SXSW 2011 Part Two. JAG35 Dreaming In Austin.


One of the best parts of SXSW honestly, was the food. It seemed like everywhere we went there was something tasty to eat. We ended up sneaking into the CNN lounge for three of the four days we were there. This gave us a chance to actually sit down and meet some really cool people. We were lucky enough to hit up Internet Celebrity Julia Allison and the first “video blogger” Steve Garfield for our short documentary about the festival. I guess in many ways the social aspect of SXSW is what really sets it apart from other film festivals. Andrea Allen and Dan Hayek were gracious enough to include some of our footage in this CNN Wrap Up “By The Numbers”.

About two years ago a new Canon camera changed the way the world sees both motion and still photography. He just happened to be in the right place at the right time.
