The Best Work You May Never See: Riverwind Casino's "Musical Journey"
Deploying her signature style of animation using colored salt manipulated on a black canvas by a condor feather, director Aleksandra Korejwo of Acme Filmworks, Hollywood, shows a female singer give way to an image of a guitar player, the heart and spade suits of playing cars, and a procession of musicians on their instruments, ranging from a drummer to a saxophonist to a guitarist. Each spot in the campaign mixes varied animated elements depicting icons of the gaming/casino world--music, playing cards, and in some cases, poker chips, slot machines and cocktails. This array of uniquely animated colored sand images then conclude with the appearance of a logo for the Riverwind Casino, accompanied by the slogan, "Be Swept Away,"
