Michel Gondry and Apple's Quirky Trike Adventure is Shot Entirely on iPhone

Michel Gondry and Apple's Quirky Trike Adventure is Shot Entirely on iPhone

Today Apple debuted Détour, a short film by Oscar-winning director Michel Gondry and produced by Paritzan, shot entirely using only an iPhone. Détour is a lively celebration of French summer inspired by the works of Jaques Tati and Albert Lamorisse, among others, to pay homage to French cinematic history and culture.

Détour follows the story of a young girl’s tricycle, which gets lost as a French family leaves home for their summer holiday. After becoming accidentally separated from the family, the tricycle is propelled on an unbelievable journey of seemingly unplanned events through the stunning French countryside. On the way, viewers are introduced to the eccentric and endearing characters that are typical of Michel Gondry’s imagined universe.

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. The masterclasses can now be viewed at

In support of the film launch, Director Michel Gondry will speak at Friday's Today @ Apple event at Apple Marché Saint-Germain in Paris at 18:00 - 19:30. Gondry will share his perspective on the future of cinema, how he shot Détour on the iPhone, followed by a screening of the film.
