Campaign: Meet Danai Gurira at the Endgame Premiere
Hometown: New Westminster, British Columbia
EXPERIENCE DATE: April 22, 2019
HERE’S HOW IT ALL WENT DOWN:
David got to mingle with Danai Gurira and a million other Hollywood A-listers at the invite-only premiere of Avengers: Endgame! He used this dream-come-true experience as a way to celebrate his 10th wedding anniversary with his wife (congrats!) and said that they made memories to last a lifetime. Some of the highlights?
The after-party: “Mingling with a ton of people… Walking by any random table or turning a corner and finding a who's who of Hollywood.”
Meeting Danai: “Talking a little bit about her charity, the film industry and The Walking Dead. I definitely let my inner nerd out.”
The premiere itself: “Watching the film in the same room as the film makers, producers, crew members and actors was just an incredible experience. The energy in the room was high.”
Check out the pictures!
I really enjoyed meeting Danai. I definitely let my inner nerd out.

Their goal is to create the next generation of African dramatic artists through training, mentorship and access so that no African story is left untold. Almasi Arts Alliance seeks to build the dramatic arts industry in Zimbabwe and by extension, the continent, and to allow the African artist to pursue a professional career in their land of origin. They also seek to bring the American and the African artist into collaboration, not only to help the African gain skills and exposure, but also to nurture global citizenship and the enrichment of both artistic voices.
