A Photographer/Producer/Ecommerce/Web Designer/Business Owner’s SXSW Interactive Schedule

casey-neistat_make-it-count-nike_clip_1

SXSW Interactive is the event where the who’s-who of the creative world is all in one place. Photographers, producers, Ecommerce guru’s, web/graphic designers, entrepreneurs, directors, etc all gather together to learn, network and party like the rock stars we will photograph over the upcoming weekend.  As a small business owner with a day job I have almost all those titles so SXSW is the place to be. This will be my fourth year in a row and I have learned that planning helps a ton but nothing prepares you for madness. Things get extremely crazy, the nights get later and later and new parties & events pop up every few seconds. Below is my initial schedule for the Interactive portion of the SXSW festival. A great website/tool to help you keep up with the SXSW hipster crowd – http://austin2014.sched.org – I use it every year as well as SXSW’s app.

(photo above is from one of Casey Neistat’s movies… I’m looking forward to his keynote!)
