Apple asked RYOT to test drive the iPhone 6s, so they took it to Haiti and made a film about color. They used some cutting edge filmmaking techniques with this incredible device and learned that you don’t need a professional rig to tell an incredible story. Watch the film after the jump.
The film tells the story of one citizen from Jalouzi, one of the largest slums in Haiti, who is determined to bring color to the area by helping paint the entire town, literally. Believing that color has the power to transform his community, he’s helping to paint everywhere – on houses, on buses, and the entire hillside. Armed with brushes of bright blues, pastel pinks, and sunshine yellows, he’s helping to mobilize citizens of all ages, determined to turn the grey town into a rainbow full of color to lead the way to a brighter Haiti.
All of RYOT’s films are about changing people’s perceptions, especially about Haiti. There is so much negativity in the media, so we want to show a different side of the country. It’s beautiful, and there’s so much creativity and resilience. We want to show the world Haitian heroes.
You can support children in Haiti through creative initiatives of the RYOT Foundation.
The film was shot in 4K entirely on the new iPhone 6s Plus.
