No Casino Gettysburg Ad
A battle to preserve history: keeping the gaming out of Gettysburg.
What will be YOUR legacy?
Mindfile was contacted by Jeff Griffith Creative to produce a series of persuasive videos for No Casino Gettysburg, a non-profit organization aiming to prevent a proposed casino less than a half-mile from the historic site of the Battle of Gettysburg. We shot interviews of many noteworthy figures dedicated to the cause, from documentary filmmaker Ken Burns to actor Matthew Broderick to President Eisenhower’s granddaughter Susan Eisenhower. In addition to interviews, stunning visuals of the historic site added to the emphasized importance of the movement. On April 14th, 2011, the Pennsylvania Gaming Board rejected the proposal to build the casino.
