Whilst in Jeju, South Korea - delivering a mobile-device filmmaking project, and making a documentary, me and my UCA Farnham (UK) students went with some students from NLCS, Jeju to the beach for the morning and made this little dance film. We had a lot of fun, and a really pleased with the finished result. Take a look at the film (below).
The Harubang are the Gods that protect the islanders in Jeju, South Korea. This short dance film explores the myths and traditions around the Harubang and how they are seen by the new generation of South Koreans.
This film was made as a result of a unique collaboration between staff and students from UCA Farnham (UK) and NLCS, Jeju (South Korea).
Choreographer: Claire Benson
Filmmaker: Anton Califano
An exciting but full-on time was had by us all at the North London Collegiate School in Jeju, South Korea. I travelled to the beautiful island of Jeju, South Korea with 3 UCA Farnham film students. In the 10 days we were there, we had to shoot, edit and screen a 10 minute documentary about the NLCS Jeju Arts Festival. Simultaneously, we delivered a 48 hour film project to 450 students at the school. All the films were made on mobile devices and submitted to our jury. Winners were chosen in several categories, and prizes were given out in a prestigious award ceremony.The Mobile Motion Film Festival also sponsored a special award. In the spare morning we had whilst we were there, we went to the beach to shoot a spontaneous dance film with students from the school and choreographer and guest artist Claire Benson.
