Another in the Shot on iPhone series, this sweet tale, Saving Simon, was shot by the Oscar-nominated Reitman duo and is the first time the father and son have directed together.
Jason Reitman commented: “This is the greatest moment of all time to be a filmmaker. If you want to write stories, you pick up a pencil. If you want to write songs, you pick up a guitar. And if you want to make movies now you can just pick up an iPhone.”
Set to the song You and I, by Valerie June, it’s a charming tale about a little girl who desperately tries to preserve the magic of Christmas all year round by preventing her beloved snowman from melting.
Stowing him in the family freezer, she keeps a check on him throughout the year till he’s ready to emerge for a new festive frozen display.
But don’t even ask what happens when her carefully preserved snow chum finds himself in the path of a wayward cyclist… it’s a thaw point.
