Showcase Caesars' Las Vegas properties free WiFi.
Due January 26th, 2017 - Create a short, sweet, and cheeky Video that highlights the iconic amenities at Caesars properties in Las Vegas and drives awareness for the leisure traveler to enjoy free WiFi available across their numerous properties.
The goal of this project is to create an entertaining and engaging 30-second Video – with a 15-second cutdown, five still images, and a 2D endcard/bumper - for the leisure traveler looking to indulge in the amazing amenities that Caesars Entertainment properties have to offer, while weaving in the messaging that guests can enjoy free access to WiFi, powered by Cox business, across all properties during their stay in Las Vegas. While showcasing the beautiful imagery of the various Caesars Entertainment locations, they do NOT want the standard, run of the mill hotel sizzle reel you’ve already seen a thousand times. Your Videos should tell an interesting, unique, and original narrative. Have fun with this one!
