The last two weeks I have been running Backlot Film Camp in Spanish Fork, UT. Every year we do a big red carpet premier for the kids to show off the videos they have created and feel like real movie stars. I will share some of the cheaper options we’ve done for you DIY’ers, but this year we were able to buy an actual backdrop, and rented out a theater. As you will see below, it was awesome!!
The second year we tried to up our game and so we glued/taped a bunch of papers together. It looked much better than the spray painted version but unless you’re doing a small version I wouldn’t really suggest it because it took FOREVER and we couldn’t store it after. We had to just throw it away because it fell apart. 🙁
Red Carpet Ideas:
The first and second year we used a fabric carpet from Zurchers. It was cheap and actually looks really good in the photos, but it was really small for the price. It wasn’t durable enough to save for the future but it worked great for the evening.
This year we used a red plastic table cloth that was 100 ft long. It doesn’t look quite as good in the pictures but it was cheaper and longer so it worked much better for our purposes.
I also burn a DVD for each kid and so at the premier I have them sign their autographs on the back so that they get the full “famous” experience. They think it’s pretty cool.
Good luck with your red carpet extravaganza!!
