Oprah Winfrey Network
It’s not very often that someone launches a new television network. When Oprah decided to launch OWN and to announce her support of the independent documentary film industry, her network called TMN Events to coordinate this event. All of the typical things were requested….registration, transportation, lodging, f/b, activities and the list goes on. But when Oprah herself tags along for the ride, the energy level skyrockets. Things as simple as transportation to and from the launch event are very challenging, especially when Oprah decides to jump out on Main Street in Park City, Utah for a shopping spree during the Sundance Film Festival. Our driver and security detail was up to the task of managing the crowd of some 1500 people that crowded outside the store she was locked in……..and safely returned her to our waiting vehicle for her escape.
