Who does one of the world’s premier entertainment companies come to for
bubble advice? Casey Carle of course. As bubble consultant Mr. Carle

How Do You Get to Sesame Street? By Blowing Bubbles Oh So Sweet!
With Casey's help Elmo's goal of filling Sesame Street with soap bubbles was reached, bringing cheers of triumph from muppet monsters and giddy humans alike.
Casey's most important contribution was coaching the child actor who portrays Charlie, Violet Tinnirello, in specific techniques for creating giant bubbles for her monster friends Rosita and Rosie while keeping the undulating blobs in frame!
The properties department relied on his expertise for supplying super solutions and to advise them on big bubble making contraptions as well as to directly assist the on-screen human talent toward forming bubbles from everyday objects in a safe and effective manner. He was also called on to supply silent but effective, professional bubble machines for generating a "street" full of gorgeous spherical rainbows.
Inspiring Toy Development|
Called on by the Director of Engineering at Fisher-Price, Casey presented his unique skills to their team
of engineers and toy designers in order to expand their
understanding of soap bubbles from a scientific perspective. The
result: an overwhelming appreciation for, and
reinforcement of the importance of imagination and "outside the box"
thinking that come with developing unique and engaging forms of
entertainment, whether it be live performance or toy development.
"This was just the kind of 'brain juice' we need to keep our
creativity alive and kicking! What a great show he put on -- funny,
smart, clever, innovative and at the same time educational and truly
applicable for toy design and development!
It was one of the best 'moments of inspiration' I've seen here at
FP and well worth every minute to observe his talents and expertise
-- and it was just plain fun! Priceless!"
- Eve, Fisher-Price Designer
Pepsi: It's all about the bubbles
Pepsi called on Casey Carle for the filming of their amusement park commercial shot at Coney Island, NY. Their vision was to provide multiple large bubbles high in the air to choreographed music and on cue during an active sidewalk scene.
Not only a consultant on this shoot, Casey can be seen in the commercial in the role of amusement park bubble vendor/performer. Scheduled for national broadcast 2006-2007.
"Thanks so much for being part of our Pepsi shoot. Your Bubble expertise was well worth (the investment)"

Don't Burst The Bubble|
When Bailey's Irish Cream (Parent company "Diageo of North America") needed soap bubbles to perform on cue for a commercial about drinking responsibly ("Don't Burst The Bubble") who did they call? Casey Carle. Casey devised one of a kind techniques and custom mixes of lighter-than-air gases for guiding a soap bubble in and above club dancers, over flaming candles, into and out of a ceiling fan, through a narrow doorway and into and out of the hand of a passenger in a taxi cab. Techniques that impressed 2-time Oscar winning Cinematographer Janusz
Kaminski and Director Kathryn Bigelow (who a few years later earned
Academy Awards for Best Director and Best Picture for "The Hurt Locker".
How's about them apples, er, bubbles!)
Annual International Congress
Known globally for their mission to combine beauty products with social consciousness, Aveda was celebrating a 30 Year Anniversary during their annual International Congress (conference). Attended by thousands of professionals in the field of people beautification. A high tech (lasers, big screens, flying people) theatrical runway fashion show. Casey was hired by Antionette Beender, famous hair stylist from England, to entrap two of her "futuristic" models inside a giant tube of soap film - complete with spherical bubble helmets and giving off attitude to rival the gravitational pull of Mars. The space faring fems shattered the the encasing bubble wall to emerge in a beam of light and to stare unblinkingly at the odd life forms in the audience.
Air Quality and Environmental Management PSA
Public Service Announcement for the Clark
County Department of Air Quality and Environmental Management produced by Abe Froman Productions, Las Vegas NV, Casey consulted via telephone conference regarding a commercial in which the "hero" is a bubble traveling through shots promoting decisions that effect the quality of our air. Casey's input saved the production company time and effort, which we all know in the end is a cost savings.
Bubbling with excitement about the Samsung NX-1|
Samsung requested and received giant, free floating soap bubbles in an unusual environment; an image that could be digitally melded with other fantastically colorful imagery shot that day. All part of creating a commercial to promote their most recent, cutting edge digital camera. The skateboard park, located at Chelsea Pier 62 on Manhattan's west side, hugs the
mighty Hudson River.
Meaning: nothing to stop the southerly winds from racing full throttle into the skate park,
spinning vortexes of warm, sticky air among the launch ramps, banks, and bowls of a pro
skate park. (90 degrees and a bright, hot, totally unimpeded sun to boot!) [more...]
Consultant to Award Winning Book
Innovative Kid of Norwalk, CT and publishers of "BubbleOlogy: A Hands-On
Science Kit" approached Casey in 2002 to assist in the final development
of this one-of-a-kind book/kit. They knew Casey could make the text they
already had more exciting for kids. They harnessed not only his ability to
engage children and teach them the art and fun of bubbling but received an
added bonus with Casey's confident understanding of the science of
bubbles, soap film and water. In the end 50% of the text in this 2004
Teachers' Choice Award winning book is based on the information Casey
shared. That same year, "BubbleOlogy" was recognized by Southern Living
Magazine as a top 10 "Smart Gift" for children.
"We previewed his performance and knew we must bring Casey onboard
to assist in adding fun and engaging activities plus insider secrets to
our book. A pleasure to work with, Casey's extensive input helped us
garner a 'Teacher's Choice Award' from Learning Magazine. Together we've
created countless budding bubble-ologists nationwide."
Shari Kaufman, President, Innovative Kids, Norwalk, CT
Consultant to the House the Mouse Built.
In 2000 when Disney's Family Fun Magazine page needed an expert bubbler to
check the facts and figures on their "Objects of Fun" page they contacted
Casey Carle who helped them design some hands-on, backyard bubble fun for
kids. Demonstrating once again that Casey is not adverse to releasing a
trade secret or two to help kids of all ages succeed at bubbling.
Bubble Consulting hits the airwaves!
In the late 1990s, CBC Radio, Canada's national public radio broadcaster,
received an email to their science desk asking why soap bubbles are always
round no matter what shape wand is used to blow them. The producer
contacted Casey Carle for an on-air interview with the host of the
program. In an enlightening conversation regarding bubble geometry and
physics, Casey shared expert advise and insights to satisfy the curious
listener's effervescent inquiry.
Ladies & gentlemen, children of all ages! In the center ring...|
Waaaaaay back in the late 1980s Casey was a professional clown with the
Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey Circus. There he explored a talent for
developing top-notch forms of comedic entertainment. After less than a
year of learning the ropes, Casey created and co-created comedic routines , four of which were chosen to be part of Ringling's next 2-year national tour; a rare achievement for a novice circus performer. One of these routines was a one-of-a-kind soap bubble act that earned him a "center ring"
performance slot and a place in history as the first circus entertainer in the world ever to encase people in a bubble.
Consulting and Expertise|
The added bonus is that if Casey doesn't have the perfect answer he knows where to get it! Casey Carle is connected both professionally and personally to an international bunch of soap bubble enthusiasts. Add this to a 20 year career of live-show bubbling, a library of books, tons of online resources and you'll need to look far and wide for a more experienced soap bubble consultant.
But it is more than knowledge and experience that makes Casey a top choice. He also brings a professional yet fun work ethic that is appreciated by the talent, directors, technicians and cinematographers he has had the pleasure to work along side of.
