A strong working relationship grew stronger recently when the sound pros at audioEngine|west teamed up with longtime partners E.B. Lane Advertising to produce a :60 spot for the Arizona Lottery. Mixer Bob Giammarco and producer Shannon Blake handled audio post, while Composer Jason Camiolo produced an original score that perfectly complements the beautiful footage shot by True Story Films Director Cary Truelick.
Wonderful Ranch follows the story of one lucky man who waxes in wonderment over his expansive estate, his stable of horses, and his 10-gallon hat as these images appear onscreen and Camiolo's soothing tune plays in the background. In the end, these prizes are the bounty from a winning Arizona Lottery ticket, which the narrator assures us, "You can't win if you don't play."
The spot follows a gold ADDY award-winning effort between audioEngine|west and E.B. Lane in February for The Muscular Dystrophy Association's Make a Muscle, Make a Difference campaign. "It's hard to articulate how important our relationship with E.B. Lane is to our company," noted Giammarco. "We literally struck gold with them last time we teamed up, and the confidence that grows from our ongoing history just seems to propel us from one successful project to another. I'm sure you'll be seeing more from this partnership in the very near future."
"It's easy to produce TV commercials when I have great creative to work with," noted E.B. Lane Producer Carolyn Peterson. "Both Gary Serviss and Nick Zink came up with some fantastic spots for our Arizona Lottery account. With the music composition skills that Jason possesses and the expert sound design work from Bob, we all knew we would get great sound from audioEngine|west. We have collaborated with audioEngine on quite a few spots over the past few years and were not surprised but very pleased and impressed with how Bob and Jason enhanced the spots."
Wonderful Ranch, which is airing in :30 and :60 editions, debuted over Memorial Day Weekend.
