This was my first SXSW...and boy, did it live up to the hype.  Despite not really having a great idea of how everything worked, I managed to get myself to several music showcases(including West of the Fest, of course).  The last night of the fest, I had a chance to attand the red carpet event for the premiere of the new Ryan Reynolds-Jake Gyllenhaal film "Life".

Here's how it works...we get there around 5:30 to check in.  After going through security, we are led to our spot on the red carpet(which is actually black and not red, fun fact).  Around 6:30, the film's producers and writers start working their way down the carpet for pictures and interviews, followed by the actors.  Behind the press, there is a lounge area for people with film badges.  As you can imagine, it's a very festive scene...everyone is in a good mood and it truly feels like you're in Hollywood for a bit.  

Around 7:30, you see Ryan Reynolds and Jake Gyllenhaal make their red carpet appearance.  They start to work their way down and eventually hang out with Mix 94.7 for a couple of minutes!  They talked about how it was cool to have the film debut in Austin(Ryan mentioning that he liked the change from a typical Hollywood debut) and Jake mentioned that it was a real honor to be chosen to close SXSW this year.  I didn't get to ask them about breakfast tacos.  Maybe next year!
