Jameson Whiskey, Another Door Opens

Created by Thinkhouse, filmed in Ireland, New York, South Africa and India and posted in Ireland, all remotely, this is the global social and digital campaign for Jameson Whiskey.  

Called ‘Another Door Opens’, this was Thinkhouse’s first major global campaign for Jameson Whiskey since it won the account following an international pitch in May 2020.  The campaign supported Jameson Whiskey’s trade partners around the world as they dealt with lockdown and prepared for opening up again.

Shot during the Covid-19 pandemic, this remotely produced campaign captured footage and scenes in seven different countries before editing and producing the final version locally in Dublin. 

Windmill dealt with a super quick turnaround and a lot of moving parts as rushes from all over the world arrived over the course of a week before moving to edit, grade with Matt Branton and finish with Manus Goan then delivered the final spot to a tight deadline.
