The Warner Bros. Blade Runner Final Cut After Party

After entering the rear of the Bradbury Building and signing in Bryan and I were somehow separated. Progressing into the darkened lobby I really had no inkling as to what to expect. Climbing the wide stairs to the second floor it took my eyes a few moments to adjust to the dark.

The upper hallways had been turned into the Bradbury of Blade Runner. Fog machines spewed thick fog, revolving spotlights from the upper floors cut the fog revealing the enormous bar and tall bar tables against the walls. On the other side was a Dim Sum buffet. Each bar table contained a square glass container with a candle, an image of a geisha showing through the side.

With no Bryan to be found, I darted about photographing everything in sight. I was on sensory overload trying to take in every detail.

I carried with me a small “Final Cut” poster. In between photographing the building and people in attendance, I would have cast and crew members sign the poster.

I am sure everyone attending had an enjoyable time. I was able to talk to people I had not seen in years. I would like to thank Ronnee Sass and her team at Warner Home Video Publicity and Charles de Lauzirika, and Paul Prischman (a man of his word) at Lauzirika Motion Picture Company for a truly unforgettable evening.
