Yesterday was yet another crazy day, but it worked out really well. Went to press conferences for The Four Feathers and The Wild Thornberrys Movie, so I now have photos of Heath Ledger, Kate Hudson, Lacy Chabert, and Tim Curry. Plus, I went off to the red carpet arrivals for The Four Feathers and got some nice shots of Heath and Kate walking down the carpet.
I had the interview with Bruce Campbell this morning and all I can say is… wow. He’s such a great guy to interview and it’s almost impossible to ask something that he can’t answer. I got video, photos and even some time with the director of Bubba Ho-Tep, Don Coscarelli, who was also great to chat with.
Just a quick update from the Toronto International Film Festival!
To start off my festival experience, I went to see Nick Nolte in The Good Thief–a film that easily swept me off my feet and totally surprised me. I am so surprised by how much I loved this film. I’m working on the review still, but I hope to have it up tomorrow morning before I run out to the first films of the morning. Unfortunately, I got some bad news tonight.
After a long, long wait, the Festival has finally started! Yes, it’s every media and movie nut’s favorite time of the year–schmooze time! That time of the year when everyone with a pass looks important, when die hard fans clutch desperately at their pens and pads of paper as they dodge security trying to get autographs, and photographers climb lamp-posts trying to get that ideal shot for the cover of Big Shot Magazine. It’s the time of year when a whole industry dines daily on popcorn and other expensive delectables from the greasy movie theatre concession stands, and it’s also that time when it’s not uncommon seeing someone carrying around a pillow as they run from theatre to theatre trying to catch as many shows as possible.
