We’ve dusted off our red carpet, shaken out our banners, bought our plane tickets, and are excitedly planning the details of the RVIP Lounge at SXSW2009.
This year we’ve got some tremendous sponsors and a slew of awesome events to visit–all the while singing karaoke on wheels throughout the greatest little city in Texas. We’re officially announcing our sponsors this week, and will also let you know where we’ll be stopping throughout the week and who will be visiting us in our Live HD Streaming Media Den. We’re anticipating some awesome interviews on-board, from inspiring tech panelists to accomplished filmmakers and musicians.
This will be the Best RVIPLounge SXSW2009, Ever!
The RVIP Lounge, LA Film Festival : our highest levels of rocking yet.
It began with an epic night of glory: we stole people from the VIP room at the LA Film Festival, cruised the Sunset Strip, stopped by the wrap party of Adrian Grenier’s show, “Alter Eco“, saw an amazing rock show by His Orchestra, interviewed Planet Unicorn, and went to the opening night Hollywood premiere party for “Expired”– who’s roster of guests included numerous Academy Award Winning producers (“The Godfather”, “Ali”, “Lost in Translation”, etc). Pretty much the blingy-est night ever.
Needless to say, we were completely beat-down the next day. We got up early, went to the festival, watched dogs frolick on the lawn as “Hellboy 2” premiered in front of us… and were so buckled we almost didn’t think we’d make it through sunset.
Fortunately, our close friends banded together and rallied up to hit the Sunset Strip for “one last ride”. On Hollywood Blvd, a random group of Canadian guys (who had been desperately searching for karaoke, to no avail) saw our RV and literally chased us down in the street. We picked them up and rode around together for hours in hilarious bliss as they sang at the top of their lungs, shared stories, played with our lightsaber, and were all-around AWESOME. These guys are our heroes, who truly helped us “bring it on home”.
And here’s a first video look at what a night on the RVIP Lounge entails…
A video is worth a thousand words…
This RVIP Lounge is shaping up to be a dream–we’re doing press interviews at premier after-parties and taking people to screenings in the ultimate event on wheels at the LA Film Festival.
We’re collaborating with the coolest new tech companies, introducing their wares to the filmmaker crowd, and helping the indie filmmakers spread word of their masterpieces via new technology (and the media). We won’t call it a love-in, but we will call it magic.
Helping these two communities work together is the goal, enabling each to attain their specific goals and gain exposure.
Also, on a rock and roll note, we’re stopping by several top-secret exclusive events (see Kestrin’s blog for clues!)
This weekend, we’re joining the press with brilliant creative content creators, independent films & filmmakers, and inspired technology startups to create the RVIP Media Lounge: bridging the gap bewteen entertainment and technology, June 27-29th at the LA Film Festival in Los Angeles, CA (Westwood).
