SXSW: music, video and social change in Austin
Well, another SXSW has come and gone here in Austin, TX. We saw some great movies at the film festival and caught some music around town. Everywhere you turned there were locals and out of towners alike enjoying the spring weather and free day parties.
Every year we help out of town clients like Intuit, American Express, Rykodisc, and others capture their involvement at SXSW with Austin video production. This year we provided professional video coverage of a panel presentation discussing How Technology Fuels Social Change. Featuring Jill Iscol, Author of “Hearts on Fire: Stories of Today’s Visionaries Igniting Idealism into Action,” as well as Leila Janah of Samasource and Josh Nesbit of Medic Mobile.
The discussion was very interesting and explored how the latest technologies, such as crowdsourcing, can be used to combat global poverty.
