jumP’s Cooperman Continues Lexus Run with Team One, Serial Pictures

jumP Editor Richard Cooperman continues his run on all things Lexus with yet another collaboration with Team One and Serial Pictures’ Jonas Åkerlund.

The two spots are high-energy declarations cementing Lexus IS as the vehicle of choice for the edgy and the irrepressibly cool. Cooperman conjures a masterful blend of Åkerlund’s powerful contrasting colors in Color Shift, a vivid visual spectacle showcasing the IS’ uniqueness. Crowd takes viewers from a strobe-light infused dance party to the high-speed wide-open outdoors of a Lexus at full throttle, a counterintuitive journey that Cooperman blends into one deft narrative.

“Richard is an amazingly versatile talent,” states jumP EP Betsy Beale. “To turn out two spots that are so different in tone and content so flawlessly and so close together really speaks to his skill and professionalism. It’s no wonder Team One and Serial Pictures keep requesting his services.”

“Lexus is a blast to work on,” Cooperman says. “At this point, I’ve worked so much with Jonas and everyone at Team One that we have developed an amazing production dynamic. Each project gets smoother. I look forward to teaming up with each of them many more times.”
