Wednesday was "Volunteer Appreciation Day" at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, a day to honor the 1,850 unpaid folks who make the festival run.
Festival organizers marked the day with a surprise – a two-minute short film playing before movies.
The film, "No Good Deed...," shows a guy named Derek (played by actor Derek Waters) waiting for a ride outside the Egyptian, and shivering without a coat. A couple of Sundance volunteers walk by, and offer him one of the ubiquitous orange Kenneth Cole coats that volunteers wear. A moment later, some other volunteers drive up and, mistaking Derek for a fellow volunteer, drop off two boxes, saying "take these down to the box office."
