The busy Boston native is seen on HBO’s award-winning GIRLS series, one movie out now and two others coming out later this week, he’ll be at SXSW with another film and he’s in the upcoming Coen Brothers film.

At this point, I’m pretty much running off of breakfast tacos and Tito’s vodka. And whatever free chips they’re handing out. Today on the agenda was the Rachel Ray day party, Filter Showdown at Cedar Street, Hype Hotel, Rachel Ray Greenhouse, etc. Protip: There’s no time to stop and eat at festival or you’ll lose precious minutes. Always keep moving. And drinking.

Friday I played host to the 2nd annual Local Edge at SXSW unoffish day party at Doc’s (more on that in a separate post). But that wasn’t the only event on my Friday agenda. I hit up the Spin day party, the Filter Showdown at Cedar Street party, and the Windish Agency showcase. Can’t stop. Won’t stop.

This truly is my favorite time of the year. It’s like Christmas for hipsters. Hopefully you followed my hijinx on Twitter (@themark23) throughout the fest for my ridiculous observations. My Thursday at SXSW consisted of:
Directors Nathan Caswell and Jeremiah Zagar’s film Remains is an 8 minute short that is SXSW Bound in the Narrative Short Competition. I was able to chat with Jeremiah Zagar about his career and about heading back to SXSW.
An all Austin based film with Austin talent directed by a UT Longhorn = Magpie. Here is our chat with the SXSW Bound Director Russell O. Bush.
