The 10-minute short film was shot entirely on an iPhone 7 Plus, demonstrating its incredible features such as 4K recording, slow-mo, time-lapse and low light capabilities. The short film is complimented by a set of inspiring masterclasses, "Through the eye of Michel Gondry” that show how the film was made and some of Gondry’s preferred filmmaking techniques including stop motion and perspective tricks.
