It was 25 years ago this summer, that Danny Elfman served as a creative advisor during the 1989 Composers Lab held at the Sundance Resort.

Soon independent filmmakers and film composers will gather at Skywalker Sound for the 2014 Sundance Institute Music and Sound Design Lab for Feature Film, where they will broaden their skills, deepen their understanding of film music, and better understand how music and sound, together, can enhance the impact of storytelling.

Check out more on the 2014 filmmakers and composers here.

T minus two days to the 2015 Sundance Film Festival.  Hundreds of staff and over 1,800 volunteers are hard at work in Park City, Salt Lake City, Ogden, and Sundance Mountain Resort.

To celebrate all of their work, check out a 2005 time-lapse above of the Festival’s MARC Theatre buildout, showing its amazing transformation from basketball gym to theatre.  It was 10 years ago this year that the Festival introduced the MARC Theatre, formerly known as the Racquet Club Theatre.

Skiing today! I am already sore and managed to get a bit sun burned on my face but it was totally worth it! This is black diamond run, meaning it’s one of the more difficult runs in the resort. I managed to do it twice even though I haven’t skied for a year! So much fun!!
