Watch ‘Détour’ - the new Apple-produced film shot entirely on an iPhone

Apple certainly likes to show off the camera capabilities of its iPhone 7 and 7 Plus models, and has done so on many occasions over the last few months. From portrait-mode-promotion videos, to actual magazine photo shoots, we have seen iPhone 7 and iOS’ video and image production skills from many angles. However, Cupertino seems far from done with the campaign, as new Apple-produced videos that focus on iPhone’s camera productivity were published this Thursday.

The result of the production is an 11-minute film, called ‘Détour’, which was shot entirely on an iPhone and directed by the French screenwriter, producer and director, Michel Gondry. Apple has also published six more tutorial-like videos that show ‘the secrets of the director to successful iPhone 7 movie’.

‘Détour’ follows the story of a child’s tricycle that gets dropped by accident from a family’s campervan, and ends up travelling through picturesque grounds and towns in France. The video is light-hearted and colourful, while some of the scenes seem purposefully shot with key video enhancements in iOS and iPhone 7, such as time-lapse and slow-motion effects.

The six other videos focus on tips for specific iPhone video features used in the ‘Détour’ film, such as night or cinematic shots, and give a peek into the backstage of the film’s production.

Apple is hosting a screening of the film today at its Marché Saint-Germain store in Paris. But in case you haven’t planned to attend, you can watch ‘Détour’ and the six tutorial videos below.

Exactly...i watched the last episode of MKBHD on the "Shot on iPhone" claim, and it is a clear example that the phone alone cannot do it like they want us to think looking at the ad.
