Good afternoon from EPHQ everyone! As I’m sure you saw on my Facebook & Twitter updates on Friday night, I had the honour of working with Mr. Gene Franklin Smith, the Creative Director at the newly refurbished Malibu Playhouse as their event photographer for the SOLD OUT Red Carpet opening night of; “The Dream Of The Burning Boy” which Gene & Rick D. Wasserman produced.
This is the West Coast Premier directed by Edward Edwards, is getting 5-Star Rave Reviews and on top of that – had an industry who’s who guest list of Jerry Lacy, Julia Duffy, Jane Seymour, Roma Downey, and a totally MEGA cast including Matthias Chrans, Jeff Hayenga, Joslyn Kramer, Jayne McLendon, Zach Palmer, Tyler Ritter and of course – the incredible celebrity actress & designer: Ms. Melissa Kite.
Melissa I’m sure you remember I had the honour of photographing & filming in Los Angeles recently on my Canon DSLR, a Nokia 808 Pureview mobile phone AND my Google Glass with the musical track by one of my all time favourite artists: Moby (LINK).
Plus I had the great opportunity of working with Gene & Melissa on the award winning movie: “Skyfell (And I Can’t Get Up)” for The Toscars hosted by Brits in LA. Melissa was nominated for “Best Whactress” as “B.M.”, Gene was nominated for “Best Whactor” as “James Blond” and I had the honour of being the Still Photographer & a had a walk-on cameo as well!
Well, after photographing their event on Friday that had a standing ovation which erupted before the closing music of the performance – I just have to share some of my favourite photographs with you.
