Tomb Raider Suite - Composer Buffet Reception Meeting

Post by OverRaider » 29 Apr 2018 06:44

Just have returned from Composer Buffet Reception couple of hours ago, was a nice time spent with Michael and his group and we also unexpectedly met Roli in there and of course seeing Nathan himself, there was a projection of pictures and gameplay medley from TR1 TR2 and TR3 with orchestral version soundtracks, food and drinks for free, prize draw (some from our group were lucky enough to win or was it everyone except me? :D ) and so on...

I was quite lost in this park not knowing which way to go...

Image

Then I managed to reach one of buildings of the Hatfield House

Image

But that wasn`t the correct one so I kept searching and somehow managed to find the correct one

Image

And here`s the entrance, Winston himself welcoming all with champagne

Image

And then Michael introduced me to his wife Regina and his Group (from left to right two friends of Michael, Michael, Regina and Buck)

Image

Michael and me

Image

Me and Roli

Image

Me and "Lara Croft" ... wonder why she is aiming her gun at me :|

Image

And here`s from left to right two friends of Roli, Michael, Roli and me

Image

And some pics of projection, food, interior and musicians...

Image

Image

Image

Image

I somehow did not manage to take a photo with Nathan, sadly... but nevermind, life goes on :D

What else to say? Well, we were thinking to lock up Winston in freezer but it would have been just too cliché, so...

Thanks for the nice "Foto Story", Marek! It was great to meet you at this fantastic event!

And it was indeed not so easy to grab Nathan for a foto, but close to midnight Tigggi (on the right) and I succeeded and got one with the master himself and Meagan Marie the Square Enix Community Manager:

Image

And here you can see a very touching moment, when Tracey, who is the overall Project Manager of the Tomb Raider Suite effort, hands Nathan a heritage plaque - very typical British thing and kind of funny that it will now find its place at Nathan's home in Czech Republic.

Image

With "Lara" aka Alison Carroll it was easier to get a Foto, as they did a longer session where you could queue up. If you do not know her, she was the official Lara Croft Model from 2008 to 2010, ie during the TR Underworld days.

Image

Roy has also posted a video from the event to give you an idea of the atmosphere - this was the World Premier of listening to the Abbey Road recorded Tomb Raider Suite!

And last but not least - a fun pic from Roy's home, as he kindly hosted us again for these special Tomb Raider days in London... :D

Image

You can see Tigggi and Marsi at the bottom (members of the German TR Meeting community - and Tigggi was actually lucky to win an invite to the Buffet Reception), then Jana, webmistress of tombraidergirl.de and Jan, webmaster of wikiraider on the left, Roy (registered here as buckcw) in the back and myself and my wife Regina (aka Gandalf from laraslevelbase.org) on the right.

The actual release of the TombRaider Suite Album is now dated for August 1... I for one, can't wait...!!

And only 48 hours before the Composer Buffet, we enjoyed another great Tomb Raider Party in London, so check out a few Pictures in this thread:

Nice. I am envious. Isn't the CD going to be released this month? Seems so long ago that I paid for it..........

You did not pay for the CD - you invested money into a project which when completed will reward you for you commitment with a CD. ;) Subtle difference, I know, but still... :D

And Nathan is still sending Kickstarter updates if you care to read them - official release date of the Album is now August 1 - and I would expect that it will easily take 6-8 weeks before the packages can go out after that. They really run the whole thing with a team of 3 and - being the artist - Nathan is apparently not the one contributing a lot to the admin work around it - that is more Tracey's job... :p
