Pittsburgh, PA — January 24th, 2017 — Module, a startup company developing an affordable, adaptable housing solution, was selected as a finalist in the “Social and Culture” category for the ninth annual SXSW Accelerator competition. The accelerator is the marquee event of South by Southwest® (SXSW®) Conference and Festivals (March 10-19, 2017) Startup Village®, where leading startups from around the world showcase some of the most impressive new tech innovations to a panel of hand-picked judges and a live audience. Out of the more than 500 companies who applied to present at SXSW Accelerator, Module was selected out of 50 finalists in ten different categories.
When Brian Gaudio and Abe Drechsler decided to make a film about their travels through South America, they encountered one small problem.
“We had little to no experience in documentary filmmaking,” says Gaudio, a South Hills native who moved back to Pittsburgh last November after earning his architecture degree from North Carolina State University.
