Official SXSW 2012 FIlm Festival Bumpers

How Not To Be Lame At SXSW

Written & Directed by Lauren Wolkstein & Clay Liford

Always a much-anticipated part of the festival, the 30-second shorts, or bumpers, that play prior to each film can set the tone for an entire festival. They can build excitement, mood, and become talking points in their own right.

Panel Discussion

What is it like to be a filmmaker with this kind of pressure? Join 4 of this year's SXSW bumper filmmakers as they talk about the challenges of such a short space of time, how they come up with ideas and execute them and what it feels like to have their work be showcased as an always engaging and exciting opening act to SXSW Film.
