This is a teaser from the hours of footage I filmed at SXSW interactive 2009 in Austin, Texas. I asked questions about why people were at the conference, any stories they had about the conference and what they are passionate about. This teaser showcases some story snippets. Music is by the Austin, TX based band Spoon, song is "Was It You?" off of the Gimme Fiction album.

Filmed with the Canon 5D Mark II movie mode with a Canon 17-40mm L lens., all footage is untouched, audio needs work as well. This is a work in progress. Audio is from the MKE-400 shotgun mic into the camera(mostly on full, high). The Auto Gain Control was horrible at some times (you might notice). Until that is taken off the camera controls, one would be better off recording sound from another device and sync.

The footage was fed into mpeg streamclip and converted to the 720p Apple Intermediate Codec to edit in Final Cut Express. FCE output was to h.264 quicktime with a 3000 bitrate lock and AAC audio 128kbit at 1280x720 HD for vimeo upload.
