'All Thrill Space'

Type:

Animation, Live Action

The chips are down, the stakes are high, the engines spring to life and press you against your seat as you’re propelled through the atmosphere and into the glittering expanse of space. For San Manuel Casino’s “All Thrill Space” campaign, we took the casino to the stars and on a journey through a sci-fi wonderland of celestial sights as we discover the future of thrill.

Process

Turning this astronomical fantasy into reality took the skill of many hands across our talented team. Starting with a live-action shoot we built a fantastical yet-believable world for our characters to explore.
