South Korean filmmaker uses iPhone to shoot movie - Columbia Daily Tribune

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — Acclaimed South Korean film director Park Chan-wook is wielding a new cinematic tool: the iPhone.

Park, director of the internationally known "Old Boy," "Lady Vengeance" and "Thirst," said yesterday his new fantasy-horror film "Paranmanjang" was shot entirely on Apple Inc.'s iconic smart phone.

"Paranmanjang," which means a "life full of ups and downs" in Korean, is about a man transcending his current and former lives.

The movie, made on a budget of $133,000, was shot using the iPhone 4 and is slated to open in South Korean theaters Jan. 27.

Park made the 30-minute film with his younger brother Park Chan-kyong.

Park Chan-kyong said a wide variety of angles and edits were possible because numerous cameras could be used.

"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. Compared to other movie cameras, the iPhone was good "because it is light and small and because anyone can use it," he said.

He said the directors attached lenses to their phones, and nothing was particularly different from shooting a regular movie.
