The lights are dimmed, your heart starts beating a little faster, popcorn in hand, it’s time for a movie.  Thousands of of times per day, this same scenario is played out all over the world.  What did it take for that movie to be created?  How many thousands of hours of writing, acting, editing, begging, pleading, go into getting that story on the big screen?


The Sundance Institute recognizes that being a great story teller is not enough to get your movie made and distributed.  This organization along with the Sundance Film Festival celebrates and helps bring amazing stories to the big screen. 


 Sundance-2015.jpgPolycom is proud to be a partner of the Sundance Institute where they help give life to storyteller's ideas. 


Using Polycom solutions, storytellers can think globally when shooting on location, editing or even creating the music score for a film.  No longer are filmmakers limited geographically by the resources they have. 


Robert Redford, founder of Sundance says Storytellers broaden our minds: engage, provoke, inspire, and ultimately, connect us.”   This sure sounds a lot like how a certain company I know works as well.


During this year's Sundance Film Festival, Polycom will bring in numerous directors to discuss their films with the audiences in Park City.  Using solutions like Polycom CloudAXIS and RealPresence Group Series, audiences and directors will have natural interaction even though they are thousands of miles apart.


If you are at Sundance, please make time to see how Polycom is working behind the scenes.  It is amazing technology that connects us.
