M1 Theatre Connect Press Conference Dress Run
Have to say I got a little trigger happy tonight, but it tonight was really quite an exciting experience. For two reasons: (a) Obviously, tomorrow will be the first press conference I ever attend, and needless to say that has a certain effect of making one feel a tad more important than one really is. (b) Velvet Underground / Zouk / Phuture look so much better when there is adequate lighting. I'm not a dark person, and I'm guessing not many of us get to see these nice clubs in a behind-the-scenes sort of way, so here we go! As usual, place your cursor over the pics to see my captions.
I really have a million things to do tonight and it's already so so late! *sigh*. In quick summary, today was really quite a day and it was nice to see first hand how the pros work. Kind of inspiring, if you ask me, to watch them listen so disciplinedly to Sean and Isis, no smart mouthing, no interrupting and always on cue, always giving 100% performances and yet being so amicable offstage. And Sheikh Haikel and Anabelle Francis have to be the sweetest, most loving couple I have ever seen. Also the friendliest, comepltely-no-airs-about-them celebs I know of. So while my role in this the event is pretty minimal, I'm, as always, thankful for every eye-opening op I get.
Now I HAVE to get back to research. I can think of another choice profanity, but for now let's just say it rhymes with "Ah Pei".
[well, the pictures aren't going to take themselves!]
