3 Animated Shorts to Consider

Friday, February 14th, 2014

If you are a Shorts person, like I am, you do not need me to convince you to go. Even though I have been watching Shorts seriously for possibly a decade, I am a child of Hanna-Barbera, so it still boggles my mind what animation can do and be. If you are new to watching Animated Shorts-keep your mind open and you won’t be disappointed.

THE Construction of ANSTALT3000

Director: Helmut Munz

While I am not sure of ANSTALT3000’s true purpose, I am very charmed by the creatures who are trying to explain it to me.


Director Alan Holly

I hope this is what Death is like-benevolent, tolerant, strong.

A new year, and just sixty four days to go…

Thursday, January 2nd, 2014

Welcome to 2014, and now the holidays are over it’s time for The Baby team to start counting down towards March and South by Southwest. Interactive and Film kick everything off on Friday March 7th (which is just 64 days away), and the Music showcases on the following Tuesday.

We’re going to spend the nine weeks running up to the start of the festivities (can you think of a better description?), looking at our highlights from each of the major strands of the event. The big names are going to get a mention, but we want to find the smaller names and put them on your radar.

We’ll also help you out with your preparations and give you ideas each week of things to do before you head to Austin, as well as updating our ‘Tips to Survive SXSW’, and we’ll be with you every day of SXSW if you need some advice on filling your diary.

The Faces of SXSW Baby

Monday, February 6th, 2012

The Baby! has always been about the community that builds up around SXSW every year, from January 2000 when the community was started by Paul BauschMeg HourihanEvan Williams, right up the current crew today helping you through your time in Austin this year.

And you might have noticed in the new blog design (that looks almost like the old blog design) the faces that are lurking in the top corner. Right now some of those faces belong to The Baby! team, and others are friends of the site. And we’d like to extend that opportunity to you, our readers.

Just drop an email to friends@sxswbaby.com with your name, a website you’d like us to link to (if any), and your picture.
