October 9th, 2013.
It's BFI London Film Festival, opening night! And good(ish) news for anybody who thinks my commentary has been a bit tame of late. Generally, when things go well and easy, I'm a pretty sweet guy. That's me in summer, when the weather is fine, the premieres are large and well-lit, and I'm getting my Vitamin D and taking photos outdoors without a flash is simple(r). But now it's October, and premieres are darker. And more crowded. And I'm more stressed.... but sadly, at this one I'm also more tired. And that means I'm too tired to be truly angry, just slightly grumpy. (Sorry about that! I'll make sure to drink more caffeine tomorrow)
Here's how it went down.
So... that was a frustrating one. My friend appears to be okay, and will be skipping tomorrow's premiere in exchange for a comfortable room with chairs where ticket holders get protected from heaving throngs. Me? I'll be back. Obviously.
And no matter how sub-par, it'll still become part of the ever-growing behemoth that intends to grow further, the "Archive of Movie Premieres"
Until next time!
