Angry Birds film by Woodford Green director grabs South Korean attention

A short film shot entirely on an iPhone in Claybury Park has grabbed attention in South Korea.

Jonathan Chen, 27, of Madeira Grove, Woodford Green, directed Clipped Wings, a humorous video lasting just over a minute, last year.

After submitting it to the Original iPhone Film Festival, it was seen by South Korean festival organisers.

As a result, the film, developed with software used on blockbuster movies like Iron Man 2, will screen at the fourth Seoul International Extreme Short Image and Film Festival in September.

Mr Chen said: “It’s great.

The film shows the journey through the park of a soft toy version of one of the Angry Birds, a popular puzzle game app.
