What is your screenplay about?

When a group of InstaSnap addicted Crazy Rich Kids ignore warnings not to go to the haunted Gomen Island, fun soon turns to horror when an activated augmented reality game forces them to #PlayOrDie

What genres does your screenplay fall under?

Horror

Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

I think an audience would find it thrilling, scary and an entertaining night out/in, plus with all the tech stuff I think it’s really ‘now’ and is perfect for its natural audience.

How would you describe this script in two words?

Creepy horror.

What movie have you seen the most times in your life?

Silence of the Lambs

How long have you been working on this screenplay?

Since January this year.

How many stories have you written?

5 feature screenplays, 1 TV pilot, three novels, 1 stage-play.

What is your favorite song? (Or, what song have you listened to the most times in your life?)

Go Your Own Way – Fleetwood Mac – or pretty much most other songs by Fleetwood Mac.

What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

Time poverty – I was supposed to be finishing my second novel…

Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

Animal Welfare/Rescue, particularly dogs.

You entered your screenplay via FilmFreeway. What has been your experiences working with the submission platform site?

I think it’s a brilliant tool. So useful to see so many amazing film competitions/festivals you probably wouldn’t hear about otherwise.

What influenced you to enter the festival? What were your feelings on the initial feedback you received?

I thought it would be absolutely brilliant to hear audience feedback. It’s so key to hear this and often you don’t hear it until the very end of the filming process (when it’s too late to change it!). The initial feedback we received from the festival readers was very encouraging.

Director Biography

Drc coursera pic

Daeryun Chang (aka Dae Ryun Chang) first received exposure to filmmaking while attending a film camp at the New York Film Academy. There he wrote and directed a short called “Ol’ Reliable” starring Mukul Chadda, now an established stage actor in India. Having degrees from UBC, Columbia and Harvard, he has spent his entire professional life as an academic and is currently a professor at Yonsei University where he teaches marketing and advertising. For his courses he has produced documentaries such as “Distribution in Korea” and “Eating and Health in Argentina.” He wrote the story and directed a short “I, Profess” that was an official selection at KOSMA Film Festival in 2014, and an official selection at #TOFF for December 2015. His second short, “Call Coho” has received monthly selections at ROMA CinemaDOC (December) and the Los Angeles Independent Film Festitval Awards (December) where it received the Best Foreign Short Award. He also teaches a MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) on the world’s largest platform Coursera called “International Marketing in Asia.” He can be followed on Twitter at @daeryun.

Director Statement

This movie was inspired by the tragic Sewol Ferry accident that resulted in the loss of hundreds of innocent victims, many of whom were teenagers. In Korea’s rush to economic success we have lost sight of the core values that have made Koreans work hard such as caring for family and other people. Materialism has never been one of Korea’s cherished virtues. My hope is that viewers in other countries can understand that economic progress should never outweigh mutual respect or personal integrity.

Director Biography

Fullsizerender.jpg

I’m a budding filmmaker from India who is not so perfect but loves attaining perfection. Its been only a few months since I took up filmmaking.
A complete turnaround as far as my career is concerned. I was into industrial construction as a Project Coordinator for 3.5 years. It was mid of 2016 where I realised that I want to pursue filmmaking as a career and I started working on it. I was just listening to my heart and I still do.

I took up a course at the MET Film School in London. That was a life changing experience for me.

My interest in filmmaking came from my father. He loves watching films and I am so inclined towards the entire process of filmmaking.

“Films are the what-ifs of everything, I never got to and never do on in life.”

Well, I have produced and directed a short film as a part of my graduation project which focuses on the male perspective with the issue of a stillborn child and also highlighting the emotional trauma faced by men on this sensitive issues.

This was achieved through writing and developing an idea into a script and harnessing team work, planning – organising, outsourcing services, casting process and delegating the responsibilities to the crew in respective fields.

All I aim is to make films with good intentions and collaborative efforts.
P.S My Psychological Friends: Interest Passion, Dedication, Imagination, Innovation and Networking.

Director Statement
