A Behind-the-Scenes Look at Park Chan-wook’s Paranmanjang


Earlier this week I posted a little article about “Oldboy” director Park Chan-wook’s upcoming short film “Paranmanjang” (aka “Night Fishing”), a flick that was created entirely with the filmmaker’s trusty iPhone. It’s a hell of an accomplishment, for sure, and should kick-start an entire online community based around budding directors who shoot entirely on mobile devices. If you were curious to see how, precisely, this cinematic feat was executed, feast your eyes on the embedded clip. It’s not in English, but it should give you an idea about how Mr. Park attained his goal.

Todd was raised on a steady diet of Hollywood blockbusters, late-night Cinemax programming, and USA’s “Up All Night,” which may explain why his taste in movies is more than a little questionable. When he isn’t providing news and reviews for Beyond Hollywood, he can be found lounging lazily on his couch, perched in front of his television, or dwelling in places where direct sunlight can be easily avoided. He's happily married, in his 30's, and totally badass. If you'd like to reach Todd, you can follow him on Twitter or send him email/scoops to todd (at) beyondhollywood.com.

    Saying this film was shot entirely with an iPhone may have been TECHNICALLY accurate, but deceptively so. He has a movie-sized crew on hand, plus that iPhone is being run through all manner of devices. I call shenanigans on Mr. Park.

      It is definitely kind of misleading to say that he filmed it all with his iphone. that give the impression that he’s out there with just his phone. still, it’s pretty cool that you don’t necessarily need a big, expensive camera to make a movie. I watched Bitter Feast recently, and that was filmed with what looks to essentially be a modified Canon still camera.
