November 6th, 2014.
It's not every day that I have a chance to photograph a premiere where I literally know not one of the actors or director going in, for a movie I'd never heard about. And though it was cold and threatening to rain, and then I got home and learned that Getty and Wireimage weren't at this premiere and even the mighty IMDB.COM doesn't show the actor or director's image....
.... I'm willing to look the fool and post this journal anyway.
Apologies in advance : I'm way, out of my depth here. Even my cameras are Japanese, and that's not really a good thing either.
Here's how it went down.
***** PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF I'VE GOTTEN ANYTHING WRONG *****
And one year later... I've learned nothing but did it again for the 2015 London Korean Film Festival premiere of 'Ode To My Father' / 'Gukjesijang'
But.. this one was a premiere I was mightily underqualified to be at. I mean.... I've watched Korean Movies. Their sense of Vengeance is amazing. 'The Host' was cool. 'The Good The Bad And The Weird' was... well... more 'weird' than 'good' or 'bad'. 'Stoker' had a Korean director and that was great and I was at the premiere. 'Snowpiercer' - the English Language one - was problematic but certainly stylish...
... ah, who am I kidding. They'll never let me into Korea anyway. My passport has FAR too many Japanese stamps on it. Still... it's another for the archive of movie premieres : I've done over 250!
Until next time!
