Rob Ulitski - 22nd Sept 2020

Danica Arias Kleinknecht directs a breezy dance promo for Kito, Zhu and Jeremih. 

The video for Follow observes an eclectic handful of dancers - including Caleb Bonney and Stephen Ojo from Beyoncé's Black Is King film - as they traverse the grungier side of NYC, performing in tunnels, overpasses and anywhere that inspires them on the way. 

Beautifully shot by DoP Patrick Golan, the grittier aesthetic and heavy use of contrast is a step away from usual dance films, which often prefer soft lighting and landmark locations. The choice to flip this concept on its head is an inspired one, and makes for a brilliant visual.
