During a trip to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, Sikora set out to capture the beautiful country in a completely different way; in a rain storm. “I really was excited when it rained the last night we were there and it rained hard, for the entire night.”
Sikora captured the entire film with his iPhone XS Max, the latest smartphone from Apple. “Testing out the low light, colors, noise and all were important and the iPhone just worked. Being waterproof, I didn’t have to worry about getting soaked. It was definitely one of those moments where you lived in the moment and just enjoyed the rain. It was roughly 4 AM and the streets of the village were pretty much deserted.” Sikora said.
The goal for the film was to capture the beauty in Mexico with the little things that people may just walk by. “For me, it was seeing reflections in the puddles, rain being lit up from street lamps, it was really warm out so I was out there for maybe 45 minutes filming everything and I am really happy how it came out.” Sikora concluded.
