WSJ reported that Park Chan-wook, one of South Korea’s best directors, gets lots of attention when he introduces a new movie. This is because of a 30-minute short called “Paranmanjang,” which is Korean for “Ups and Downs.” shot with the iPhone 4. “From hunting for a film location, shooting auditions, to doing a documentary on the filming process, everything was shot with the iPhone 4,” Mr. Park said after the screening. “We went through all the same film-making processes except that the camera was small.”.

Mr. Park was not the first South Korean moviemaker to experiment this way. Last October, KT sponsored a film festival with 12 short movies also made with the iPhone 4. Mr. Park’s new work will be screened at nine cinemas nationwide later this month.
