It might be a peculiarly Australian trait to commemorate losses and defeats as much as celebrate victories. It is for this reason that I feel obliged to present this journal to a partial failure.
The problem for me at this one was having a divided focus. I had already photographed all three actors in the movie 'Stoker' already (Nicole Kidman at "Nine" and "Australia"; Mia Wasikowska albeit poorly at "Alice in Wonderland" and Matthew Goode at "Watchmen"), and for this reason, my priority was not photographic : it was autographic. Meaning, I really wanted to get something signed.
This desire, however, in turn resulted in a series of compromises in photography, and as a consequence, this one suffered … and sadly I didn’t get the autograph either. The lesson isn’t so much “never try” as it is probably “wear the consequences”. Fair enough. Here’s how it went down:
So.... I guess it goes in the "Archive of movie premieres" not so much as a failure, but as something that happened. Good chance to use the 8mm in action, though.
Until next time!
