Okay, so ever since MTV announced that the next season of The Real World will be filmed in Austin, I’ve received countless emails and voicemails from people asking how SXSW will be involved. The Austin season will begin filming this month and continue through May.
People I haven’t heard from in years have contacted me because of this item that ran, quoting Real World creator/producer Jonathan Murray:
Murray also mentioned that it was important that The Real World visit Austin during the annual South by Southwest music and film festival that occurs in March.
“I’m not really sure how we’re going to be involved,” SXSW director Roland Swenson told The American-Statesman. “I know we’ll figure into it somehow.”
So, to those who are asking, that’s all I know. It really is. Are they gonna be our interns? Despite that being the most popular rumor… I’ve heard nothing to make it seem true.
But hey, I’m sure this won’t be the last we hear about this in the blog…
