04 May Texas Crew Covers the SXSW Red Carpet for E! News

Ryan Reynolds and Jake Gyllenhaal at SXSW

SXSW is fun. People, food, music, film, art — what’s not to like?

E! News had Roger Woodruff and me on location at the Zach Theater for the world premiere of the new SciFi/Thriller, Life.

We met up with our producer before making our way to the red carpet. Once on the carpet we got together with E! correspondent, Sibley Scoles and hunkered down. Roggg was on the Sony F-800 XDCAM giving him great coverage as the cast and crew of Life started strolling through. Standing behind Roggg I was able to monitor the handheld mic and boom as interviewees came and went. We talked with the writers, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick who also collaborated on Deadpool and Zombieland. Then we got to chat with the two main stars, Ryan Reynolds and Jake Gyllenhaal. Sibley, Ryan and Jake shared in some fun banter and just like that, they were on their way.

This was a great red carpet experience. A world premiere is a fun environment with celebrities and fans abound.
