Campaign Direction | Video Production/Broadcast | OTT | Photography | OOH | Radio | PR
Create a new creative campaign and further the brand direction for Sky River Casino to attract new guests and continue to appeal to current consumers as a new casino in the area.
Preliminary branding and visuals had been created previously, but need to be evolved once the casino was open to the public.
Focus on the casual and fun lifestyle aspect of Sky River Casino for all audiences.
Establish sky river casino as an option for people who value a well balanced life and life experiences.
To emotionally connect with audiences and stand out in both the gaming and dining categories.
As the first broadcast ads that were able to be filmed inside the property, we wanted to be sure and showcase as much of the casino offerings and atmosphere as we could while still featuring different lifestyles and stories.
To help Sky River Casino differentiate themselves from other local casino ads, we utilized different camera angles, transitions and POV’s to create visual interest and a sense of being in the middle of the action instead of watching it as an outsider.
