November 26th, 2018.
I only got home at midnight tonight (whereas for yesterdays Ralph Breaks The Internet premiere yesterday I was in BED by 10pm)… so much of this journal is/was ‘the best I can do by 1am for a 5am alarm I’m committing to get up for. And there’s also another premiere the next day AND one the day after that.
But you don’t care about that. Like everyone, you care about the DC Cinematic Universe’s latest addition: Aquaman (?). Here’s how it went down:
So… that was that. At 6:45pm I headed off to the Northern Line to get to the Jubilee Line and zip across to North Greenwich and the O2 for the Ennio Moriccone concert…. where they let me take in my 40Megapixel Huawei phone, my full-frame 36Megapixel Pentax…. but confiscated my fisheye lens 12Megapixel GOPRO because (and I quote) “it’s a recording device”. Complete idiots, and meanwhile two sweet old ladies near me had their mobile phone on a railing mounted on a mini TRIPOD covered by a programme and they recorded the whole concert and nobody even noticed… (well…. I noticed)
But the point is : I did a World Premiere and a Final London Concert conducted by a 90 year old film scoring legend ON THE SAME NIGHT.
