Fantastic Beasts The Crimes of Grindelwald RedCarpetMonochrome

November 13th, 2018.

Just like the prior movie in the series (“fantastic beasts and where to find them”), the premiere for its sequel was big enough to justify the creation of a second journal : RedCarpetMonochrome without commentary, all in black’n’white and widescreen (the colour version with commentary is HERE)

And because the premiere had weird light reflections coming off the BLUE carpet, I kind of think these are the better photos too.

Here’s how it went down:

So… that was that. I don’t do a redcarpetmonochrome journal often - only for big events and the biggest premieres (eg. Fantastic Beasts, Star Wars The Last Jedi, Avengers Age of Ultron, Captain America Civil War… and so on).

Until next time!

BFI London Film Festival 2018 - Red Carpet Monochrome

I enjoy BFI London Film Festival a lot. I sometimes call it “My Christmas” - some 12 days of premieres in London all in one big cluster. But something went wrong this year. From the main venue(s), to the attendees, to the organisation, to the security, to the Dealers, to the bad luck, to the way I just couldn’t make the right decisions…. everything just kind of went in such a way that I went home every day feeling slightly worse then when I’d left.

But for better or worse, this was BFI LFF 2018. Maybe I’ll be able to look back on it and laugh, eventually.
