My frist times....

First time shooting a wedding was fun and sweating! It's going to take some time to sort out the good pics. Hopefully I can get the permission from the newlyweds and share with you later on.

First time volunteering in SIFF was a good one too! The work was nothing at all--just picking up garbage, handing out ballots, and collecting them back. And you got a free seat to watch the movie! The King was what on the screen today. A very tragic dark story around a pastoral family. It was quit thought provoking--what does it really mean to be a Christian?

THE KING

"The King" is a controversial and provocative thriller starring international sensation Gael Garcia Bernal ("The Motorcycle Diaries", "Bad Education", "Y tu mama tambien") and screen legend William Hurt ("Kiss Of The Spider Woman", "The Big Chill").

Elvis is a handsome and charismatic 21-year-old just out of the navy who walks through the world with an effortless charm, and seems to be the very embodiment of hope and enthusiasm.

He heads to a sleepy Texas town dreaming of some kind of reconciliation with the father who abandoned him as a child, only to find that he has become a Pastor with a new family - wife Twyla and teenage children Malerie and Paul.

When Pastor David subsequently rejects Elvis once again, Elvis puts in place the ultimate test of faith; and when the very innocent Malerie finds herself succumbing to Elvis' charms, a tragedy of truly biblical proportions is unleashed.

Also starring Laura Harring ("Mulholland Drive") and newcomer Pell James, "The King" is directed by James Marsh, who co-wrote with Oscar-nominated screenwriter Milo Addica ("Birth", "Monster's Ball"), and produced by Ed Pressman whose credits range from "Badlands" through to "American Psycho".

Hauntingly filmed with a dark dreamlike intensity, "The King" was officially selected for Un Certain Regard at the 2005 Cannes Film Festival and played to acclaim at the 2005 London Film Festival.

I saw The King last night. What a film!

I signed up for SIFF volunteering too but did pick up any slots.
