Crown Casino launches Busby Berkeley-styled promo

Melbourne’s Crown Casino has launched a new campaign promoting its program of events, Carnivale.

The kaleidoscopic animated piece directed by Curious Film’s Syd Garon by agency Clemenger BBDO is reminiscent of 1930’s Busby Berkeley films.

Garon teamed up with Carlos Florez, a LA-based director and animator for the 30-second spot.

Garon said: “The ’Crown Carnivale’ spot was a challenge and a joy to work on. That being said, compositing thirty separate 5K Red Epic files in one continuous take is an experience I’m in no hurry to repeat.”

Garon was last week nominated for an Emmy Award in the category Outstanding Individual Achievement in a Craft: Graphic Design & Art Direction for his work on the HBO documentary about real-life superheroes, directed by Michael Barnett simply titled Superheroes.
