Exodus: Gods and Kings
On December 7th, Twentieth Century Fox hosted the New York premiere of Exodus: Gods and Kings at the Brooklyn Museum of Art. From acclaimed director Ridley Scott comes the story of one man’s daring courage to take on the might of an empire. Ridley brings new life to the story of the defiant leader Moses (Christian Bale) as he rises up against the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton), setting 600,000 slaves on a monumental journey of escape from Egypt and its terrifying cycle of deadly plagues.
THE FIRM, formerly known as Samantha Sackler Productions, took on quite the challenge in transforming the Brooklyn Museum into three amazing spaces. Guests entered through the front of the museum where they had a first hand look at the red carpet. Here Samantha Sackler and her team created a 96 foot curved red carpet, highlighting the existing architecture and beauty of the building. For the first time ever, a combination of lucite panels and movie posters created a sleek, refreshing backdrop for camera crews. From here guests were escorted into the Cantor Pavilion where the team renovated the existing theater equipment into a state of the art theater, this included a new larger screen from RealD as well as a high definition sound system.
In the last installment of the Brooklyn Museum takeover, THE FIRM transformed the Beaux-Arts Court into an amazingly gorgeous after party. Inspired by the film we brought in Designer8*’s Paloma Collection which features a masculine charcoal grey linen fabric with a soft curved design. Using gold as an accent color we paired each vignette with the gold Gatsby Coffee Table and gold accented pillows. As part of a truly special and unique opportunity we were able to display the original costumes and artifacts seen in the movie. We created four viewing area for the props that showcased pottery, housewares, vanity, statues, tablets and scrolls. The various costumes were displayed around the room for guests to admire. As part of an added bonus guests were encouraged to take a tour through the Museum’s Egyptian Gallery.
