Burden Political Ad


Animation: Television Commercial

David Byrd Consulting


The second of a pair of Maryland political commercials I worked on was for a ballot initiative on legalizing gambling.


For this project I did a bunch of concept and temp design work which isn't that interesting to talk about. But a quick little finished piece was also animated and that's what this is, here.


The angle was the concept of tax payers already carrying too much of a financial burden, so let's bring in some gambling revenue to help out. Having parents that live in Las Vegas, I understood completely.


It's a bit crude, as it was done in it's entirety in a single day, but is still visually interesting and embraces my love of mid-century animation!
