August 16th, 2017.
Back in 2010, at my first ever Baftas, I failed to photograph director Kathryn Bigelow, who would win both a BAFTA and Oscar for Best Picture and Best Director for 'The Hurt Locker'. It's been seven long years, but today I finally had a chance to take that elusive photo of her, at the premiere for 'Detroit'.
Here's how it went down:
Elsewhere, a short tube ride later...
So... that was that. My first premiere since last week ('An Inconvenient Sequel'), and my first non-documentary movie premiere for over three weeks ('Valerian and the city of a thousand planets'). Next up... I think Frightfest is late next week, and there are some premieres rumoured.
But for now it's a much-needed new entry into the 'Archive of Movie premieres'. Btw, if you ever want to know when I post one of these journals, feel free to follow me on Facebook at premieresdotco, or on twitter at Berndt2_photo (I'm clearly not good at personal branding...)
Until next time!
