Honey” is the title track and first single from the Vakili Band’s 2023 album. The video’s stunning look was achieved through a technical process envisioned by Brodeur and captured by cinematographer Nick Capra. Though the video appears to be filmed in standard slow motion, the song was performed on location by the Vakili Band at more than double speed, then slowed down during the editing process to ensure every shot was carefully synchronized to achieve its unique visual style.

“We are so honored to have received this award,” said Brodeur. “This is a testament to the hard work and vision of our entire team, and our creative collaboration with front woman Lily Vakili of the Vakili Band. We are so grateful to the Garden State Film Festival for recognizing our work.”
