3. A well-made thriller that goes back and forth between thrills and twists
“Confession” is a well-made suspense thriller created by Realize Pictures Co., Ltd., which produced projects that surpassed 10 million moviegoers including “Masquerade” and the “Along with the Gods” series, and a veteran production team as well as the delicate and meticulous storyteller-and-director Yoon Jong Seok.
As the story unfolds in a limited space and set, the production team conducted both individual and group script readings over 10 times to grasp the actors’ movements, expressions, gestures, and tones of voices, and the team actively reflected those aspects in the scenario and storyline from the pre-production stage. In order to capture the chill in the winter air, they also put their hearts into selecting appropriate filming locations. To remove the warm feeling of hardwood furniture, the art team even used gray tone woods and cold-colored props to decorate the spaces.
The filming method gives the audience the feeling of watching from a close distance, while the lighting maximizes the unexpected turn of events and emotions by adjusting the color tone according to the speaker’s gaze. “Confession,” which took great contemplation and effort, will create greater immersion with an intense and realistic mise-en-scène and well-made production.
“Confession” will hit theaters on October 26. Check out the teaser here!
