Starring Robert Rodriguez, Rick Perry and Dawnna Dukes

It's not every day that the press gets to hang out Troublemaker Studios, the East Austin production facility for Robert Rodriguez. But since yesterday was signing day for HB 873, the big film incentive reform bill from Rep. Dawnna Dukes, D-Austin, it was time to bust out the best schmoozing shoes.

Possibly it was being so close to the Sikorsky from Grindhouse, but the Chronicle briefly caught the film-making bug and shot some footage.
