Experts say future red carpet events could look very different given our current reality with the Coronavirus. The Hollywood Reporter says:
1540 Prods., a top firm that designs, executes and produces 350 events a year (recent efforts includeGame of Thrones' final season premiere in New York, Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards afterparty, and the ESPYs post-party) shared renderings withThe Hollywood Reporter, one example seen above, that show how drastically different the landscape could look post-lockdown.
“We’ve been meeting with city officials to redesign the experience in a way that works while accommodating social distancing to make talent more comfortable, says Craig Waldman, president and chief creative officer of 1540 Prods. "It limits the number of folks that are actually walking the red carpet and gives press a better opportunity to produce what they need to produce.”
Waldman says entourages will be eliminated while medical staff could be increased to provide temperature checks should those become ubiquitous at large events. The upshot: more space, fewer guests, healthier environments. The question that remains is: when?
Crazy to think this could happen. See some of the photos below of what things could look like:
