Shrek Forever After
At the premiere for Shrek's final chapter.
It was a rainy night in New York City as my dad and I ran to the red—I mean GREEN!—carpet for the premiere of the new Shrek movie, Shrek Forever After.
As we walked inside the media tent, we were given special press passes and directed to our spot on the carpet. I caught my breath and started filming my video report.
It was a very hectic event, but there was also a lot of waiting around for the celebrities as they made their way down the carpet, stopping to talk to different reporters along the way.
Filming the video report was a lot of fun, but the best part was meeting the stars. This was no time for being nervous!
Before the stars of Shrek: Forever After arrived, other celebrities who came to see the movie arrived. Donald Fasion, the star of one of my favorite movies, Big Fat Liar, stopped to say hello. He was so excited that I knew and loved his movie, he gave me a hug!
The stars of Shrek began to make their way soon after. First was Cameron Diaz, the voice of Fiona. She was very nice and let me ask all of my questions. She treated me with a lot of respect and I really enjoyed talking with her. When you see her in the interview, you can see that she’s a very nice down-to-earth person.
The next big name was Eddie Murphy, the voice of Donkey. Unlike Donkey’s voice, Mr. Murphy’s real voice was so much softer and calmer. It was really exciting to talk to so many famous people in one night.
I’ll never forget my ‘green carpet’ experience and even though it’s all over I am still excited just thinking about covering the Shrek Forever After premier.
