Hang onto your (red, white, and blue) hats balloon fans and HBO loyalists! April 22, 2012 marks the season premier of HBO’s new series, “VEEP”, starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Ballroom Balloons was selected by HBO’s local production company to provide balloon decor for the show. The taping took place in a Baltimore, MD hotel in early December, 2011.
Due to complications facing television and movie crews who wish to have the iconic Washington, DC landscape in their films, Baltimore has become a favorite alternative. It just so happens that many Baltimore buildings favor Washington’s architectural style. The state of Maryland makes Baltimore all the more alluring by offering a basket of financial and logistical perks. So, is Baltimore the new Washington? Don’t forget to tune in to HBO on April 22 and make your own decision……..And, don’t forget to vote on November 6.
For the shoot, Ballroom Balloons constructed fourteen ten-foot tall, full garland, balloon columns. The columns featured three-foot jumbo foil star-shaped top balloons and patriotic ribbon frills. Hopefully, we will get a glimpse of our balloons on the opening episode. It seems likely that they were used for a presidential inauguration scene.
