The Ovation Hollywood Arch wrapped for the Minions moview premier event

Movie Premiere Event

"Minions: The Rise of Gru"

Services: Face Painting, Balloon Twisting, Arm Tattoos, Caricatures, Crafts, Hair Salon


Illumination's Minions took over Hollywood to celebrate the release of "Minions: The Rise of Gru". The two day movie premier celebration had multiple events including a hand-and-foot ceremony at the legendary TCL Chinese Theatre, a pop-up "Despicable Discs" record store, a minions skate experience, and of course Hollywood became "Minionwood" for the entire weekend. Fans of all ages enjoyed Minion photo opportunities, face painting, balloon twisting, caricatures, crafts and more...all under the famous Ovation Hollywood Arch.

A large-scale public events needs ample interactive entertainment to keep guests excited and engaged. If the activities list is too brief, people get bored waiting in lines, children get frustrated, and parents will cut the trip short. Universal Pictures' marketing and event management team knew they needed lots of hands-on, kid-friendly entertainment and were looking for a solution to find, book, manage, and pay a variety of artists and entertainer. They contacted Artistic L.A.
