SUNDANCE PICS

Ok, here's the scoop. I went to Sundance this year to attend VIP parties and to meet investors for our next film. I went to schmooze and to beg for money. $2.5 million to be exact. I attended:


Seattle Filmmakers VIP Dinner
THANK YOU FOR SMOKING Afterparty
The Hollywood Reporter Party
Seattle Sundance VIP Party
ART HOUSE CONFIDENTIAL Afterparty


In addition, I met with 9 potential investors who all seemed very interested in the project I'm currently producing. One actually shook my hand and said, "I can offer the first $1 million." I'm telling you, man. 2006 will be the year.

The Seattle Filmmakers VIP Dinner. This was superb. Just 20 VIPs sitting around a lodge talking film and business.
The THANK YOU FOR SMOKING afterparty. This was taken at about 12:30am.

Is it just me, or is there some semblance between you and Brian...and...er...Hannity and Moore? ;)

You guys really ARE getting into this, aren't you.

Anonymous is just jealous.

Can you give us some tabloidish gossip!? Is Aaron dating a SheDaisy?

Steven Greenstreet said...

Ok, I've gotten Dicaprio before, even the lead singer of The Killers. But not Hannity. Now, I"ve heard everything. The only way I could look like Hannity is if I had my head covered in feces from having it rammed up my ass too long.

Bryan said...

Umm... I don't know how to take that.

John said...

I thought it was accurate. One of you is a total prick, while the other is well liked and committed to their beliefs

You figure out which is which...

;)

Steven Greenstreet said...

Dude, I am totally the prick. Because I get to go to Sweden with my film, and you don't. If that doesn't make me a prick, then I don't know what does.

Mr. Steven G. Greenstreet,

When I took a gander at these pix you took of yourself all dolled-up I just about fell on the floor laughing! That fashion scarf, Those "Just-call-me Bono" sunglasses and your well-coiffed do!

Tell me, how many hours did it take you to primp? And was "Preperation H" involved?

Steven, I have never met you so I am in no position to say if you are in fact a "PRICK" or not. But let's just say if someone told me that you were a prick, it wouldn't surprise me in least after looking at these vainity photos you took of yourself.

Congratulations on the film however, I haven't seen it yet but it looks quite interesting. I checked out the clips you posted on your site and it looks fairly good. Is it available for rent? Sorry for making fun of your photos. I just couldn't resist.

First of all, don't worry. I understand. Most ugly people feel threatened by my looks. With or without sunglasses. But, that's just me being a prick.

As for the film, yes it's out nationwide on DVD. But it at Borders Bookstore, Barnes and Noble, Best Buy, or the best place to buy it: Amazon.

Duckie Butters said...

Mr. Steven A. Greenstreet,

Oh I forgot to mentiion one of the funniest things about those pictures. I love the fact that it's snowing outside yet you are still wearing your sunglasses. Most people wear sunglasses to keep the sun out of their eyes. You obviously wear them to try and look cool. Now that's FUNNY, not to mention proof positive that I am barking up the right tree here with accusations of your narcisistic pretty boy complex.

As for your video, I never said I wanted to buy it. But I might consider renting it. Can I find it for rent anywhere?

Steven Greenstreet said...

No, I actually wear sunglasses when it's snowing to piss people like you off. I know you totally lose sleep over it. You're all like, "NO! Steve! Sunglasses! NO! Snowing! Arrrrrrggggghhhhhh!!!!!!!"

LOL. But, seriously, you need to get that sand out of your vagina.

Yes, you can rent it at the Movie Trading Company in front of the University Mall.

Word up.

Mr. Steven Y. Greenstreet,

Aren't you some Mormon kid living in some Mormon town? I thought you Mormons didn't curse and all that jazz. What's your beef? If you are considering other religious options, you might give the Unitarians a try. They are really laid back. You don't even have to believe in God. Pretty cool huh?

By the way, If you want to really laugh yourself into tears you need to tune into this show I saw last week. It's called "Extreme Make-Over: Home Edition" It totally sucks! But the hilarious part is when this weeny guy with gel in his hair comes on and tries to be all cool and zany it's painfully obvious that his "I just woke up" hair-do took him some serious time. Check it out, it totally sucks! But I think you could get some good fashion tips from some of the cast especially the guy with the messy coiff-job.

-Duckie Butters

PS.

I think he was even wearing sunglasses indoors last week.

Steven Greenstreet said...

Yes, I'm Mormon. Yes, I say "fuck". No, I don't want to be a Unitarian.

And I am way to hip to watch "Extreme Makeover". Only fat and ugly people watch that show. Fat and ugly Unitarians especially.

Bryan said...

What is going on here?

Pico said...

Bryan,
stick to the political stuff. Oh wait, you don't what is going on there either.

duckie butters said...

Well, Mr. Greenstreet,

I called the Blockbuster, the Hollywood Video and a local ma and pop that carries a lot of indie stuff here in San Diego and nobody has heard of your video. Nobody has it for rent.

So you have given those of us living outside of Provo, Utah two options #1 Drive up to Provo, Utah and rent a copy or #2 buy a copy online?

Who is your distributor? I thought you had some killer distibution deal lined up that was going to get your product out there.

When most people say they have national distribution that means they have NATIONAL DISTRIBUTION. All I'm saying is that your product just ain't out there.

If I were you, I would be jumping all over your distribution company because wake up Stevie it's 2006! I can't imagine that the demand for this video is going to increase with each passing year.

Steven,
lay off Mr Butters, your film isn't available anywhere in the bay area either. Neither Blockbuster or Hollywood have it in stock, nor do they have any plans to get it in. They told me that it is regional (I don't know what region Utah is in) Any Schlubb can get something on Amazon, but that doesn't mean you have national distrubution.

Steven Greenstreet said...

Ok, fuckheads, here's the list of where you can buy and/or rent the DVD nationally:

Borders Bookstore
Barnes and Noble
Suncoast
Sam Goody
Best Buy
Soundgarden (east coast)
Amazon
Movie Trading Company (midwest)
Blockbuster.com
CineFile (LA)
Facets Video (Chicago)
Le Video (San Francisco)
Dog Ear Movies (Illinois)
Kim's Video (New York)
Videoteque (Pasadena)
Scarecrow Video (Seattle)
and there's, like 200 others, so I'm not going to write them all down.
