The video was taken by photographer and director Steven Counts. Apple explains that American Samoa is far more likely to produce NFL athletes than anywhere else in the world:
American Samoa – ‘Football Island’ – produces athletes that are 56 times more likely to play in the NFL than Americans from anywhere else. Photographer and Director Steven Counts presents a portrait of Eddie Siaumau, a 17 – year old athlete who has just accepted a full ride scholarship to a D1 university.
The short film itself was shot on an iPhone XS with a handful of accessories: DJI Osmo Mobile 2, FiLMiC Pro, Joby GripTight PRO Video GP Stand, NiSi Smartphones Filter Kit.
