That’s Park Chan-wook, acclaimed South Korean director of the classic psychological thriller “Old Boy“. Here’s one of my favorite scenes from the film..

Park is soon to unveil his new film “Paranmanjang”, in English translated to “Ups and Downs”. He’s been publicizing the fact that the entire film was shot on a few iPhones 4. What!? Not surprising, it’s an industry theme that’s been bubbling for some time, using cell phone technology to shoot things, but until now it’s mostly been documentaries. Park says they used external lenses, which I’m very curious how they rigged them, and that the entire process was just like any other film. Looking forward to checking this out.
