Jen Stark

x MTV Video Music Awards


August, 2015


Stark was invited to create original animations and artwork for the stage and promotional materials of the 32nd MTV Video Music Awards, hosted by Miley Cyrus. It aired live on August 30, 2015.





Promotional videos were played on billboards in Time Square and Port Authority. Stark collaborated with David Lewandowski, director and animation artist known for his bizarrely humorous meme-prone videos.



During the show, Stark’s work was featured in an animated set design shown on a massive LED screen. Stark’s design was on display for Cyrus’ dramatic entrance: the hostess sliding onstage through a rainbow wormhole.
