We had the good fortune of connecting with Min Soo Park and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Min Soo, what led you to pursuing a creative path professionally?
Filmmaking came naturally to me, as I always had a passion for experimenting with film and video. I went to film school and after the first year took a break to serve in the Korean military. While serving in the Korean military, I decided to take my career seriously and bought my first camera upon being honorably discharged. Collaborating with others to create something unique is what drives my passion for filmmaking, as it allows me to use my skills to achieve something truly special.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
For me, filmmaking is all about overcoming obstacles and finding solutions. I’m passionate about the problem-solving aspect of it, and I find it very rewarding when a project comes together.

Of course, there have been challenges along the way, but I’ve learned a lot from them. For example, I now prioritize clear communication with clients before starting production and ensure that we are on the same page. Also, I try to respect the creativity of the people on set. These lessons have helped me become more successful in my work.

Overall, what sets me apart is my collaborative mindset and my ability to solve problems creatively. I believe that these qualities, combined with experience, make me a valuable asset to any project. I’m excited about the future and look forward to more projects to come.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I’d take them to Chinatown for great Chinese food, grab drinks in the Lower East Side, and explore flea markets on weekends. We could check out indie theaters and do some vintage shopping in East Village and Williamsburgh, and maybe go clubbing in Bushwick.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would like to dedicate my shoutout to the School of Visual Arts, where I studied film and graduated last year. The people I met there have been invaluable to me. The teachers were great, and I learned a lot from them. I also met some amazing collaborators who are now emerging and growing together in the industry, I made friends who always support me and help me out on projects. I’m grateful for the experience and the people I met there.
