Globalization at its best with accordion, violin, double bass and guitar
Did a shoot at a location which I am both quite fond of and sick of simultaneously. It is an English language camp about an hour out of Seoul called Paju English village. It is modeled on a quasi American-European style of architecture, and is used very frequently by film teams in Korea who want to create the illusion that they are not in Korea.
As such, I have filmed in Paju A LOT. I like the place most of the time, just not when they pipe children’s songs through the speaker system throughout the camp. Things start to feel ominously like Clockwork Orange. The downside is that nearly every shoot I did in Paju was as an extra. Something I’m starting to phase out slowly, but can’t fully do as bills still have to be paid.
My last shoot there was most enjoyable as there was a quartet who played some wonderful music. I captured them on camera playing Waltz No. 2 by Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich in this video:
It was a little surreal in that they were a Russian band (playing a Russian composed song) which reminds me of Paris in the spring, at an America-themed English camp in Seoul, South Korea. Essentially the epitome of globalization at its best.
