22 Oct - The BFI LFF 'Chloe' premiere

October 22nd, 2009.

Mere hours after a largely mixed photographic performance at the Dead Man Running Premiere I got a front(ish) row standing position at a second premiere, that for the movie "Chloe".

The "Chloe" Premiere. Also known as 'the premiere 50 Cent wasn't at' (admittedly, once the other premiere petered out, more people wandered by and joined this guy)

The photographers from the Dead Man Running premiere basically packed up their gear and crossed Leicester Square en masse and found places to sit down and upload their pictures while their 'press pen' was constructed

One of the Paparazzi says something to one of the other paparazzi. Possibly a jibe about then being a Pentax shooter, .. I wasn't really listening. But it was a moment

Ivan Reitman. True to the staggering amount of  skill I bring to my movie premiere journals (cough), I actually thought he was the director and the other guy was the producer. Anyway, Ivan Reitman has (among other things) been a director, and a very accomplished one : he directed such films as Ghostbusters, Ghostbusters II, and Kindergarten Cop.

And this is "The Other Guy" - he's the director of "Chloe", Atom Egoyer. An awesome name, if nothing else!

And here's both of them... just to be sure.

Actress Amanda Seyfried has been in such films as Mamma Mia! (2008) and Mean Girls (2004). And this one, in which she plays "Chloe" herself.

Ah, nighttime film premiere photography. Either you turn up the grain and suffer the quality, or set a fast shutter speed and pray for paparazzi flash-assists to help you out. (I did okay on this one)

The Paps to my immediate left were screaming for Amanda Seyfried to come back and turn left just one last time, which benefitted me immensely as her eyes passed by my camera when she turned. I have to say though - with Paps these days sporting 8+ frames per second cameras (mine : 3fps) do they really need more than two or three seconds to get their shot?

Actress Julianne Moore has been nominated for no less than four Academy Awards (tm) but is sadly yet to win one. She was in the sequel to Jurassic Park, though!

Another shot of Julianne Moore. And hey, I happened to like The Lost World!

Perhaps not the best of portraits, but I maintain this shot has merit ('cause I love me some lens flares!). (Then again, at this stage it was cold, threatening to rain, and I was very hungry. So at that point a Big Mac also had considerable merit...)

So that's... what... six premieres / galas in something like five calendar days? Good times. Next week will be quieter. I think...

But for now what it means is that I have another journal to add to the expanding "Archive of Movie Premieres" too!
