SXSW Day 1

From the balcony level at the majestic Paramount theater in Austin, I started the festival with Alexander the Last, Joe Swanberg's 5th film in 5 years to premiere at SXSW. Does this man sleep? In a first in terms of distribution platform, it was simultaneously available on demand to cable viewers. Handheld, intimate shots of couples in relationships, being tempted by people they worked with in creative collaborations; lots of talking, staring, thinking, making out. It was sexy and real.

Walking down 6th Street.

I wish I were there with you...weird that I will be there the day after you leave! Glad you are absorbing information and inspiration. Soak it up!
