Absolut Brooklyn Trailer with Lemon

Absolut Brooklyn featuring the rapper Lemon Andersen and directed by Spike Lee is awesome celebration of everything that makes Brooklyn so special.

Following a successful partnership on the music video for Michael Jackson's This Is It, Director Spike Lee once again entrusted Smoke & Mirrors to handle post and VFX for his recent collaboration with ABSOLUT® BROOKLYN.

"We are thrilled to once again work with such an accomplished director," noted Smoke & Mirrors CCO Sean Broughton.

The film is a tribute to Brooklyn beautifully narrated by spoken word poet/actor Lemon Andersen. The legendary director blends live-action footage of the performer strolling the borough with still images of Brooklyn's soaring bridges, endless parks, busy boardwalks, and diverse people, culture and neighborhoods.

Tasked with bringing these images to life were Lead Flame Artist Nic Seresin and Flame Artist Sam Caine. Both applied subtle and large moves to the director's well-chosen images of the borough's various neighborhoods, from Coney Island beaches to the stoops of Fort Greene and Bedford-Stuyvesant.
