Harrah’s “See it up close”

Filming at Harrah's Resort, Southern California what a blast! A strong collaboration between I.D.E.A. creatives Ryan Berman and Joe Nafziger, Harrah’s Ryan Thompson and Jeffrey Lamont Brown. With 9 setups in one day, we were lucky to have the incredible Nicole Miller, Amy Lorenzen and Harrah’s very own Patty Olvera making everything flow as smooth as the lazy river.

The concept: “See it up close” opens with extreme closeups of guests enjoying the key amenities of the property. Massage, juicy steak, beautiful hotel room, lazy river and a win in the casino. We cover a lot of ground in 30 seconds with this spot. And oh yeah, we shot some cool slow-mo helicopter footage of the new hotel tower for the end card!

Look out for this television commercial; it’s enough to make you say, “DAMN!”


Tallgrass Pictures came out with not 1...but 8 awards

'Tis the season of award events. The Oscars, The Golden Globes, and for us… The San Diego ADDY awards. Walking the walk in both photography and broadcast, Tallgrass Pictures came out of the event with eight awards - one gold, four silvers and three bronzes.    Earning silver we had : Showreel  Snow Adventures Marie Antoinette And earning bronze we had: Legendary Napa Valley Salton Sea   Our collaboration with I.D.E.A. on the Villages of La Costa earned us a Silver and Bronze.   Although we are simply bursting to share which piece won gold, our lips have to remain sealed. Who knew production work was such top secret business?! It feels good to have our hard work recognized.
