How to Get That Hipster Chic Style

Screenwriter-director-actor Mark Duplass, 35, along with his brother, Jay, 39, is a SXSW regular. As he heads to Austin to premiere their latest film, The Do-Deca-Pentathlon, he lists his personal must-haves.

iPhone with FaceTime: My daughter won't be coming, so I'll be talking like a goddamn fool to her on FaceTime at various and sundry places that offer WiFi.

Blue Hanes medium-size hoodie: I wore it to SXSW in 2005, when The Puffy Chair played and we met the companies that eventually distributed our film. Good-luck hoodie.

Advil 200-mg gel caps: I tend to drink a lot at SXSW. My favorite beer (Shiner) is there, and I have very little self-control. These help.

Ray-Ban Wayfarer Sunglasses, baby blue, reflective lenses: Yes, they are my wife Katie Aselton's sunglasses (mine got stepped on during the last day of shooting The League), but that sun is big down there. I need something.

Boring gray Samsonite roller suitcase: It's the biggest allowable for carry-on. Needs to fit my laptop, dorky exercise gear, three days' worth of film-festival-worthy clothing (including one nice shirt, just in case) and room to bring back a stuffed animal for aforementioned daughter.
