This is just your standard ad campaign for a sports themed, nightclubish steakhouse in Las Vegas. Heraea had a great set-up for watching sports, so the video wall had to be a key feature in the campaign. Using the forced perspective from a wide angle lens made the background stand out from the girls who were shot with a 60mm.
No one would ever notice, but I actually made custom sports tickers for each of the screens from 4 different fictional Heraea operated channels. Without those tickers, the stock photos on the screens wouldn’t look like action shots from live games. They’d look like stock photos.
