  • Chan-wook Park is one of my favorite directors working today thanks to his films like Joint Security Area, Oldboy, Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, and Lady Vengeance. 

    His films, while often brutally violent, tend to be shot beautifully well, which makes news that his latest, a 30-minute short called Paranmanjang, was shot entirely with an iPhone 4, all the more interesting. 

    Is this the direction film is headed? Google also just showed off a movie studio video editing app for Android Honeycomb this week at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. 

    Here’s the teaser for Paranmanjang or "NIght Fishing":

    It doesn’t look as visually appealing as most of Chan-wook Park’s films, but the fact that everything was done from the iPhone is pretty impressive. "We went through all the same film-making processes except that the camera was small," the Wall Street Journal quotes him as saying.

    Combined with the rise of online video, we can no doubt expect to see a great deal more of this style of filmmaking.
