As expected, Korean filmmakers had once again brought the glory to their country as two of them won from the 8th Los Angeles 3D Movie Festival. The directors who had won on the said festival are namely Sin Tae Ra and Joy Park.
Sin Tae Ra had won the first place in Jury Award for his film, â€œ27 Years Laterâ€, the second prize had went on for â€œUYUYU!” by Colombian filmmaker Santiago Caicedo and the third one was awarded to Koreaâ€™s Joy Park with the movie, “My Dream”.
The annual celebration had shown independent stereoscopic 3D films coming from countries around the world and jury from the Hollywood experts that includes Chuck Comisky who is the 3D VFX supervisor of “Avatar”. This 8th year of the event was done on the 14th and 15th of May in the downtown of Los Angeles.
The movie of Sin Tae Ra tells a story of a scientist named, Dr. Sim who had developed a time machine that can be only used for once, and plans to turn the clock back a year with a lottery data. But things didnâ€™t go as planned when the time setting was changed to 27 years. This short film was seen in Korea earlier this current year when it opened the Seoul International Extreme-Short Image and Film Festival.
Joy Parkâ€™s film had features the performances by the China Disabled People’s Performing Art Troupe (CDPPAT) and the jury expressed, “maximizes the 3D effect…. creates a special art which delights audiences as the performers present what they have dreamed of”,
On the other hand, many Koreans are happy to know that slowly the Korean movies will be able to make it worldwide and soon many people will be able to recognize the view and talent of Koreans. Most had expressed, â€œwoah~ this is good to knowâ€, â€œyeah, I know those directors! Congratulations to themâ€, â€œI watched the â€œ27 years laterâ€ and it was really good, no doubt it got the first rank! Congratulations!â€ and â€œthe film is good that is why no one will doubt for it! Congratulations to the directors!â€
