Here’s some fun stuff we shot at this year’s SXSW. We sent Sarah around to see what fun stuff you could do for free and without a badge. Enter the First Order, or rather, Project-X1.de and Stargarrison.com who showed up with this awesome full size Tie Fighter from The Force Awakens. She hung out with them for awhile and talked about it. Watch our video and then check out our YouTube channel and watch the rest of our great SXSW 2016 footage!
Written by Chris Cox
Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
