Hi! I’m Adam from the IMAX communications team. This week some members of the IMAX team headed to Austin, Texas for the 2013 SXSW Conference- the convergence of all things interactive, film and music.
It was an extremely interesting and busy week as the team attended several industry panels and events, met with partners and hosted IMAX’s first ever SXSW party. Not to mention consuming an enormous amount of delicious BBQ.
I will be discussing some of the key trends we observed at the conference next week, but for now I wanted to provide a recap of some of my highlights.
Mashable brought grumpy cat to Austin. Need I say more?
