At the risk of sounding like we’re tooting our own horn, we’d like to announce that we ┬ájust landed some gold of our own, a Gold Addy award from the American Advertising Federation in the category of digitally enhanced photography, to be exact.

ARIA New Year Invite 2014.francisx2.com

Our job was to bring the burlesque-style circus themed collateral to life. The project was for Aria Hotel and Casino’s New Years Eve campaign, which was helmed by the illustrious Michael Dunn of the MGM Resorts (wink, wink). The model was photographed in the studio over white seamless and composited in an array of scenes including an alluring Ringmaster, beguiling Lion┬áTiger tamer and a mildly harrowing ring of fire performance. No actual big cats were harmed, that we know of, at the actual photo shoot, but much pain was inflicted in the wrist during the retouching process.
