Screening #1
After a year and a half of filming, traveling, editing, and stressing, the World Premiere of Helvetica happened last night at SXSW in Austin. A sellout crowd of 450 packed into the Austin Convention Center for the film and a post-screening Q&A with David Carson and I (below). The audience was great, and although the evening is still sort of a blur for me, from the amount of laughs and applause we got it seemed like everyone really enjoyed the film.

David, Just watched your interview on Hillman Curtis website.
Really put me back on track. So much has been lost in the design industry. The love and respect for such an amazing trade. I have a difficult time because I am not constintly surrounding myself by other designers. But that is not the answer after watching your video. Its who I am and the life I live.
Anyways I just wanted to let you know that I appreciate what you had to say.
Keep up the good work. Cheers, Ben
