SXSW 2008 from mikehedge on Vimeo. Oh, my, this made me smile. Mike Hedge has a fantastic video montage of his time at South by Southwest, from the road trip to Austin from California and back, and capturing all the little moments that make the fest so special from beginning to end. This little video is a great example of beautifully edited short filmmaking; there's better edits here than I've seen in many a fest film, and he does a great job of telling a story without a line of dialog or voiceover. If you were at SXSW, you'll enjoy reliving your own fest memories by watching it, and if you weren't, well ... it'll make you want to be there next year.

Well done, and thanks, Mike, for so perfectly capturing what's so great about SXSW.
