For its latest iPhone promo, Apple has tapped French director Michel Gondry to create a short film shot entirely on an iPhone 7 Plus. As it’s a Gondry film, the short is a little surreal — it follows the adventures of a forgotten tricycle as it travels in search of its owner.

Gondry also gave us some behind-the-scenes info about the shoot, recording six different how-to videos on set. He shows us how he makes iPhone video looks so cinematic, and how to capture slo-mo, time lapse, and stop motion. He also teaches us how to use perspective tricks and how to shoot at nighttime. Watch the full short above and the tutorials below.
