HONK! TX Festival of Marching Bands

This is a video I shot and edited from the HONK! TX Festival of Community Marching Bands held in Austin, TX from March 11th through the 13th. Over 20 marching bands from all over North America took to the streets of Austin for 3 days creating a wall of sound heard for miles! On the final day of the festival, all the bands marched a couple of miles from City Hall in downtown Austin down Caesar Chavez towards Pan Am park on the east side where the final performances were held. For more information on HONK! or for more info on the participating bands visit the HONK! website.

South By Southwest 2011

Another South by Southwest has come and gone, leaving Austin hungover from a week-long music, film and interactive binge. As always, I spent the week catching free tunes, free food, and most importantly free booze :) It was a great time and now its only 350 more days until the madness begins again! Here are some of my photo highlights from this year's festivities:

SXSW: Light After Dark

The music portion of South by Southwest kicked off last night at the Seaholm Power Plant with Light After Dark, an electronic-visual explosion put on by Vimeo and Nikon featuring Diplo and Eclectic Method. I think my camera's going to get put to work a lot this week!

Minor Mishap Marching Band @ The Swan Dive

This is a video I shot and edited of Minor Mishap Marching Band performing after Datri Bean's "Ruby" CD release show at The Swan Dive in Austin, Texas. If you've never seen MMMB perform, I highly recommend checking out on of their performances. You never know where you'll run into this collective wall of sound... it just might be in the aisles of your local grocer!

Lone Star Studios Presents Mr. Gnome

This is a video I edited together from a live performance by Mr. Gnome at Lone Star Studios in San Antonio, TX on December 4, 2010. The evening was curated by Sean FitzGibbons who produced the event and did the stage design. Special thanks to Matt Daly for filming the performance, Edwin Jered Stephens for the audio recording and mixing, and everyone else who helped orchestrate the night.
