Apple’s 2024 Chinese New Year Short: Little Garlic

Every year, Apple releases a short film for Chinese New Year that is shot on their latest iPhone, and every year I look forward to the story that is created. This short for this 2024 is called Little Garlic. Apple’s Description:

Usher in the Year of the Dragon with a story about a young girl who has a special shapeshifting ability. Together with Director Marc Webb, Apple brings you this charming and heartwarming tale about self-discovery in our pursuit of life in the modern world.

I thought that this short was wonderful. While it focuses on young people in China, it resonated with me because I could see some of the same challenges with my own children as they struggled to establish themselves in the work world.

As usual, a “making of” video has been released (you can see it below). Also, while this was shot on an iPhone, additional hardware and software were used and it was professionally edited.

Thanks for rating this! Now tell the world how you feel - .
