30th –  Reception for medias and sponsors

DSC_5023A few hours after my “behind the scenes” activity, I went to a reception for medias/sponsors and also 40 fans who were going to the next activity, the Sail with Sloth (Unfortunately I got no ticket for this).
This activity was from 5 to 6 pm at the Liberty Theatre.

goonies-vip-diner--2At 4.30, a big line of people was already waiting for the opening.
I was talking with my friend Vincent and suddenly came a weird music from nowhere, then a guy costumed as Sloth appeared !
It wasΒ the unipiper, a guy from Portland ! It was pretty awesome to see him !


Once inside, we could eat, drink and talk with the crew who were at the behind the scenes !
Jeff Cohen was expected to come later.

I was speaking with Randell Widner Β and Mark Marshall about my project (I plan to make a documentary about the Goonies since a long time) and then it was the time for a speech from the official people of the event.
They introduced all the crew (I felt bad, because I sat at the official table, ahaha !) and the sponsors.
The Donner’s company, the Warner Bros, Dark Horse and a few more…

By the way, Dark Horse announced that they are currently working on a Goonies book ! Like the one they did on He-Man.
I really can’t wait to see and review this book ! Probably the best Goonies related product ever made since the ’80s.

Jeff appeared with applause, he came with his mom, Elaine Β (she’s in the movie, at the end) and his niece.

It was beautiful to see Anne and Randell Widner hugging Jeff and Elaine, for the first time in 30 years !

Jeff took the mic and had a wonderful speech ! If someone recorded this, please contact me.

I met some very cool people at this event, I wish I was less jet-lagged πŸ™‚
Feel free to share this post, save the pics… enjoy !
