Which is why we were so excited to interview Andy Garrison, Radio/TV/Film professor at University of Texas, and Austinite Juan Valadez. They co-founded a course called East Austin Stories to teach students how to tell local stories through film.

Andy and Juan had a lot to share, so we're double-dipping with videos today. Stick around for both parts to get the big picture:
