Maher Zain’s Insha Allah by Mike Harris
Mike Harris has visualized the message of hope and redemption in Egyptian star Maher Zain's song Insha Allah. It's a powerful film, beautifully shot by August Jakobsson using Photosonics and Red One, and it was filmed and recorded in four languages (this being the English-language version).
Mike Harris on making the video for Maher Zain's Insha Allah
"I wanted to focus on details of human emotion, to capture the moment of change from distress to discovering inner peace, a moment of divine intervention. Suffering is found everywhere and it seemed a natural choice to create scenes that could be from many different places in the world.
"I decided to bring this wide range of scenes into Maher's performance space so that they appeared in front of him as manifestations of his thoughts. Although we were in effect creating glimpses of people's lives, I wrote back-stories for the characters, which served as a point of reference for the actor's performances, art direction, lighting, styling and make-up. I think this cohesive approach worked well.
"Photosonic slow motion was the perfect technique to engage the viewer to focus on the intimacy of human expressions, to really draw people in. We did very detailed castings, as finding the right range of cast who could deliver authentic performances was key. Slow motion reveals all and I am pleased that the actors did such a great job"
