What can we say about South by Southwest 2013? For some it was the chance to learn about new technology..

Being able to get up close and personal with the Black Magic Cinema Camera was worth the entire trip to me. -Tanner Stewart

For others it was the chance to meet famous people..

Student celebrity sightings.

I met basketball superstar Shaquille O’Neil, Director/Musician Rob Zombie, Actress Brie Larson, and Film Critic/Corresponder for Extra, Ben Lyons. I can’t imagine a better way to spend my spring break! -Samantha Durkan

For others an opportunity to visit the set of live productions..

I learned so much about the inner workings of the film industry and discovered things I could never of found anywhere else but SXSW. It was a great experience. -Jacob Henson

And for others just a chance to be part of something huge..

Students in the big crowds in SXSW.

We worked really hard raising money and going above and beyond to make this trip happen. We didn’t know if it was possible but we did it and will take away so much from this trip. -Chad Wilson

For me, it was an opportunity to see a few of my students who’ve worked hard all year–among many others who’ve worked just as hard, to jump head-long into this industry event. This conference provided so many learning opportunities and challenged us all to work harder toward those landing students those dream jobs. Special thanks to our SGA and RiverRocks Chattanooga for their donations that made this possible!
