Road Trip to SXSW 2014 (with GoPro)

We bought and GoPro Hero as it felt like a lot of our videos are a touch on the shaky side when using any camera bigger than our hands. Vicki was also heading to SXSW 2014, the interactive conference in Austin, Texas (after raving about her trip last year) so we thought we would combine the two together in this video for you. We think the stop animation worked much better than the sped-up video but we’d love to hear what you think in the comments.

The South by Southwest Festival (a.k.a SXSW) is an annual music, film, and interactive conference and festival held in Austin over nine days.
