Experiencing Interruptions?

An Hour from Now

Televisions programs these days consist of several scenes compressed to fit a specific time period. Information is crammed and combined with chyrons and other information, making it difficult for viewers to focus.

My team and I started looking into this phenomenon and wondered if this method of delivering information to viewers is the result of pressure brought on by the nature of broadcasting. We wondered if this type of programming is simply a preconceived notion of what television programs must look like and whether it accurately reflects what viewers want. This is how this project began.

The most distinct feature of this program is that it shows an hour-long take of a scene, without any editing or cutting. This is an experimental broadcast that has not undergone additional processing. And while the broadcast uses both a gimbal camera and a helicam, not one scene from both cameras is edited out.

The program was filmed around the pristine, remote area of Bongwha, in South Korea. There is a canyon tour train that makes round trips from Buncheon Station to Cheolam Station twice a day. It features the real-time journey of the train starting at boarding time until it reaches its final stop. The first-person view of the camera introduces the spectacular scenery train passengers enjoy in real-time.

With this format, the program encourages self-reflection. Since people would see the same sceneries differently, viewers are free to interpret the scenes themselves. They can discover their own feelings and meanings.
The program aims at helping viewers find their own messages and reach their own epiphanies instead of receiving a pre-conceived perspective from the makers of the program.

This program is a completely new type of broadcast. There are neither narration nor interview or background music. Only the scene and sound for one hour of shooting are in the program. That's why the program does not have a script. So I attach subtitles instead of scripts. I ask for your understanding.
