SXSW: A WORD FROM THE TEAM
You know those moments when you land in a new place, working on debatably sustainable levels of exhaustion and excitement, looking a little disheveled, and feeling like you can take on the world. This is our team at SXSW 2015.
When we heard two of our CAP members were premiering their films at the festival, our stone-cold pack of weirdoes (aka our CAP team) rallied from their respective coasts and flew to Austin to bear witness to such a momentous occasion.
Film festivals can be an interesting time for our filmmakers – a whirlwind of events, emotions, and people telling you how awesome you are. For years they pour themselves into a 90-minute story. They spend thousands of hours dissecting every frame, every cut, and then in an instant, it’s out into the world.
They are forced to wait in a brutal anticipation of the audience’s response.
This is where we come in. We have the incredible privilege of watching these filmmakers face every hurdle of their storytelling journey with grace and conviction. We try our best to support them as much as we can along the way.
So when the time comes for the rest of the world to see what we know will be mind-blowing and game changing, our role – if nothing else – is to be a friendly face in the crowd.
Brace yourself for two of the greatest films you will see this year.
