Many people call, text and ask what is the David Bowie table at the Ritz Bar all about? Its really a very simple concept. When I began my project to film ‘David Bowie Is Around The World’ on an iPhone I borrowed many concepts originated by Andy Warhol and David Bowie. Both cutting edge forward thinkers. After all while we Instagram everything, Warhol was doing it with his Polaroid. We change filters, Warhol was doing that by coloring Marilyn Monroe. Many people take pictures of food, and Warhol did showcased Campbell Soup. Andy Warhol took his studio (the factory) and told people to drop in and he filmed them.
The Bowie table at Ritz Bar, thanks to the five star luxury hotel Ritz Carlton is just that ( the factory) across from the red carpet of the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). Drop in. You don’t need a plan, you don’t RSVP, feel in the mood, and if you have ‘NO RESPECT FOR THE STATUS QUO’ just drop in, and you will find yourself later in my film. All this made possible by my great partners, SKKY Vodka, Glenfiddich, Ravine Vineyard, and Jarrell guitars.
David Bowie, never cared or cares for who you are, what you do, or how much money you make, but if you are creative, of the same mind set then he will work with you. The Bowie table during Toronto International Film Festival is just that, come enjoy, meet people and do what Warhol did get the word out using media, in this case social media. So you are encouraged to help those helping make this all possible by Tweeting it, with #RCTIFF, #TIFF13 and #tiffbowieritz.
This is some of the fun that has been taking place at the Bowie Table, Ritz Bar, Ritz Carlton Toronto.
