Park Chan-Wook and his iPhone- to hell those sponsors!

Majority of human beings purchase iPhone4 because it’s the most ‘in-thing’. And most of them can’t even maximize the potentials of this bewitching gadget. They are usually confined with calling and texting. Some are able to download games, eBooks, and many other useless and not-so-important applications for time-wasting-and-unproductive priorities.

South Korean director Park Chan-Wook
But for someone like Park Chan-Wook, an iPhone4 is a new innovation for creating a movie.

This year, South Korea, through one of her outstanding children, produced the first short film shot with an iPhone, the fantasy-horror film "Paranmanjang" or “Night Fishing” in English.

"Paranmanjang," which means a "life full of ups and downs," is about a man transcending his current and former lives. He catches a woman while fishing in a river in the middle of the night. They both end up entangled in the line, and he thinks she is dead.

Suddenly, though, she wakes up and attempts to strangle him, and he passes out. When the woman awakens him, she is wearing his clothing and he hers. She cries and calls him "father."

The movie, made on a budget of $133,000, was shot using the iPhone 4.

Again, it’s a 30-minute movie. Unlike in the Philippines where they produce a 120-minute movie/commercial jam-packed with overrated actors.

I don’t hate my country. I just hate our absurdly glamorous movie industry. To hell those sponsors!
