    "Air Guitar" Mania

    The sticky Sunday night didn't put damper on the "Air Guitar Nation" party, which included a crazy "Air-eoke" contest on stage. Taking it all in is the film's director Alexandra Lipsitz and the two subjects (and apparently rivals) of the film, Dan Crane (aka Bjorn Turoque) and David Jung (right, aka C-Diddy).

    "Apart From That" at Alamo Drafthouse

    The folks from "Apart from That," screening at SXSW had a small but enthusiastic Q&A after an afternoon screening of their film in Austin. One enthusiastic audience member said, "this is the best film I've seen here." The film is described as about a Native American road striper, a student beautician, a Vietnamese banker, his adopted American son and an elderly exhibitionist who attempt to find their footing in a world of 'miscommunication, denial and unmet expectations." Left to right are: actor Toan Le, co-director/writer Randy Walker, co-director/writer Jennifer Shainin, actor Kyle Conyers (front), actor Michelle Sheiman and actor Tony K.

    "The Life of Reilly"

    Actor Charles Nelson Reilly was the focus of SXSW doc "The Life of Reilly," which had its world premiere at the festival. The film takes a look at Reilly's critically acclaimed stage show that he performed over 400 times recounting his life with often dark hilarity. Unfortunately, Reilly was too ill to make the premiere, but the crew from the film threw a party for him in his absence. Left to right: rock band L7's Donita Sparks who did music for the film, Bob Fagan (producer), Carrie Heckman (executive producer), Wrye Martin (producer), Barry Poltermann (co-director), Frank Anderson (co-director), John Murphy (executive producer), Jesse Trott (assoc. producer).
