In the latest spot from its "Practically Magic" campaign, Apple highlights how the iPhone's camera quality is so good, you can make any video look like a Hollywood production.

What with the scenery, lighting, costumes and closeups of the actors, it almost looks as if Baz Luhrmann had decided to recast his famous version with much younger actors. However, it's soon revealed that the production is in fact a school play, and the camera work is that of a proud dad wielding an iPhone.
