Excuse Me, We’re Making A Movie Here

According to the Wall Street Journal, Park Chan-Wook’s latest film was shot entirely on an iPhone. He shot a 30-minute film on the new iPhone 4. No more excuses, I’m making a movie (a real one). Here’s the article from the Wall Street Journal.

Park Chan-wook, one of South Korea’s best directors, gets lots of attention when he introduces a new movie. About 100 reporters showed up Monday morning for a screening of his latest work, a 30-minute short called “Paranmanjang,” which is Korean for “Ups and Downs.”

Some were there because of the way Mr. Park made the movie: shooting it entirely on the latest version of Apple Inc.’s iPhone.

“From hunting for a film location, shooting auditions, to doing a documentary on the filming process, everything was shot with the iPhone 4,” Mr. Park said after the screening. “We went through all the same film-making processes except that the camera was small.”

He became famous in 2000 with “JSA (Joint Security Area),” an intricate story that captured the tragic reality of the divided Koreas. Then, in 2004, he won the Grand Prix award at the Cannes Film Festival with “Old Boy,” the second of a three movies in what he called his revenge trilogy. And then in 2009, his movie “Thirst” won the Jury Prize at Cannes.
