The Music of Jo Hyeja

UPDATE: We’ve posted the trailer for this film to Youtube, but it’s also embedded at the official webpage for the film. That’s over here.

ORIGINAL POST: The Music of Jo Hyeja is currently completed, and has been sent out to several film festivals for the 2012 season. The visuals were finalized in February 2012, with the soundtrack and audio editing finished in March 2012. The original language is in Korean, and we have English and German subtitles so far.

The film is an adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s story, “The Music of Erich Zann.” I wrote the original script as well as the shooting script, although my partner (the director) translated it into Korean, making minor adjustments (as well as more significant adjustments — cuts — in editing.)

For now, we do not have a trailer, but when we do have one I will post it here. (Man! We gotta get on that.) In the meantime, here are some other goodies:

  • Some screenshots, for your viewing pleasure:

The Window

“In the silence there came a slight sound from the window—the shutter must have rattled in the night wind, and for some reason I started almost as violently as did Erich Zann.” (H.P. Lovecraft, “The Music of Erich Zann”)
