14 Aug 2013 - The 'We're the Millers' Premiere

August 14th, 2013.

Due to various factors both within and outside of my control, I have missed the last FOUR consecutive London premieres (at least two of which I regret). However, today was the premiere for "We're The Millers" and my instinct was : let's make it five in a row.

For one thing, I only had one spare battery which already 1000 images taken on it. For another, I've already got a good shot of Jennifer Aniston, I got it back in 2011 at the "Horrible Bosses" premiere. For a third : I'd left my spare camera and MAIN LENS at home anyway. For a fourth - the queue in Leicester Square at the time I arrived all but guaranteed I'd be third or fourth row... or worse. And for a fifth.... meh.

That's when I realised.... That's Precisely Why I Had To Go.

So I left the queue, went back to the office, dumped my backpack, and went for a drink. Here's how it went down.

The Odeon West End is pretty small, and the premieres it hosts are typically likewise small. But today, crowds were huge (crowd not shown in picture above!). Still,  I had a bad lens, a half-used battery, a wallet, and a plan involving the bar to the right, and what looked to be an unattended second storey window to photograph out of..

I feel my morose mood of late might actually improve if I also had a giant sign explaining what was going on. It would be nothing near this polite, though.

So the issue was....I couldn't get into the premiere. It was already TOO PACKED. What to do? As stated above... go for a strategic Drink...

This is the view a pint of Aspall's and a small plate of fries will buy you at this premiere, as photographed on a fisheye lens. The majority of the crowd is a giant heaving mass in front of me, but a column at least four deep, plus a row of media across from them, stretches from the right part of this picture all the way to the road a further thirty meters or so away.

The secondary lens for this premiere has this field of view. It's not enough for portraiture but might work for environmental shots. I'm about halfway through my pint of cider by this stage. It's quite nice. The fries are okay, too, if you're wondering. And my environment is air-conditioned. I repeat... AIR CONDITIONED

Who's looking stupid now, huh? And I'm not even drunk! Yet!

My main lens for today will be my Tamron 90mm. It's kind of sluggish in focussing speed when batteries are low. And when contrast is low. And when I'm shooting through glass. And also possibly when I might be slightly drunk (maybe), as I'm three quarters through my pint and the premiere still hasn't started.

Your host for this event, which is now running about 25mins late, will be Radio1 DJ Edith Bowman. And the white flower on the left is an agapanthus, I believe. They also come in a sort of lavender blue colour. In other news, in order to retain my spot I've felt obliged to order a second pint of Aspall's. I see no way that this could negatively impact my mood and enthusiasm for the premiere. Like... no way.

I'm not sure why they've dedicated a cameraman and multiple speakers and microphones to the agapanthus section of the crowd, but there you have it. (shrugs)

Random Girl Band arrives early and poses for the Paparazzi. In the absence of other information, and buoyed by the alcohol in my system, I've decided to definitively declare them to be early 1990s pop/rock trio Wilson Philips (they had a couple of US #1s - they were totally legitimate in their day). I say this even though there appear to be four of them and I'm very certain Wilson Phillips only had three members.

Young actor Will Poulter used to be a tiny kid way back when he was in the Narnia films, which genuinely feels like it was maybe only three or four years ago. He now looks to be over six foot tall and contemplating a future in basketball. I last photographed him at  the "Wild Bill premiere"

I'm still not sure about the genesis of this lady's alleged fame, but I know her name is Kimberley because one of my friends is wholly smitten by her. I myself am immune to her charms and her body shape and her loose fitting clothing... by virtue of the fact of being fortified by what's now approaching one and a half pints of cider which isn't enough to make me forget there's one full storey and about thirty meters and a pane of glass between us. Also (obviously) there's the unbreakable code of honour among men (or rather, friends). And finally and probably most importantly there's this girl I like that I've probably mentioned before that I still don't have even the remotest chance with I don't think, but latent effects of my vain hope provide some immunity against most females. Scarlett Johansson and Charlize Theron are both welcome to test my hypothesis, but I think it's sound. But ... I'm all for testing it.

Jennifer Aniston approaches from the far right, and the crowd suddenly remembers that their mobile phones have cameras on them.

Other than strong views on the photos you keep on your phone, the director of "We're The Millers" has the awesome triple-barrel name of Rawson Marshall Thurber, but I'm holding all mirth for now because IMDB has informed me he also directed the Vince Vaughn / Ben Stiller movie "Dodgeball", which I actually really liked. Simple underdog story done well.

Actor Jason Sudeikis has been watching a few too many old zombie movies. Like Jennifer Aniston I last photographed him at  the premiere for "Horrible Bosses"

I have genuine affection for directors who, realising their movie is having a Leicester Square premiere, reach for their phone to commemorate the moment. Richard Curtis did it  ("The Boat that Rocked") . James Mangold did it ( The Wolverine ). Michael Bay.... not so much.

Jennifer Aniston has finished interviews, it's started raining, and I've pretty much finished my second pint of Aspall's. In possibly unrelated news, Jennifer Aniston appears to be shaking a bit - I don't seem to be able to properly focus on her. Or perhaps maybe YOUR screen is unstable. You should get that looked at. My camera technique is perfectly fine, thanks. *hic*

"I'm not posing unless you can name at least three other non-Friends things I've been in besides Horrible Bosses". Farq. Well, "Along Came Polly" comes to mind. Other than that, I'm drawing a blank. Oh, wait.  "Marley and Me" because I was at that premiere . Couldn't tell you a third though.

"They're blinding me with photons : help me!!"  Jason Sudeikis seems eager. I'm a bit too far away to help, sadly. Also, with a camera in one hand and a cider in the other I'd be of limited use. I've given away my table in order to fully concentrate on my drinking which means I have nowhere to safely lay my drink. Which is in a tall glass. I'm trying to be a responsible adult.

With a light blue carpet and glossy yellow stage, my camera's white balance is doing things my center of balance is also currently guilty of.

Jennifer Aniston :  "Me? Horrible Bosses, Along Came Polly, Marley and Me, Picture Perfect, Bruce Almighty......... ummmm..... ahhh.....  awwww... crap. Honestly much of the rest is a blur of interchangeable rom-coms with nary a historical epic or action film among them. They sure paid well, though"

Like me, the crowd is finding frustration in Jennifer Aniston being physically blocked by DJ Edith Bowman. I have about 4 more units of alcohol in me than the majority of the crowd, but unlike them my camera has interchangeable lenses and I can switch between them with a practiced confidence that has nothing to do with alcohol intake and everything to do with skill and the fact that ambient noise in the pub would make the gnashing and splintering sounds of misaligned contacts difficult to hear. I'll let you know how I did next premiere when I try to use those lenses.

"Goodbye -- and remember, box sets of Friends are available on DVD, Bluray, and iTunes... maybe even old copies of VHS. I get a percentage cut on all sales... so get yours today!!"  Also, remember to watch this movie. I suppose.

So... I guess I'm back in the game, even if it took getting drunk in a pub simultaneously for me to do it (!), and for the first time in two or three weeks I have a new journal for my "Archive of Movie Premieres"

Until next time! *hic*

21 Jul 2013 - 'The Lone Ranger' Premiere

July 21st, 2013.

Sunday premieres are not my favourite thing, more so when I still have to edit the tail end of 4000 photos from last weekend's awesome epic wish.co.uk Zombie Weekend (did I mention I went on a Zombie Wekend last weekend? It was awesomely epic).

But I wasn't going to miss this one... even though I got there too late to get one of the 600 orange wristbands they started handing out from about 8am. So I got to Leicester Square at about 3pm and I assumed I'd be shooting from outside the event....

... but not so. Here's how it went down.

I found a spot with an indirect view to the giant corporate logo, with the interview stage to its left set to be partially blocked by a boom mike and camera, and ten billion mobile phones... and did I mention that outside the Hans Zimmer score I'm not really attracted to this movie? Still, there's the possibility of getting a decent photo of Johnny Depp at a premiere. My failure to photograph him properly now runs to not  "one"  and not " two " premieres and not even three (The Rum Diaries which I missed) but  "four"  premieres (because it still lacked a *great* shot)

So apparently I needn't have worried, because Johnny Depp appears to be in the pen opposite me. That's handy (?!).

I'd spent mere hours standing next to some noisily excitable Turkish guys who were surely far too young and far too MALE to truly be plausible fans of Johnny Depp, and who were folding and tearing and rolling large The Lone Ranger posters into smaller pieces. And while I pondered "why?", a man on a horse arrived.

Armie Hammer most notably played both of the Winklevoss twins in David Fincher's "The Social Network". And the lens on the camera of the man trying to photograph him appears to be so large as to require a gymbal to wield effectively.

This is director Gore Verbinski, who also directed the first three Pirates of the Caribbean films (so don't blame him for the fourth one). He also directed the animated Rango, which I thought was excellent.

My spot is situated across the road from the (blurry) pen in front of me and Armie and Johnnie have taken to the far stage. My zoom lens is long and excellent, but the rare hot English weather might create actual heat haze in front of the stage.

Did I say heat haze? Also possible it's the estrogen levels of hundreds of female fans of Johnny Depp. (I hear the Russians once experimented with a bomb based on that principle)

"I just want to respond to opinions that the last two Pirates of the Caribbean films were rubbish. I actually think that's true of the last THREE Pirates movies"  Actually given he's probably being paid the equivalent of all of Greece's GDP by Disney for playing Jack Saprrow a fifth time, he probably didn't say this.

I photographed him in the near darkness of a dark London February back at  "Confessions of a Shopaholic"  in 2009. I have no evidence as to whether he refers to himself in the third person, incidentally.

These two apparently composed a remix version of the classic Lone Ranger theme. I think their band is called "Future Cuts" and their genre interpretation of the theme was "Dance". (Pity - I remember when all those interpretations used to be rap..).

As promised, Johnny Depp is returning to our end of the premiere to sign autographs. Or, in this case, possibly take requests for not quite anonymous kidnap ransom demands.

"It sure sucks that facebook compresses these photos so much. The original looks much sharper. Try loading them on flickr and linking back to Redbubble from there" . Thanks, Johnny Depp! I might just do that. Tomorrow, though, cause it's midnight here and the number of hours til I have to wake up to go to work is already scaring me.

"I'm signing a lot of what look like contracts here. I just want you to know I don't get out of bed for less than $20million and 15% of the gross".  I think you can probably negotiate a smaller front end, but he's going to want a larger percentage...

So... that was slightly better than I'd anticipated. I'm still not quite there on getting a great photo of Johnny Depp, though. Obviously I'm putting it into the "Archive of Movie Premieres"
