Apple has published its latest profile report, this time detailing the use of Macs to capture a moving film about orphans left alone when HIV kills their parents.

Made on a shoestring budget, We Are Together is a film about a small South African orphanage called Agape. Children there have formed a choir, singing to help them come to terms with the death of their parents.

It's a growing problem in Africa. There's 1.2 million orphans in South Africa alone who have lost their parents to the killer disease, life-saving treatment for which costs just 20-pence per patient per day.

The film captures three years of the children's life, and a Mac was instrumental to making the film. Without it, it's likely the film - which is currently on release at various cinemas across the UK - would never have been made.

The Mac was incredibly useful. We could ingest footage into Final Cut Pro and cut shots wherever we were”, said director Paul Taylor.
