For the third year, The Times’ Sundance Film Festival studio presented by Chase Sapphire welcomed a slew of the fest’s biggest, brightest and freshest stars and creators — from “Bad Hair” breakout Elle Lorraine to “Beast Beast” executive producer Alec Baldwin.

Updating daily through Jan. 28, these shots from Times staff photographer Jay L. Clendenin (with an assist from Kent Nishimura) capture the style, creativity and silliness of Sundance filmmakers.
