HOLLYWOOD BECAME "MINIONWOOD" FOR THE ENTIRE WEEKEND!
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.

Minionwood included the outdoor courtyard under the Ovation Arch. The green was decorated with bright balloons, bubbles, kid-comfy seating...a included bright yellow booths with family entertainment provided by Artistic L.A.
Indoors, the Despicable Discs was a fully immersive 1970s pop-up store packed full of interactive entertainment all catering to the Minions theme.
When rating the quality of face painting, you look at detail and time. Our artists were able to create elaborate, theme-specific designs in a minimal amount of time...which means more happy faces!
We custom cut tattoo stencils to match the Minion-theme and selected additional "groovy" options so children had a variety of choices. Airbrushing with multiple colors adds detail and dimension that is not found in stick-on tattoos.
Children absolutely loved watching their favorite minion created right in front of them! Balloon twisting was a fabulous crowd pleaser.
There is something unique about posing as an artistic muse. Professional caricatures create a fun memento that is always a surprise.
Crafts appeal to a large age-range and allow guests to take home a personalized souvenir. As the perfect tie-in to the Minions movie, children were able to choose and decorate their own pet rock. Artistic L.A. provided event staff helped monitor and assist children with the creative process.
The Despicable Disc immersive experience included a salon for photo-ops, as well as actual hair services provided by Artistic L.A. Our artists braided and twisted hair for anyone who wanted to take a seat!
