When a local craft brewery partners with a local filmmaker good things happen, as proof by the latest work from Minneapolis-based director Cody Brown.
Brown was recently enlisted to help Pryes Brewing Company get the word out the release of their first canned beer—their flagstaff brew Miraculum—In the Minnesota market. The result is a beautifully crafted thirty-second spot extolling the virtues of easier access to a tasty beer.
The bulk of the spot was shot in a garage, for blowtorch reasons, with the finishing shots taking place at the brewery itself. The goal was to take a simple concept and take it as far as it could go, crewing up a writer, VO talent and local composers to round out the piece. The ad is running on Facebook and Instagram, letting local beer-drinkers know that they can find their favorite ale on the shelves at their local liquor shop. Praise the beer gods!
