Stephen Lance threw an extravagant Gatsby-inspired house party capturing all of the grandeur of the roaring twenties for the Australian launch of betting agency Ladbrokes.
With every room filled by big band music, flowing champagne, and the Charleston danced in every corner, Stephen worked closely with top choreographer Anthony Ikin to capture all of the movement and performances in a single shot.
Cutting Edge then took the reins* bringing the Ladbrokes character to life compositing in an actual horses head onto the shoulders of the man of the hour.
Here are some of the on set pictures of the fun. You can watch the commercial here – http://taxifilm.tv/archives/5317
As part of our partnership with TEDxBrisbane, Taxi created a an interactive video installation with director Tony Prescott with the aim to spark some debate around if film has become a ‘need it now’ quick fix to our emotional needs. Does it lead to fulfilment or does it make us apathetic to going out and experiencing these emotions first hand?.
Check out a short video of the installation here
Taxi’s little brother, Traffic Film & Video motion graphics created the entire suite of titles for TEDxBrisbane 2013 including the segment opener and each of the 26 speaker titles. Motion Graphics, design and editing wunderkind, Gwyn Dixon worked his designs in with footage from Israel Rivera’s opening TEDxBrisbane film.
