So I went to, hands down, THE coolest event last night…to mark the release of Dexter Season 4 on DVD and Blu-Ray.
It all began with a twitter feed, #DexterLive – classic Dexter quotes were popping up, and all I knew was that it was leading up to ‘something special’ – I tweeted and retweeted…some friends saw my tweeting and followed…and then, a couple of days before, we were told to be at The Old Abattoirs at 7pm on Thursday 25th.
This was the perfect place to hold the event! So eerie…
The first sign that you’re on the right track is “Dexter Live” painted on the pavement…a member of the Miami Police are at the door to check who I am, and then I’m escorted in, by torchlight, with another cop. I go past crime scene tape, down the stairs and am handed a mask before being warned that it was a mess down there.
I’m then faced with a body…blood…all under a plastic covering!
Evidence has been marked. I put on some shoe covers and join the forensics team, looking at the evidence and the body…
I moved into another room, where screens were set up to show us some “visual evidence” – a short film summed up the previous happenings in Dexter, and was followed by the season 4 finale…
The episode ended with a scream in the room – someone had been murdered, and that room became a crime scene, with the team taping off an area.
It was so exciting!
After more movie time, we were given a copy of season 4 on DVD…- a great surprise!
It felt great to really be a part of the evening – the agency, OnlineFire who worked with Paramount to organise it did a stellar job!
