poster. He crushed any last morsels of doubt that were lingering in everyones mind as to whether the poster was going in the right direction by giving an impromptu critique in which he very accurately described what he assumed the film was about, judging only from the poster. Nice one Jeff. You set everyone’s mind at rests.

Soup – Day 4 (The Premier!)

Category: Soups Daily Updates — ericsoup @ 11:31 pm

And they’re off!

At about 8:30 P.M. Mountain time, FORGIVEN had its world premier at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival. I think that it can safely be said that the crowd was quite pleased with what they saw.

The big night is upon us. Tonight the film FORGIVEN will be making it’s world premier at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival. I think that it’s fair to say that we’re all giddy with excitement. Paul and Kelly have been on the move all day gearing up for the big night. Bill Ladd and Justin Colvin showed up today too, so now we’re two stronger in the FORGIVEN peanut gallery. Stay tuned for photos and more from the premier…

Paul and Bob…

Sorry that it took me so long to get this up, but here it is. Hopefully I’ve got all the kinks worked out and we can start posting more photos.

Paul – Entry 4

Category: Pauls Words — ericsoup @ 8:57 am

Fortunately this blog isn’t a book on tape because my voice is a little worse for the wear this morning. I was over-served at the Gersh party last night and apparently I was screaming at some point during the evening. Perhaps just trying to talk over the music, ampoule perhaps shouts of exclamation to punctuate my moves on the dance floor—I don’t really recall. But that was an all out blast, shop totally Sundancian in my mind’s eye of what I thought this festival experience would be like. Took a gondola up to this kicky lodge in the pitch dark. And the joint was jumping, great DJ, red wine flowing, all the cast of characters there. My mom and dad and sisters and friends all got in which was so cool, Russell was in top form and I might add was possibly similarly over-served, like myself. Sally was the best, paraded me around a little, a was able to get my groove on, which is important to me. I don’t want to brag, but as far as the dance floor goes I feel as if I ‘still got it,’ so to speak. One unfortunate footnote, as I was departing the dance floor after my last dance, I was pulled back out on the floor by some young lady whom I was not aquainted with—apparently she felt that I ‘still got it’ too. And in a moment of poor judgment I went to toss my water bottle to the floor off to the side so that I could fully avail my unexpected partner of the full range of my dance moves, and I clipped David Gersh in the shin with the bottle. He looked sort of miffed and confused which was understandable; as the host of the party I’m sure he didn’t expect to be treated this way by a guest. And I’m going to apologize to him tonight at the screening and thank him for such a rocking good time last night.

Yesterday was a great day. Game day today, the premiere tonight so I’ll have to cut short my entry today. Will catch up with more tomorrow.
