Oldboy Director Shoots Movie On iPhone 4

Chan-wook Park, the director of Oldboy has just confirmed he shot a 30 minute short movie entirely on iPhone with his brother, Chan-kyon.  The movie is called “Paranmanjang (Life Full Of Ups And Downs)” and will open in South Korea on Jan 27th.  The budget for the movie was $133,000.  I thought the budget would be lower with iPhones being used but the production value must be grand.  Just like Oldboy, the movie sounds a bit complicated.  The story is about a fisherman who wakes up and discovers a girl wearing his clothes and calling him dad.  Park said they used additional lenses for the movie but everything was recorded in an iPhone 4.  Keep in mind that the phone can shoot in 720p so it’s more than likely, it was shot on HD.

I’m excited that filmmakers are finding new ways to make movies.  They’re definitely evolving with technology.
