October 20th, 2016.
Even I can't believe I'm writing this, but... for the (frankly startling) SIXTEENTH -and final- consecutive day, I was able to photograph a premiere in London, and it was a big one to finish off the sequence.
And .... well... even I know the drill by now. Here's how it went down:
Quick aside : Back at athe premiere of the movie "Oblivion" I inadvertently possibly became the only person *ever* to *not* get Tom Cruise's autograph at a premiere when he was dragged into the cinema already some 15mins late to the screening and bodily dragged away by his PA. Today my spot was much better and I was standing right next to Master Autograph Hunter (and personal sensei) Mo. Would the most inevitable lightning fail to strike during the second heavy thunderstorm twice? (And also... I don't do selfies).
So... that was that. A sixteen day period of at least one premiere every day, no breaks, starting with 12 days of BFI London Film Festival ending last Sunday, then four premieres in four days from Monday night on. Tomorrow is Friday and the next premiere is... Monday. And it's for Marvel's Dr Strange, which is in no way going to be a small event.
I plan to sleep quite a bit between now and then and not care too much about things.
Until next time!
