"Paranmanjang": Movie Made Entirely with Apple iPhone 4

An award-winning South Korean film director shot a 30-minute movie using only an Apple iPhone 4. "The new technology creates strange effects because it is new and because it is a medium the audience is used to," Park said. "Paranmanjang," which means a "life full of ups and downs" in Korean, is about a man transcending his current and former lives. The movie is also known as "Night Fishing". Lead actress Lee Jung-hyun said the movie "mixes all elements from horror and fantasy to some humor". The movie was made on a budget of 150 million won ($133,000).

Park used 10 Apple iPhone 4s to simultaneously shoot scenes. A smartphone does has constraints in making a movie. Park said of his vision, "There are many limits. Those small cameras, of course, have such limits. However, instead of complaining, it should be approached in a unique style, that is intended for the movie, then in can have better results than any other movies." Using the iPhone 4 resulted in a less choreographed movie and allowed a "unique sense of flexibility". Park hopes the movie will inspire younger film makers to look at the iPhone 4 as an artistic tool.
