(FLASHBACK) : 'The Transformers : Revenge of the Fallen' Premiere in RedCarpetMonochrome

June 15th, 2009/2019.

It was ten years ago that ‘Transformers : Revenge of the Fallen’ had its premiere - I’d taken the day off, had run a (literal) half-marathon the day before and was somewhat unprepared for how difficult this event would be to photograph. The crowds were more manic than any I’d seen - and unlike (say) The Dark Knight - which I’d photographed a year earlier, I had a spot much closer to the action this time.

Here’s how it went down, sans commentaire

So that, at the end of they day, was that. I missed the premiere of the third movie as I was on holiday in Scotland, I don’t believe there was a premiere for the fourth one, and I did end up going to the premiere of the fifth one - and even got to see the movie for free at that one.

Until later!

(FLASHBACK) : 'The Hangover (2009)' 10th Anniversary in Redcarpetmonochrome

June 10th, 2009/2019.

Can it really be ten years ago that the groundbreaking Hangover Trilogy began with its first drunk-amnesia follies? Sadly so. The original journal (with commentary) is here, and while I did miss the second film’s launch I also went to the premiere of Hangover III and its journal (with commentary) is here.

As for the first film? Best of the three, and owing to the colour (and thinness, and slinkiness) of Heather Graham’s dress, it was quite the experience to re-edit.

Mild parental advisory, then … and/but if you’re viewing it in a place of work, just tell them that if it’s in Black’n’White, then IT’S ART, MAN!

So…. that was certainly that. And it joins other Redcarpetmonochrome 10yr retrospectives like “Watchmen”, “Fast & Furious”, “Star Trek” and “Tormented”.
