One Week Before SXSW!

2 Comments 01 March 2013

  It’s one week before SXSW starts and one week and one day before the premiere of our film Loves Her Gun. I’m nervous and I’m excited and hopeful and fearful. What if no one likes the film? What if during the film, the audience collectively rises in a wave of anger, throws vegetables or [...]

1 Comment 27 February 2012

SXSW is fast approaching and everyone is talkin’ about their plans. I haven’t RSVP’d for a single party. This time of year equally attracts me and repels me. The prospects of running into old friends, seeing informative films, meeting interesting folks and watching Dave Foley piss on a wall make me giddy. The knowing that [...]

I mentioned awhile back that my boyfriend is a  filmmaker. In the summer of 2011, we wrote a screenplay called Loves Her Gun and shot it in September. We’re working on the edits now. It’s really weird watching footage of something you created. It’s like giving birth…for hours and hours. It’s both bowel-emptying exciting and [...]

Austin-based company Software Advice sent me an AWESOME sketch breakdown they did of the different archetypes one would see at SXSW. They’re pretty spot-on.

The Best Part of SXSW Is…

3 Comments 17 March 2011

My friend from college, Joe Nicolosi, is a super talented filmmaker. Everyone in Austin knows it, but now it looks like the world does too! Joe is the filmmaker behind the SXSW “film bumpers” you see before a screening. Truth be told, Joe’s various bumpers are better than many of the movies this year. This [...]
