B.Y.C Miami Beach

Scenic Production

The Halo Group is the proud production partner to Backyard Cinema, London's favourite pop-up cinema series. Each season we create a new theme for the organisers. In the summer of 2017 we created a tongue in cheek, retro inspired Miami Beach set build using a range of scenic production techniques.

Each time we create a new theme for BYC, we consider the same areas - scenic production and set dressing in the main cinema auditorium / bar area and a themed immersive walkway tunnel linking the two spaces. On entering, this adds a fun twist as cinema goers make their way to their seats, gradually getting into the spirt of the theme.

The Brief

The brief for this series took inspiration from 80s Miami in all its kitsch-cool cheesy glory. Think Miami Vice, Don Johnson, tropical colours, neon detail, pastel beach huts & art deco architecture and you get the picture. Using a selection of creative production, scenic production, set dressing and general styling techniques our award-winning team set about transforming the space into a laid back playground for all to enjoy.


The Solution

To achieve the end result our production team started by creating the beach, using 20 tonnes of imported sand. Once the ground work was laid, the space was dressed with tropical florals and foliage, neon painted signage, vivid coloured backdrops, individually sourced props including a reclaimed boat, deckchairs, inflatables and of course an iconic Miami feature - a life guard hut! The Halo Group's creative direction really helped bring the space to life in a vibrant and fun design. We love working for BYC. Never taking themselves too seriously, they never fail to deliver a great experience to all their loyal followers.
