This year during South By Southwest Interactive, Paste and Sennheiser teamed up to present a spread of great interviews each day from the Blackheart on Rainey Street.
From actors to game developers to musicians and more, each interview was an engaging encounter that highlighted the amount of creative energy present in Austin that week. Sennheiser stepped up the experience with their wireless headphones, allowing those in attendance to listen in on the interviews even as they milled around on the patio in the Texas sunshine.
One of the films that caught a lot of buzz at this year’s SXSW was Short Term 12. The film, which stars Brie Larson as a supervisor at a foster care facility, came home from the festival with the SXSW Grand Jury Award as well as the Audience Award for 2013. Fans of HBO’s The Newsroom will also recognize Larson’s on-screen love interest in the film, played by John Gallagher, Jr. Paste film editor Michael Dunaway talked with the two actors during SXSW to talk about the film as well as Larson’s other endeavors.
