September 27th, 2018.
Yesterday, prior to photographing the “small but it counts towards my goal of 500” premiere for “Black 47” I already managed to pick up my wristband for today’s “A Star Is Born” premiere, which despite its massive size and huge expected crowds I managed to get wristband #2 (!!!) for in the pen of my choice (and I had friends with #1 and #3). That’s pretty unprecedented.
And before it had even started I’d ditched my spot to stand next to a friend with wristband #99 because, indeed, he’d managed to find a great spot in the pen that the 98 people in front of him (including me) had all missed. And…? He was completely right.
Here’s how it went down.
So… that was large, and yet also very enjoyable. And it brings to a close a 16 day period that featured 11 events (and I’m counting four separate days of London Fashion week as a single event) - King of Thieves, The Room, Maniac, London Fashion Week, A Simple Favour, Gloves Off, The Intent 2, The Prop Store Auction, The Best Fifa Awards, Black 47 yesterday…. and this premiere today. Whew!
My Archive of Premieres certainly has had fun. And I look forward to getting some sleep on the weekend before hopefully a choice of three events next week followed by London Film Festival the week after that.
Until next time!
