Shot on Iphone 'THE REEF' Explained By Director Sven Dreesbach

Shot on Iphone - 'THE REEF' Explained by Director Sven Dreebach in Maldives for Shot on Iphone Campaign
Sven Dreesbach, The Director of ‘The Reef’ Shot On IPhone, shares a little bit of the Maldives experience with the MVHOTELS.Travel.

Sven Dreesbach, The Director of ‘The Reef’ Shot On Iphone, shares a little bit of the Maldives experience with the MVHOTELS.Travel. He is also one of the editors & cinematographers of the Apple commissioned movie shot in the Maldives.

THE REEF was created by the devoted team of crews along with Maldives Whale Shark Research Program. MWSRP has been recording whale shark encounters in the South Ari Atoll region for over 10 years and part of their research is Whale Sharks. As an organisation MWSRP’s objective is to promote community-focused conservation initiatives and help the motives and raise money for the planned activities while encouraging and educating others.

1- What was your Maldives experience like? Was it your first time?

It was my first time. I met wonderful people and had a great time, particularly as I was on an exciting mission joining the research team.

2- How much of an advantage would it be to the destination Maldives, to be featured on the Apple’s #ShotoniPhone campaign?

I guess Apple’s reach is great for anyone being featured, Shot On Iphone, particularly for the Maldives as a potential travel destination for tourists. I am sure people will be interested finding out more about whale sharks and marine wildlife in the Maldives, thanks to Apple.

My name is Sven Dreesbach, film maker from Germany residing in Los Angeles, California. My work has taken me to places. I grew up traveling a lot with my family, so I am an explorer of new things for the most part.

3- How was Maldives chosen as a destination for this Apple commissioned video?

Apple chose to portrait the MWSRP due to their work in iOS app development.

4- Maldives is as we know an amazing destination to create contents? Any specific projects or ideas which you would love to contribute for video production?

The South Ari atoll of the Maldives, which i had the pleasure of traveling to, was definitely one of the most unique destinations I ever experienced. Being so remote from the next city, most of the life here happens around the reefs.

Not necessarily above, but rather under water it is where a plethora of wild life welcomes their visitors.

The island culture, traditions and history of the Maldive people would be an interesting subject to explore sometime as well as the local surf scene, being a surfer myself. Still bummed I didn’t have time to check out the northern atolls, that have a rich surf scene I hear.

Creative eye of Director Sven Dreesbach and Carglos Vargus, the team used Beastgrip Pro incorproated with the Pro Series 3X Tele Conversation Lens and 0.75X Wide Angle Lens as well as the DOF MK2 Adapter. AxisGo Water Housing were used in underwater Shots. Both the native capaera app and FILMiC Pro were used to shoot the whole project.

This was not the first #shotoniphone project by Sven.
