This Charming Man: Evan Lysacek

Exclusive film of the gold-medal winning Olympian as he cuts a figure on the ice

“Shooting with Evan was one of the most magical experiences I have ever had on a set. His stunning presence, concentration and athleticism, combined with an incredible sense of grace, sensitivity and elegance turned it into a quasi-mystical experience. There was something almost spiritual in the light and delicate movements, and I felt that it was the most important part that needed to be captured in the film. This is what I have tried to convey whilst shooting and editing the footage.”
