South by Southwest / by Bill Frakes

Laura and I are in Austin, Texas, this week presenting and shooting at South by Southwest. Austin is always a high energy city, but with the influx of creativity from this conference the city is booming. There is inspiration everywhere you look.

The beginning of this year has kept me and the rest of the Straw Hat Visuals team busy. We’ve shot four music videos, one documentary pieces, taught four workshops, and we’ve flown thousands of miles from Georgia to Sweden to Canada and now Texas.

Among the videos we've shown here is Austin on the Nikon panel, one of our fan favorites is our Backyard Babies music video.

Watching this video makes me even more excited about the videos we will be launching in the next few weeks.
