Festival of big films made on a small gadget
In the first festival of its kind, a dozen renowned Korean filmmakers and cameramen were challenged to make short films with the iPhone 4.
For these film-industry people, who are accustomed to lugging around bulky cameras and equipment, shooting a film with the 137-gram (0.3 pounds) digital gadget was a relief, but presented a number of technical obstacles.
“I tried to find unique angles and create an atmosphere that could be only made with the iPhone,” Jeong Yoon-cheol said. “I hope [the iPhone] becomes an outlet for creative film lovers in the future.”
Some of the films are poetic, some are comical and some are more avant-garde. “If I had one more chance, I would make a 90-minute feature film with it,” Bong Man-dae said.
