Park Chan-wook, an iPhone 4 to film “Paranmanjang”

South Korean Director Creates a Film with The iPhone 4

One of South Korea’s well known film directors, Park Chan-wook, has created a 30 minute fantasy film entitled “Paranmanjang,” (Ups and Downs) using the iPhone 4.  It is receiving quite a bit of publicity, including a recent article in the Los Angeles Times.  Park first achieved fame in 2000 with his film “Joint Security Area.”  The idea arose last fall just as he and his brother (and fellow director) Park Chan-kyong were set to begin filming a fantasy about a middle-aged fisherman who one day hauls a woman out of the water’s depths. That’s when South Korea’s exclusive iPhone distributor offered to finance the $130,000 project if the pair agreed to use the device to make a theater-quality film.
