Synopsis:
“Horse Head” is a 1 minute commercial featuring a man with an animated horse head. My goal is to produce an informative commercial for the tourism board highlighting some features of Baltimore. The commercial also features two friends Betty and Thomas who are having a trivia about Baltimore. Seeing that Thomas wouldn’t accept one of her answer, Betty retorts cynically “Would you believe it if you heard it from the horses mouth?” A well-dressed man wearing a horse head appears and dishes out five facts about Baltimore each time appearing in a new location within the city. Betty and Thomas follow Horse Head to every location.
