Press Release from Absolute
Why wait all year to shift through the four seasons when Absolute NY can lead you through them in fewer than thirty seconds? The studio's techno-magicians return to do just that in a spot for Swedish energy giant Vattenfall via Lowe Brindfors, Stockholm.
Frost follows a man steadily walking across a pastoral landscape as the seasons meld from bright green summer to leaf-falling, multicolored autumn to snowy winter. As he walks, his wardrobe changes, from light jacket to heavy coat to parka-like hood. The spot ends with a shot of Absolute-generated snowflakes falling across the landscape and sticking in his beard, hair and jacket.
