In order to make the transmedia project Chasing Bonnie & Clyde (long length feature documentary + interactive concept that embarks you on the tracks of the famous outlaws to explore the programs of rehabilitation for criminals that Texas recently created), we visited the capital of Texas four times in less than a year.
So we thought we should share our memories and our favourite spots to hang out, drink, eat and enjoy.

Transcript

  • 1. We DON’T REALLY know if Bonnie and Clyde stopped in AusChasing Bonnie & Clyde (doco + interactive) embarks you on the tracks of the famous outlaws to explore the programs of rehabilitation for criminals that Texas recently created. Told and sung by Black Yaya – leader of folk band Herman Dune that was often cheered during SXSW past editions – the project is planned for late 2014. We thought, let’s give our French frogs advices about the capital of Texas as we fall deeply in love with it. Cheers.

But we visited the place 4 times the last 10 months to create this transmedia project.
  • 2. 1/ START THE DAY IN EAST AUSTIN CENOTE Sometimes you don’t really know where you’re heading. But you can feel it: it’s gonna be alright. Our first time in Austin we slept on Willow Street, east of the IH35. Since then we always choose this right side of the city. This area is becoming the PLACE to be in Austin. Start the day as a conqueror by tasting the nicest fair trade coffees at Cenote on East Cesar Chavez Street. FIRE UP Facebook @cenoteaustin 1010 East Cesar Chavez 512 524 1311 Mon-Fri 7.30am–12am Sat 8.30am–12am Sun 8.30am–8pm
  • 3. 2/ SWIM TO HEAL YOUR PAIN BARTON SPRINGS POOL That’s the only thing we didn’t try but we expect you not miss it – when we went there temperatures were around 30 Fahrenheit degrees (-1 celsius degree). Austin has several natural pools that are almost always wet and accessible. Enjoy them to cool off and revitalize your body. Barton Springs is our favorite as this big hole of clear water is surrounded by beautiful trees. Pus the water is almost always 68 Fehrenheit degrees (20 celsius degrees). ENERGIZE 2201 Barton Springs Rd. 512 867 3080 5am – 10pm Guarded Swim: 8am-6pm Facebook @austincityparks
  • 4. 3/ Eat the best BLT in the US THE MOONSHINE Okay, it might not be the best in the US but seriously... grab a Big Red’s BLT with Apple smoked bacon and an extra of avocado for 12.95$... Quel délice ! Be prepared to wait in front of the 303 Red River St. during a while as the place is often full. Ask for a table on the front terrasse or even better in the patio at the back and enjoy the pre-meal popcorn. It’s our HQ for lunch to recharge our body-batteries. SUSTAIN Facebook @MoonshineGrill 303 Red River St. 512 236 9599  Mon-Thurs 11am-10pm  Fri-Sat 11am-11pm  Sunday brunch 9am-2pm ; dinner 5-10pm
  • 5. 4/ Texas House of Cards THE TEXAS STATE CAPITOL No Frank Underwood here but a great opportunity to take a free tour in the oldest state office building in Texas – it was constructed from 1882 to 1888. Sit in the rotunda, watch people walking by, wander around and try to meet Representatives if they’re not in session. You can even have a glimpse of what it feels like to be in the Chamber with tour, guided or not, available in Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Italian, Russian, Korean and Spanish. POWER 112 East 11th Street 512 305 8400 Mon-Sat 9am-5pm  Sun noon-5pm Facebook
  • 6. 5/ Don’t miss A SPlashing sunset THE LIZ CARPENTER FOUNTAIN Thanks to photographers websites, we found the best spots in town to shoot a sunset. We wanted this scene for our documentary and we found the Butler Park  ! Last january it was freezing but the place is really enjoyable. Colourful and tricky, the fountain must be the place to be in summer. Have a walk around and forget about your city life. GREEN Butler Park, 1000 Barton Springs Rd. 512 495 1963 Fountain hours of Operation:  Tue-Sun 8am-9.45pm (closed on mondays for maintenance from 8am to noon)
  • 7. 6/ Enjoy your Award and ROCK JUSTINe’s Don’t expect to spend a normal evening at Justine’s. Once you met Pierre, the French owner, everything is different. It’s a bit further East, far from the troubles of the city... that’s the main reaso why Pierre choose this spot: he wants people to know that anything can happen there. Cocktails, dinners but also parties. You’ll meet starlettes, vegan gurus and famous directors. That’s where the magic happen and that’s why we like it ! SURPRISE 4710 E 5th St 512 385 2900 Wed-Mon 6pm-2am Dinner until 1.30am Facebook @Justines1937
  • 8. 7/ reveal your inner devil WEST AND EAST 6TH STREET That’s what you’re craving for when you arrive in Austin. The walkable crazy musical nightlife. We did thousands of round trips on the 6th St. One of our best memory is in a club that is no longer opened. We were walking back to our place on East Cesar Chavez and were caught by the sound of guitars and drums. Unlike Ulysse we agreed to give up our bodies and souls to these melodic mermaids. It was the best band we ever listened to. LET GO
  • 9. 8/ Take two steps away from 6th street THE EASY TIGER We found it as you should find it: walk back to your place toward the IH 35 ; after Sabine St. have a look on the right side over the low wall and discover the Waller Creek ; take a right, go down the stairs on the left. Easy Tiger is a bake shop and a beer garden. You should enjoy both. Chill in the backyard near the water, enjoy a bretzel with cheese, grab a beer and play pingpong. CHILL 709 E. Sixth St. 512 614 4972 11am-2am Bake shop opens at 7am Facebook @EasyTigerATX
