Sometimes to find the perfect image, all you gotta do is Google
It’s that time of year again (if you live in Toronto) – TIFF or, for out-of-towners, the Toronto International Film Festival. My Twitter feed is jammed with celebrity sightings and party bragging. Working at the back-end of events like these can be exhausting. Luckily, I’m only volunteering my time over the next six days to hang with media on a few red carpets. Sure for about 15 minutes it’s mayhem but mostly it’s shooting the shit with photographers and joking with entertainment show hosts. While I don’t always (nevah) buy into the hype, I do love films and it’s exciting that I live in a city where some of the best movies make their debut.
But stars aside, I’ll always and forever raise my glass to the people who put in all the work. So if you’re schmoozing at a premiere or guzzling bubbly at an after party, don’t forget to be especially nice to everyone with a headset, camera, microphone or volunteer t-shirt.
Because if you’re not, Ryan Gosling’s probably going to step in and straighten you out. (See you Saturday boo)
