A Black and White Afternoon at SXSW in Austin,Texas. It's a video.

SXSW ON THE STREET IN AUSTIN from Kirk Tuck on Vimeo.

After a week of shooting P.R. events and corporate video I decided to take the bus to downtown and play with a bit of video. Here's what I saw walking around the SXSW playground= Sixth Street.

I shot everything handheld with a Panasonic G6 and an Olympus 12-50mm zoom. Sorry, no image stabilization....

The originals were shot in monotone as 60fps AVCHD files. Edited in Final Cut Pro X. If you don't see the HD version logo here follow a link back to Vimeo and see it there.

Next week will be a rough one for blogging. Two days of shooting for the Bob Bullock Texas History Museum and then off to Chicago for two days of corporate video interviews. Seems like all work these days. I'm okay with that!


  1. Love Austin, Texas - totally different from any other place I've been. This is an exciting time too with SXSW going on. Really enjoyed this little slice of the Austin scene. Nice video.

  2. Great steady hand and smooth movement. Can't say much about the activity -- but at least most of the people were walking around, looking up, and talking to one another. The ratio of screen-fixateds was relatively low.

  3. That was great, Kirk! Love the funky music, too. Looks like you have to be in your 20's or 30's or else a policeman to be on the street of Austin during SXSW....

  4. I love the B&W tones, and the soundtrack!
