TIFF Report: Andrew harasses Ted Raimi
So the strategy has always been to look at the best bets e-mail each night and plan out the following day. Wake up at the butt crack of dawn and buy tickets at the box office. A sound strategy that has worked, with one exception. Today was no different except I had time to kill so I grabbed some breakfast and went underground in the ManuLife building to await my viewing of Low Life. When who should I see at the table next to me but Ted Raimi. Ted FREAKING Raimi!!!
Given my love for movies I have never really come across anyone that I know from movies that I love. Oddly enough hanging with the guys from Shaun of the Dead was really cool but I wasn't freaking out like a little girl like I was this morning. I was trembling. I forced myself to sit down and compose myself before I even began to think about talking to him. I mean c'mon!!! This is Ted Raimi!!! The half of 'The Raimi' that you actually see on the screen! And despite my gibberish and linguistic nonsense Ted was super nice and friendly asking me all the questions and trying to make sense of my blurtings. A couple hand shakes later and the world returned to normal we moved on with our lives.
