FROM SAND TO SNOW, FLORIDA TO UTAH
January 24, 2018
A last minute call took us off our planned course to Park City, Utah for the Sundance Film Festival and to The North American Bitcoin Conference (TNABC) in Miami, Florida where Patrick Byrne, the founder and former CEO of Overstock.com was representing tZERO as the keynote speaker.
Bitcoin and cryptocurrency in general are all the rage and there was no better example than this jam packed convention. Our mission was to document the company’s presence all over town, from the convention to their exciting after parties featuring Flo Rida. All while recording interviews with key corporate officers at the world famous Villa Casa Casuarina, formerly known as the Versace Mansion. As we were recording the interviews in one of the home’s many bedrooms, the premiere of FX‘s American Crime Story:The Assassination of Gianni Versace (starring Penélope Cruz) was going on right below us in the extravagant pool area. Work always comes first, but for us fun is always part of the equation as you can see here with Rob and his wine.
After our job was done in Miami, we hopped on another plane and headed about 7,000 feet up to the mountains just outside of Salt Lake City for the premiere of one of the festival’s favorites, Hereditary, featuring our friend Milly Shapiro. We also took a large step towards the distribution of Abnormal Attraction (there will be much more news coming soon) and of course we had to hit some of the city’s world famous slopes before heading home.
