"$!#! % A n artist ’s muse can come in unexpected forms. For Kevin Bowden, it was an off-hand comment from his girlfriend about a store that inspired his entry for the Utah Film Commission’s “Spot On” commercial contest. The Utah Valley University digital media major, who lives in Murray, had struggled to develop an idea for how to showcase Utah for filmmakers in a 30-second

spot. “I was walking out of class at school, and my girlfriend said there was a place called “Color Me Mine,” Bowden recalled. “Those words kept sticking in my head.” That is when he conceived of a movie showing an artist using Utah’s resources — snow, salt, sand, forests — in the style of Jackson Pollack to paint an abstract picture of the state.

If you were forecasting Reflect Scientific’s future like the weather, you’d have to say prospects were for cool, if not downright cold, temperatures. But that’s a good thing for the small Orem company. Reflect Scientific is marketing a cooling system for refrigerated trailer trucks that gets rid of the diesel engines that power today’s models. With about 350,000 refrigerator trucks on U.S. highways, that could mean a big reduction in diesel use and in emissions at a time of cost trimming and concerns about Please see REFLECT, E3

Special to The Tribune

Sadie Clements’ recent scoring surge has turned Springfield’s already potent offense into a two-player game — at least on the stat sheet. The Sacramento State signee now has consecutive 20-point games, including a season-high 25 last week at Uintah. Clements has averaged 22 points over the last four games, moving alongside BYU signee Lexi Eaton as a 20-point-a-night player during Region 8 play. Eaton and Clements are not only a strong two-player combination, they’re adept at getting their teammates involved in the scoring. If you can help your teammates get a look, you’re going to get a few more good looks yourself as a result. “That’s exactly what I tell them,” said Springville coach Nancy Warner. “Sadie is playing unselfish basketball and it’s paying off for both her and her teammates. She’s making the passes and stepping up to hit the big shots. “It’s not just a two-man show,” Warner added. “What I like is they give great passes to each other and to their teammates to get everybody involved.” Clements’ surge has helped the Red Devils remain unbeaten and maintain their status as one of Utah’s elite teams. Springville put up 70 points on back-to-back nights last week and had 53 points in three periods before Warner cleared the bench midway through the fourth quarter of Friday’s 6536 rout of Salem Hills. Eaton’s still getting her looks as she maintains her lead in 4A scoring and her nip-tuck battle for the overall scoring title with Layton Christian’s Jasmine Porter, who retained a half-point lead (25.5-25.0) entering this week’s play.

unit, Reflect Scientific has an eclectic range of products, many gathered through its acquisitions. Its laboratory supplies are sold to hospitals and diagnostic laboratories, pharmaceutical and biotech companies, universities, government and private research facilities, and chemical and industrial companies. Reflect Scientific is working on a joint venture to use the nitrogen-based freezer units to store biological products such as stem and cancer cells. It also can provide cooling for computer server rooms, which Boyce said saves companies money and also reduces the use of carbon fuels. The company also has a line of chemical-detection instruments sold in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology and homeland security markets. It also sells factory automation equipment. The company employs about 20 people in facilities in Orem and Bozeman, Mont. It has a market capitalization of $6.43 million. Its shares trade over-the-counter at around 18 cents. The company has been running at a loss as it uses cash and new capital to make acquisitions, according to its 2008 annual report to the Securities and Exchange Commission.

climate change caused by burning carbon-based fuels. “If the 350,000 trucks in the field replaced the existing technology, they would save up to a billion gallons of diesel fuel a year if they used our technology,” said Kim Boyce, founder and CEO and chairman of Reflect Scientific. “That’s a big deal but, even further than that, they would save about 30 billion pounds of carbon going into the air.” What allows the company to brag that its cooling unit “virtually runs on air” is its use of liquid nitrogen. Nitrogen is captured from the air, where it makes up 78 percent of volume of the Earth’s atmosphere. When pulled out of the atmosphere, the gas becomes a liquid with a temperature of minus 210 degrees Celsius (minus 346 Fahrenheit). Reflect Scientific combines the nitrogen with its technology to make coolers and freezers, including the trailer cooling unit. Boyce founded the company in 1993 in Mountain View, Calif. He moved it to Utah in 1999 with the name Cole Inc. In 2003, Cole acquired Reflect Scientific Inc., a California corporation, and changed its name.

Reflect Scientific Inc. started trading shares in 2004, using money it raised to carry out a string of acquisitions and mergers that brought it new products. “We looked at it at one point and said the only way to continue to grow was to bring some more money into the company, so let’s just go public,” Boyce said. In 2006, it bought Cryomastor and its business of ultra-low temperature freezer systems powered by liquid nitrogen. Those products were the basis for the truck trailer cooling unit. The units sell from $25,000 to $30,000, or about the same as the traditional diesel-powered model. It slips into the same space as the previous cooler. Reflect Scientific introduced the new unit last year at the Great West Truck Show. One trucking company is testing it, while Reflect Scientific readies another test with a “very large grocery chain,” Boyce said. “These grocery chains and companies want to go green and they don’t want to emit pollutants,” he said. “It makes them look good, will save them money in the long run and it’s the right thing to do.” The company sees about a $10 billion potential market for the system.

won the commission’s Creative Concept Award, which means Bowden will get to direct a professional film crew in reshooting his movie, which will be shown as a TV commercial during next year’s Sundance Film Festival. Co-workers on the spot included Tasha Neilson, set designer/producer, and codirector Brandon Sandberg. For the past seven years, the commission has sponsored the contest for student filmmakers to create a 30-second spot promoting Utah as a movie location. The winning entry gets shown on Park City Television during the independent film festival. The concept award goes to a filmmaker whose idea shows promise but could benefit from being reshot by a professional film crew under the filmmaker’s direction. Marshall Moore, the film commission’s director, said the creative concept award was developed three years ago to honor filmmakers who were on the right track but needed help to bring their vision to full fruition. “Great ideas shouldn’t be penalized,” Moore said. In Bowden’s case, Moore said judges wanted to see some other aspects of filmmaking driven home as well, such as raising money to make a film in Utah. He said a professional film crew will donate its services to

well as go back and do things with the film he couldn’t do at the time due to technical limitations. His original plan was to have the artist making the painting become part of the work as he gets covered with the colors he’s using. Plus, he’s going to be able to shoot it with high-definition digital cameras, something he didn’t have access to at UVU. Bowden’s first foray into filmmaking was a class he took in high school, which he thought was fun. In college, while trying to decide on a major, Bowden decided to take a film course, which reminded him of his high-school experience and helped him decide on his major. His favorite directors are the Coen brothers (“O Brother, Where Art Thou”); Spike Jonze (“Where the Wild Things Are”); and David Fincher (“Fight Club”) for the heart and soul they put into their films. So far, Bowden’s shot seven student films, and tends to like comedies. But he also wants to expand his repertoire. “Ultimately, I would like to work in every genre,” Bowden said. Trim said UVU digital media students also work on projects in Africa and Mongolia, as well as learn how to use digital media in other fields.

Bowden to reshoot the project, Moore said. This year’s main prize — and $3,000 — went to Tennille Olsen and Will Thomas of Pleasant View, for their film “No Lens is Wide Enough for Utah.” Bowden and Bob Trim, an assistant professor of digital media at UVU, say winning the concept award was a coup for both the filmmaker and his school. “Our program at UVU is very hands-on,” Trim said. “We push the students to get out there and work.” True learning, Trim said, happens outside the classroom when students put their knowledge into practice. Trim said Bowden entered the contest on his own, and Trim was more than willing to let Bowden disappear for four days to shoot his film. Bowden said it took about a week in the editing booth to put it together, selecting the best shots for the spot. For Bowden, the award means the chance to direct a professional film crew, as

Community gardens soon could sprout from dozens of public properties throughout the Salt Lake Valley, breaking soil outside the Holladay Lions Recreation Center, near Riverton’s South County Pool and within Sandy’s Dimple Dell Regional Park. These tracts of tillable public land are part of Salt Lake County’s urban-farming initiative, which will transform more than 150 acres of unused government property into planting grounds for beans, beets, even biofuel. It ’s a return to the valley’s agrarian past that County Councilman Jim Bradley championed last summer to put the public’s fallow turf to use producing food or fuel. “Before we put [this land] to some beneficial use in terms of recreation or a park — which may be long time in coming,” Bradley said, “we might as well put it to beneficial use for food production.” Now, the county is getting into the nitty-gritty details of where to put those farms.

Joan Rivers works her fame &"!%$!(# ' The iconic comedian exposes her face — and her life — in Sundance documentary. By DAVID BURGER

The Salt Lake Tribune

Imagine a close-up shot of 76-year-old Joan Rivers without makeup. That’s the first scene of a new film about the iconic comedian, screening in Sundance’s U.S. documentary competition. The opening offers an immediate reveal, exhibiting how the trailblazing female comic isn’t afraid of being vulnerable in front of the filmmakers who trailed her for 14 months. “At this age, I am what I am,” Rivers said in an interview before her trip to Sundance, and before she saw the film about her. “When I turned 70, I said,

‘Visual album’ from Animal Collective &"!%$!(# ' New Frontier film much more than a longform music video, director, band say. By DAVID BURGER

The Salt Lake Tribune

Before the debut of his Sundance film “ODDSAC,” director Danny Perez expected a lot of questions about his “visual album.”

After all, that name isn’t the only quirky thing about his 53-minute abstract film that’s on the wavelength of the music of Animal Collective, the experimental, boundary-stretching poprock New York City band. Opening with torch-wielding villagers and a wall bleeding oil, “ODDSAC” is an experimental, psychedelic film without a concrete narrative. Animal Collective’s music — enough for a new album Please see ANIMAL, E8

Animal Collective is a band that is the subject of an experimental film screening at Sundance.

Get your eyes full of “ODDSAC”

≥ Continued from E1

— plays throughout the film, which is screening in Sundance’s New Frontier category. If you have seen an Animal Collective video, you have an introductory sense of “ODDSAC,” which was a three-year project for the director and the musicians. Perez, who has known the band for a decade, also directed many of the band’s impressionistic videos. “I’ve always considered myself inspired more by music than movies,” Perez said. “Movies can be a little more open-minded. With movies, it can be somewhat literal. I appreciate the head-space music gives me.” Without dialogue or a traditional plot, for locals the film might bring to mind the Clark Planetarium’s “U2” film, where the band’s music is married to abstract images that ebb and flow on the planetarium’s expansive dome. Brian Weitz, 30, a founding member of the band who provides electronic sound manipulations and samples for its music, is known as The Geologist because of a head lamp he wears while performing. The former Arizonian talked about the band’s aesthetic, collaborating with a longtime friend and filmmaker, and finding the playfulness and fear in the marriage of psychedelic music and images. Where did you meet Danny Perez? In 2001, on our first tour he was selling merch for Black Dice, who had invited us on the road, and we became pretty good friends immediately. Similarly to how it works within Animal Collective, our shared aesthetic with Danny comes from the friendship. It’s the result of countless hours spent laughing together, traveling together, watching movies and listening to music. His ideas about visuals are similar in a lot of ways to our ideas about sound, in terms of the

Where did the idea of doing a film come from? The original idea for this film started with an offer from Plexifilm to make a tour documentary when we were going on the road in early 2006. We weren’t interested in doing something like that for a bunch of reasons, but we were excited about the idea of releasing a DVD, and we started thinking about how we could do something that would seem a bit more special to us that would fit better with our aesthetic. Did music inspire the film, or was it the other way around? Both actually. That was the guiding idea behind the whole project. We didn’t want to write a record and then have Danny do a long music video, and Danny didn’t want to make a film for which we would write a soundtrack. We came up with a process where we could continually pass material back and forth so that the visuals and sound influenced each other until some sort of structure started to take shape. Three years later, we were inserting split-second sounds to go along with specific frames, and Danny was moving split-second shots to match up with a specific sound in the music. What do you hope audiences get out of this multimedia experience? We aim to please ourselves and then hope that others will find something in it. “ODDSAC” definitely appeals to a very specific part of some of us in Animal Collective that finds


enjoyment in things that simultaneously overwhelm and unsettle. It’s the same part that enjoys psychedelic experiences and music and film that references them. It’s the same part that likes being scared by horror movies because along with the fear is a sense of playfulness. When we were growing

up, we searched for music and films that incorporated those things, and we still do today. Tell me about your experiences in Utah. I used to live in Arizona and I drove up to Utah a few times to go hiking and camping. I think southern Utah is one of the most beautiful places in the

country. When I worked in environmental policy in [Washington, D.C.], I was friends with a bunch of people who worked for the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance. As for Sundance, it [is] my first time, though I have been to Park City once when the festival wasn’t going on. ... A friend of mine told me

a story in which he was selling a bunch of limited-edition clothing on eBay and the winning bidder was really intense about receiving it before Sundance so he could have it to wear at the after-parties. Not sure what to say about that.

The voices — and faces — of Anna Deavere Smith &"!%$!(# ' The actor performs at a panel to underscore the relevance of artistic storytelling. By ELLEN FAGG WEIST

The Salt Lake Tribune

6+9/ (34% . Actor and playwright Anna Deavere Smith channeled three reallife characters from “Let Me Down Easy,” her docudrama about health care and mortality. The Egyptian Theatre performance on Jan. 28 was part of Sundance festival programming aimed at making the case for the cultural relevance of the arts and dramatic storytelling. Smith is familiar from TV and movie roles (“Nurse Jackie,” “The West Wing,” “The American President”). “Let Me Down Easy,” her onewoman, 20-character play, was well-reviewed in its offBroadway run last fall. The show grew out of a commission in 2000 from the Yale University School of Medicine to perform characters based on doctors and patients for grand medical rounds. From there, she conducted more than 300 interviews on three continents and spent years transforming her interviews into 20 characters who cross racial, political and class divides. She describes the process simply. “I interview people and take their words and perform that,” said Smith, a New York University professor of performance studies. “I come home and turn it into theater. Each of the people understands something I don’t.” While creating characters from real people might be unique, Smith’s craft as a performer is based on her classical acting training and experience. “I come out in the light, and the audience is in the dark, and I try to get through it all,” she said. The elusive part is in the transformation of words into character. To make her

Muslims in a building shaped just like Mecca’s sacred Kaaba, makes “The Taqwacores” every bit an American story as it is a Muslim one, the director said. How did you come across Michael “Muhammad” Knight and his book? I just came across the term “Taqwacore” on a Wikipedia page on the Internet. Everything sort of stopped for a minute. Then I sought out the book at an independent bookstore and read it in one sitting. It said out loud so many things I’d thought myself about being an American and a Muslim. It dealt with so many discussions people try to sweep under the rug. I then sent Knight my first short film, “Stringed Instruments.” When we met, it was at Malcolm X’s former mosque in New York City. I was just this young filmmaker right out of film school, and he trusted me with his story. There were many opportunities he could have taken with someone more established than me. How is the story both American and Muslim? The story of becoming an all-encompassing individual rather than being told what you are or should be is just an eternal story of youth, and American youth really. Strip away the Muslim vernacular, and it’s a very American narrative. But it’s also Muslim because if you’re young and Muslim in America you’re also struggling to find your unique identity. In my upbringing I’d only seen Islam as a Middle Eastern attachment. We as

Whatever the media does in terms of stories about Islam that are picked up is really beyond our control. All we can do is pick stories of our own and tell people who we are. This movie shows what normal American Muslims are dealing with. The other stuff that happens in Yemen, that’s not who we are as American Muslims. How do you handle co-religionist critics who are more conservative than you are? The Koran is really a mirror to yourself. You seek what you want out of it. There are Muslims who might not consider me Muslim, but to this day I still fast during Ramadan. It really comes back to being cultural rather than religious. Those two are constantly mixed and matched. You have to be careful about figuring that out. My mother isn’t huge on my film. She doesn’t agree with it. But my grandfather on my mother’s side, who’s memorized the entire Quran, was always absolutely ecstatic about me becoming a filmmaker. If not for him, I might not have done this film, because it seemed as if everyone was against it.

But O’Nan and Ferrera have a tender chemistry and make the couple’s struggles with post-traumatic stress authentic. Melissa Leo, “Welcome 4" 45: 13,:%8' . For all the hype about Kristen Stewart’s two movies at Sundance (this one and “The Runaways”), it’s Leo who really deserves this year’s title of Miss Sundance. In this movie, Leo shines as an agoraphobic wife who blossoms when she drives out of her Indianapolis driveway and on to New Orleans. (Leo, an Oscar nominee for the Sundance ’08 jury winner “Frozen River,” also appears in “The Dry Land.”) Jesse Eisenberg, “Holy 1",,:98' . Even when this “inspired by true events”

Malin Akerman, “happythankyoumoreplease” . While writer-director-star Josh Radnor is getting the applause for this interlocking set of romantic scenarios, it’s Akerman who steals the show. Akerman — who is usually relegated to pretty supporting roles (“Couples Retreat,” “Watchmen”) — is the movie’s heart, as the sunny best friend who has lost her hair to alopecia. She even shaved her eyebrows for the part. Juliette Lewis and Laura Linney, “Sympathy for De,3#3"28' . Not everyone has liked this mix of gritty realism and morality parable

about a paralyzed DJ (Christopher Thornton, who wrote it) who discovers he has healing powers. But the lead female performances, by Lewis as a tragic rocker and Linney as a seductive record exec, are outstanding. Joseph Gordon-Levitt, 7-:85:9' . The “(500) Days of Summer” star keeps viewers guessing as a trickster character who infiltrates the life of a grieving 13-year-old (Devin Brochu) — in a performance so commanding that even director Spencer Susser isn’t sure what to do with it.

The moment she heard the title in our question, she clapped her hands and laughed! Though she was concerned that perhaps this was how all American movies were made (she was newly transplanted from her native South Africa at the time), she was struck with Raimi’s enthusiasm and is proud the film still resonates with audiences. – Kim McDaniel and Darren Ewing

Joan Jett’s the boss -;A?A 4 Soundcheck Jan. 23 at Harry O’s, Park City -;0: ;0!!A%A" 4 I was lucky enough to catch the end of Joan Jett & The Blackhearts’ soundcheck. I recognized one of the songs, “(Just Around the Corner to the) Light of Day,” and recognized it from a Bruce Springsteen performance. Naturally, I assumed it was a song by the Boss. After her soundcheck ended, her publicist asked if I wanted to meet Jett. But I wanted to seem cool, so I casually walked over to Jett, exchanged pleasantries, and nonchalantly complimented her on her cover of the Springsteen song. She looked at me for a second, a little perturbed, and then said that it wasn’t a cover. Springsteen had written the song for her, she said, and it appeared in the 1987 film “Light of Day,” starring her. A publicist over my shoulder told her to relax, that I was only a kid. I laughed awkwardly, and meekly walked away. – David Burger

Some question -;0: ;0!!A%A" 4 I got to the red carpet of “Sympathy for Delicious” late having just gotten out of another film. When I got there, the fenced area for the press was packed with TV reporters and photographers. I found a place between a reporter from an out-of-state TV station, a Canadian station and someone from “Entertainment Israel.” As the actors and producers made their way through the line, screenwriter Christopher Thornton wheeled his way to our area. The reporter began her question with “Christopher, you know there are a lot of quadriplegics in Israel...” I was too embarrassed to stick around for the rest of the question and his answer. The screenwriter is clearly not a quadriplegic, as he was moving his hands to control his wheelchair. I looked around to see other reporters rolling their eyes, and was glad not to be the only one appalled by the assumption. – Roxana Orellana
