SxSW: The Real World
Come to find out, MTV is filming The Real World, season 16 right across the street from where we are staying. I have not seen The Real World since there first season in New York, 1992. Last night a large film crew surrounded the house and closed off the road, but nothing happened. Maybe they were just getting footage?
This years Real World sounds like a cool premise. The cast is going to follow a band during SxSW and make a documentary. Emmy-winning documentary maker Paul Stekler (a University of Texas professor) reportedly will be cracking the whip on the project. He won't confirm or deny. Nobody seems to know if they've picked out a band yet. Interesting! The Real World Austin will launch this summer.
