A rich media ad promoting the sale of tickets to the 2014 IFC Canoe Marathon at the OKC Boathouse District. Ad was animated from a single action photo of a previous race with use of some support image pieces, such as splashing water, to give the illusion of a slow-mo, parallax video. Each moving piece (arms, paddles, splashes, foreground, and background) was separated from the source photo; touched up as necessary; imported into Flash, and then animated in object groups.
