2 8 S X S W O R L D / M A Y 2 0 1 4 T hroughout our journey we were constantly meeting interesting and passionate people from all walks of creative fields. We got to hang out with some of our favourite record labels (Future Classic and HW&W), watch some amazing talks (Alejandro Jodorowsky on his film The Dance of Reality), not to mention hitting a few parties. The fondest memory (apart from watching our work being screened, of course) was a random one. Kiran Mandla, one of the executive pro- ducers and partners of our production company (Compulsory), and I were slightly drunk as we went from a SXSW screening to a gathering of some sort. Suddenly, we saw a group of people crowding around a bus, and for a split second we turned around to see what the hell is going on. Shocked, we saw a woman on the street walking ever-so-slowly in a zombie-like manner. It was one of those awkward situations where you don't know if you should involve yourself in someone's potential accident or be very British (cause we are) and move along. We tried to help the woman only to realise this was only a pub- licity stunt for a documentary at the festival! To top it off she handed us a flyer?!?! In a nutshell, any place that takes projects THAT seriously, will always have a place in our hearts. - Chris Tomazou (Director: My Panda Shall Fly & Adventure Elephant : "Opening Brace" music video) J A S O N B O L L E N B A C H E R E R R I C H P E T E R S E N M I C H A E L L O C C I S A N O / G E T T Y I M A G E S D U S T I N F I N K E L S T E I N / G E T T Y I M A G E S H U T T O N S U PA N C I C / G E T T Y I M A G E S 4 5 2 1 A M A N D A G I A N N I N Y 6 I N T E R A C T I V E , F I L M A N D M U S I C T U E S D AY, M A R C H 1 1 T H — W E D N E S D AY, M A R C H 1 2 T H 3
