Park Chan-wook’s iPhone film to hit theatres
Director Park Chan-wook, director of cult film Oldboy, has created a 30 minute short film shot entirely with the Apple iPhone 4. Chan-wook, who co-directed alongside younger brother Chan-kyong, created the short fantasy/horror movie on just an £85,500 budget.
The film, called Paranmanjang: ‘a life full of ups and downs’ in Korean, recounts the tale of a man who catches a woman while fishing in a river.
“There are some good points of making a movie with the iPhone as there are many people around the world who like to play and have fun with them,” Park Chan-wook said recently. His brother Chan-Kyong emphasized the wide range of edits and perspectives in the film, attained by using multiple iPhones.
