SXSW Interactive Day 2: ‘Everything Is A Remix.’ How Creative People Steal to Create New Works.

Kirby Ferguson and Austin Kleon talk about creativity as theft.

  Going into this I figured it was either going to be either incredibly insightful or dreadfully boring. Thankfully, speakers Austin Kleon and Kirby Ferguson possessed enough wit to carry the audience through their discussion on creativity as theft and transformation based on Ferguson’s web series Everything Is A Remix and Kleon’s similar ideas ironically […]

SXSW Day 2: What Went Wrong and Moments of Bliss

One of the most intimidating logos ever.

    The problem with getting things wrong is that you assume that they can only get better from there on. That was definitely not the case today, Saturday May 10, on Day 2 of SXSW’12. The rain hadn’t let up at all from yesterday and Jairo and mine’s initial attempt to find a bus […]

SXSW Movie Review: Pompeya, A movie best forgotten?


(spoliler alert) With so many people entering the film industry at a time when DSLR camera’s can often times be compared to that Hollywood cinematic quality, one can only expect individuals to rise from the obscure depths of independent film making and hope to produce a movie that engages the audience and pulls the viewer […]

DSLR Gear: Film Production in a Carry-On (Or Two)

Brothers and filmmakers Lan Bui and Vu Bui offer advice to SXSW attendees on how to shoot with DSLR's and their weapons of choice.

We are in the midst of a video revolution. This renaissance of video can be compared to the time of 8mm film cameras when people were allowed to create and express new ideas because of the new ease of accessibility to the film camera. Today, many (myself included) turn to the new realm of DSLR […]

SXSW Film Review: Indie Game: The Movie

Q&A following the screening with the filmmakers Lisanne Pajot and James Swirsky

    I’m at that age where videogames just take up too much time. I played The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword over Thanskgiving last year and although I was definitely caught up in a blanket of merriment, b.o and Reese’s Puffs I couldn’t shake the feeling that I should be doing something more productive […]

SXSW First Impressions

The fastest moving line in the world.

  The first day of SXSW is now behind us (The FUHA crew). We considered doing a lot of things today and didn’t get even half of it done. We woke up to bad weather that got worse on our arrival at the Austin Convention Center. It was only due to our limited foresight to pack umbrellas […]
