Director makes movie on iPhone
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - January 10, 2011 -- Acclaimed South Korean film director Park Chan-wook has discovered a new cinematic tool: the iPhone.
The director of South Korean movies "Old Boy," "Lady Vengeance" and "Thirst," said Monday that his new fantasy-horror film "Paranmanjang" was shot entirely on Apple Inc.'s iconic smartphone.
"Paranmanjang" means a "life full of ups and downs" in Korean. It is about a man transcending his current and former lives.
Park told reporters the new technology created strange effects because it is new but also a medium the audience is used to.
Park made the 30-minute film with his younger brother Park Chan-kyong, also a director.
