Jonah Haber Combines Light And Dance For New Video

Jonah Haber is an up and coming filmmaker from Toronto who is currently carving out his own niche in the film world.


We first heard about him due to his most recent short film called Glow, and since then, we’ve been mesmerized with not only his general artistic vision, but the unusual ways he goes about to achieve certain effects.

Glow stars dancer, Niamh Wilson, and is currently being used as the official music video for Yes We Mystic’s song called “Working For The Future In The Interlake”.

The thing that is currently making Haber’s video stand out amongst the rest is the trick filming he used in order to capture what appears to be a ghost like stream of photographic images showcasing Wilson’s dance moves.

In order to achieve the effect, Haber used a combination of a glow in the dark backdrop screen, and a strobe light to capture her movements in a stop motion like fluidity.

Really proud of this one. Thanks to my incredible team. Link in bio

Despite Haber still remaining an almost entirely unknown presence on the social media forefront, we expect that he will soon be receiving more recognition, especially if he continues to produce pieces like this.
