MTV 2019 VMA’s

We recently had the opportunity to be a part of the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards in Newark, New Jersey. Our fire rated corn and mossy knoll were built specifically for the Video Vanguard Award recipient and legendary Hip Hop Artist, Missy Elliot and her troupe of dancers. Company owner and Art Director, Bryan A. McBrien flew up the friday prior to complete the corn installation and address safety concerns for the dancers rehearsing on the hill. As always in the world of film and television, safety is paramount and we were there to carve the stairs in the foam hill to assist talent in safely ascending and descending the hill. After carving the steps, we dressed it with a quick cure concrete and then did a full repaint of our moss treatment to blend and highlight the moss with a vibrant green. The live awards show went off without a hitch and you can even see Bryan behind the grassy strip lending a hand to stabilize the runway as dancers do their routine. We even covered the camera scissor lift platform with more of our corn to help blend in during production. Cinema Greens travels anywhere at anytime to fulfill your production, or event needs.
