South by Southwest is a blitzkrieg of media. The minute that first Friday rolls around, Austin, Texas feels less like the capitol of The Lone Star state and more like the capitol of the world. You can’t go anywhere without running into someone or something, and that feeling starts with the film portion of the festival. Each year, the festival invites hundreds of stars to the premieres of their respective new movies and television shows, and each year, they walk up and down the red carpets that are laid across the front of every theater. While our writers are busy trying to get inside and secure a seat, our trusty photographer Heather Kaplan is right there to capture the magic before it hits the celluloid.
