Spooky Special Features

October, the spookiest month of the year is finally here! We like to get festive here at MVS Studio, so we put together two Halloween themed green screen backdrops and moving overlays.

The first one is a prom background with a moving overlay inspired by the horror classic Carrie.

The second one is a more family friendly design with a cute graveyard background and Halloween cat.

Kaleidoscope Booth

This past week we used our fobo Photo Booth to capture custom kaleidoscope images ready for instant printing and social sharing. It’s such a fun add on that makes every photo pop! The Kaleidoscope booth is perfect for themed parties and adding custom logos for branding opportunities.

Much like an actual Kaleidoscope, the fobo Photo Booth touch screen allows guests to adjust the angles and shapes displayed. Check out the examples below!


Celebs <3 fobo

We’re gonna be honest, we’re a little starstruck! Our fobo Photo Booth got some red carpet love this past month, and seeing celebs in the booth never gets old!

With fobo’s ability to instantly text directly from the booth to guests’ phones, the photos showed up pretty quickly on social media and were also featured on People.com (check them out here!).

We were so excited to have Jennifer Anniston, Jason Bateman, Amanda Anka, Kristen Bell, and Dax Shepard in the booth!

And of course any celeb event wouldn’t be complete without the GLAM filter ;)

Feature Spotlight: Cinemagraph

For the next few months we’ll be spotlighting some fun new features available with our fobo photo booth that can create a unique party experience!

First up is the Cinemagraph! A cinemagraph is a still photo with a single moving detail - this subtle motion gives a static image a more life-like quality. This was a natural element for us to incorporate into both our single images and GIF shots, we can instantly create them in the fobo app and text them directly to your smartphone as shareable MP4s! The animation really makes the image pop, and the effect can be applied anywhere, from one small detail to the full sky. The examples below use a green screen background which allows for limitless possibilities.

We think you’ll agree that the feature is truly an eye-catcher! The Cinemagraph will definitely stand out at any event and is perfect for Instagram!


We love GLAM!

Today we’re talking about our beloved classic, the GLAM filter! It’s our favorite because, let’s face it, it makes everyone look extra fantastic with its subtle airbrushing and smoothing effects. The glam filter is also instant, no face tuning apps required ;) Our fobo Photo Booth shows a live view with glam, and then you just tap to take your perfect photo in b/w or color – you choose!

Originally made famous by the Kardashians, the glam filter has become a go to for our celebrity clients. It’s also super popular for weddings, because everyone wants to look star studded on their special day. But really, any day is a special day with GLAM!

#Defiant Custom Photo Booth

MVS Studio had the pleasure of joining HBO at a screening of their upcoming documentary series The Defiant Ones at The Cinefamily theater in Hollywood!

To promote the new mini-series, we used our fobo Photo Booth to create a photo op mimicking the aesthetic of the show’s publicity posters.

Capturing the cinematic feel of the posters only took a small adjustment to our standard photo booth set up! We flipped the orientation for a portrait layout, shot towards a black background, and added digital branding to imitate the style of the poster. We loved this super simple solution that created such a dramatic effect!

Guests had a blast and even Dee Barnes and series director Allen Hughes got in the booth!


MVS Studio hit the ground running in 2017 with the world debut of our green screen 360 booth. We teamed up with New Balance and Highsnobiety to create an immersive and interactive installation for the global launch of New Balance’s 247 Luxe sneaker. We had a blast designing an activation that played into the launch’s worldwide appeal and in January we installed our 360 booths in 7 cities worldwide: Tokyo, Shanghai, Seoul, Paris, London, New York and Los Angeles.

The green screen 360 let guests select a location and transport themselves across the globe! Guests tried on the 247 Luxe sneakers, snapped a photo in the 360 booth, and then instantly received branded video files to post to Instagram, and 360 degree photos to post to Facebook. 

Facebook allows you to scroll through 360 photos to navigate every angle - check out our tech Chelsea transported to Hong Kong here!

Video files posted to Instagram animate instantly like the Los Angeles beach shot below!

Adidas X Footlocker Experience

MVS Studio teamed up with Adidas and Footlocker to create an exciting brand activation based on one of our tried and true custom set ups - the Shoe Booth!

We brought on Bednark Studio to fabricate a custom concrete turntable for the shoes. Guests were able to get custom laser printed logos by local artists on their new kicks! They'd drop them in the booth and then text the 360 GIF to themselves for instant branded social media uploads! 

These custom solutions are our passion projects and really bring the studio to life with creativity and new compelling brand activations! Do you have an event and want to have an exciting customer experience to draw people in? Bring your ideas to us and you won't be disappointed!
