Class Description

The world’s brightest thinkers are gathering in Austin for SXSW — and you’re invited to join the party. Uber and creativeLIVE are partnering to bring you #uberLIVE, two days of candid conversations with creative visionaries — all broadcast live from the back of an Uber SUV. During exclusive 1:1 interviews with host Chase Jarvis, you will get unprecedented direct access to the luminaries at the forefront of every industry.

We’ll cruise through the crowded Austin streets chatting with legendary creatives and innovators — picking up randomly-selected Uber users along the way. Mixing conversation with education, social commentary, and a bit of voyeurism, UberLIVE is a two day glimpse inside the beating heart of the future.

Digging it! I'm tuning in between editing sessions here in NYC. Wish I could've been at SXSW. I pitched it hard to my company but it was short notice so they said no. What do I so when I'm told no? I figure out other ways. Heading to Austin on March 19, paying for it myself. I'll see some music, eat some breakfast tacos and take a bunch of footage with my 5D. I'll even attempt a timelapse somewhere outside Austin - thanks for the tips and inspiration JV!
