Looks like something is brewing in Brooklyn. Robert Redford and his brainchild, the Sundance Institute have partnered up with the Brooklyn Academy of Music. The Reeler, always on the scene, gives us coverage of the announcement and New York-based filmmakers something to look forward to. If this entry gives away any indication about the future of a screenwriter/filmmaker lab just across the East River I would be a very happy individual. Redford seems to always have had a fondness for New York City, Brooklyn in particular with regards to Sundance and this venture;
"It all started there, from the very first day," he said. "The bulk of the artists who have come there have been from New York and Brooklyn, and it's been that way all through the 25 years. You get some from San Francisco and a few from L.A., but most of the people from L.A. started in New York anyway."
You mean I might potentially be able to partake in a lab with the likes of Tim Roth and Philip Seymour Hoffman for the price of a Metrocard swipe and a trip on the 2 train? Nice.

Oh yeah, I have to get accepted first.

Anything having to do with filmaking actually taking place in NYC is a thrill for me. It means hopefully I won't have to soon relocate to LA. For some reason though, I think that may be inevitable for all of us...
