(2) Ten Single Shots consists of 6 channels, each of which features a dancer. AN Jung-ju (1979-) collected 10 gunshots from the climax of the war movie and asked six dancers (three men and three women) to choreograph the moment of death to match the 10 gunshots. The writer filmed the scene of a dancer being shot to death by 10 shots. He then repeatedly shot the same scene 10 times at a time. The scene where the first take was shot was used, and the scene where the second take was shot twice was used. In this way, he brought in all 10 shots from other takes (not the best scenes).
If the dancer collapses with 10 shots in the edited video, the video will be rewinded and the dancers will stand up again. The writer reportedly used this method to revive individuals who were sacrificed in ideological and power struggles.
