WOODMO Begins 2018 With Chalamet, Kaluuya, etc!

Post by WOODMO » January 11th, 2018, 1:22 pm

2018 is here and I am on the board celebrity wise. The weather has been downright frigid here in New York, but we had a thawing out which resulted in a downright balmy night in the 30s. I opted to forgo the beach and instead chase some celebrities, since the :praytogods: were restless!!

The event I did was packed with A-listers, including Angelina Jolie who did photos right in front of my but I was unable to get one being second row on the rail. The guy in front of me is a friend in the hobby and he offered to let me in front whenever I needed, but the rail was too tight to breathe let alone swap in and out.

The main reason I went though was for smaller names who were more obtainable, namely Dave Franco, Timothee Chalamet, Armie Hammer and Daniel Kaluuya. As the night would unfold, I would wind up getting 3 of the 4, so I consider 2018 off to a successful start.

Now I mentioned it was crowded, but boy oh boy was it ever crowded. I kept in the second row thinking maybe I'd get to the front, but finally I realized this was not going to happen so I left my spot and went into the center of the pen figuring moving around would be more useful. It turned out I was right, as I was able to get my top want Timothee Chalamet in the corner of the pen. I was yelling for him and a :master: I am friends with also joined in and he came right over. I opted for my phone on many of these because it was too tight and cold to use the camera effectively with the layers and limited arm mobility.

At this point a bunch of the crowd left and :snear: and I spotted the Franco brothers. James I have already, and he wasn't doing a thing anyhow with his scandal so fresh, but Dave Franco was nice enough to do a few quick ones as he walked into the venue. My number 2 want of the evening.

After this there was some down time, but luckily we had a few cool hunters around to bullshit with. A bit of time passes, but finally we see some life and grab the Get Out folks, Daniel Kaluuya and LilRel Howery. I opted to use my camera for Daniel, but I guess with the cold I didn't massage the shutter button right and it focused poorly. Clearly I should've used the phone, but the photo is okay to me, I'll live with it just fine. Allison Williams did a handful as well but I was unlucky and she dashed off before doing mine.

After this I concluded with Patty Jenkins, Director of Wonder Woman. A super cool lady who took care of everybody just about.

At this point we got blanked by Steven Spielberg, Armie Hammer apparently went out the other door, and I went home with a pretty nice start to my 2018.

Great time hanging in that mess. That type of blur is unfortunately a trademark of that Canon PnS line. I have many like it. It's because the Max ISO, focal length and flash coverage stink on them.
