Who is Andy To?

A self-taught filmmaker and creator from Oakland, California, Andy To could have ended up in a life of crime had it not been for a single iMac that was not stolen from his high school’s computer lab.

That iMac was ultimately what led Andy to channel his creativity into making videos — telling stories — and later, even impress Apple CEO Tim Cook with his incredible travel films shot entirely with iPhone (like this one).
