New York-based director Casey Brooks captured beautiful 18-year-old dancer, Keean Johnson (who reminds one of a young Joseph Gordon Levitt) coming out of the waves on El Matador beach in Malibu.
“This was a spontaneous moment. Some dancer friends wanted to take me to this beach on my day off in LA. It was shot on my iPhone 6 because my other camera battery had died! The jittery effect happens when quick movement is reversed, but I love how he becomes so mechanical as the piano speeds up.
I caught this in one-take, with Keean performing a piece by the choreographer Erica Sobol… I think it works beautifully with Philip Glass’s ‘Mad Rush.’”
