New work for the Minnesota Zoo on the air

New work alert!
I directed this fun spot for the Minnesota Zoo in the summer of 2017. The purpose of the spot is to announce the opening of the Zoo's new Kangaroo Crossing interactive exhibit. The idea is that a crew of ragamuffin kids is grabbing that last taste of summer at the zoo.

I'm really proud of this one. I got to cast a fantastic and diverse group of kids and work with wonderful agency and client partners.
