This happens to be one of the most different/difficult events that we have ever covered. It seems to be somewhat unorganize from the get go. And my staffs yell at me for no going to AX in the morning instead ... I am like, dube, it is Ernia Mano. There is a press checkin but we clearly just saw some fans that goes with the flow and enter the room with us ... After waiting for 1 hour from 10am to 11am, we are only allow to shoot photos for the red carpet event and the press conference. But during the mini concert, the fans can shoot photos and not the press :( During the red carpet event, there is an official film maker? that hold up a super bright yellow light projecting from the top right hand corner, so 2/3 of the people including the one standing in the front can only produce pics that had hard shadows all over Erina and the Club to the Max logo in the back. Interesting enough, a person who has makeup as a ghost come out with Erina during the red carpet and the ghost is not even in the movie ... so all it does is to kill the photo op with Erina :( After the red carpet, we have a press conference. It is on the stage, so all the press members are watching the guest 45 degrees upward. It is just kind of strange ... but then, Erina is so cute, most of the us are happy.
The movie preview is great however there is 40 min of standing around after the movie waiting for someone to get us into a room for a party. During the party, all the press (including the one who pretended to be one) just sit around. Yes, there is no announcement on what the party is, why we are having a party, or anything else. We kind of just looking at each other. Eventually, we are served a few really small slides of pizza at 3pm or so. Remember everyone starts at 10am without any food. It is clear the small pizza slides from the microwave is not enough, so something else is put down on one of the tables. Again, no announcment about even the food is here. And we find out ... wow, it is Taco bell! They are serving Taco Bell in a first class party room ... at the time, most of the press move on.
Anyway, most people is just so glad to see Ernia Mano. So, hope you enjoy what we can come up with :)
Club MAX also hosted the Maid Cafe event. So, there is a lot of maids around the area. We are glad to see them since there is a 30 min wait just to get start in the morning.
People waited here for another 30 min :)
Erina is coming!
The bright yellow light comes up in the top right corner. And man, you can see the hard shadows all over.
Cute cute Erina chan and the shadow of the ghost that is not even in the moive ...
