SXSW: Documenting Music

SXSW with Kerry Blu

In March, I road tripped across the south from North Carolina to Texas with Kerry Blu (http://www.kblumusic.com/) and his band to make a documentary about their first trip to South by Southwest. 

The plan was to drive for 18 hours and have a few hours before the show to freshen up, as they say. Of course it didn't really happen this way, and we arrived an hour and a half before we had to go on.

GET TO THE STAGE!

GET TO THE STAGE!

We rushed to meet our producer, Camron Lawrence, who was already at the festival with our festival passes and the parking hookup. We rushed to the venue and made it just in time to setup comfortably. 

The crew really killed it. SXSW has such a tangible atmosphere of ambition and creativity, and being able to help document it was wild.
