Carol studied at The American Film Institute Conservatory where she began writing her first feature film, “Loves Park.” In 2014, “Loves Park” made it to the second round of the Sundance Screenwriting Lab. She continued to write the film and bought an MC-Roland 808 synthesizer, released a handful of bedroom recordings, and titled her project White Blush that now serves up an ambient electronic score to her debut film. Her work as a musician and music video director has been featured in blogs, festivals, The American Cinematheque in Los Angeles, and received a Genero.tv Music Video Grant.
In 2017, she participated in Los Angeles’ Mocap Summit directing scenes using the latest motion capture technology and mentored by Halon Entertainment’s Daniel Gregoire who was the lead previsualization director for “War for the Planet of the Apes.” Her feature film “Loves Park” in 2018 was picked up for distribution by Global Genesis Group, and currently she is in development of a science fiction film called “Cerulean Trace,” which recently made it to the 2nd round of the Asian-American Sundance Screenwriting Lab.
“Los Angeles-based Carol Rhyu, aka White Blush’s reverb-drenched vocals and dreamy synths have a certain intoxication to them, something that makes her music so addictive and emotional. The aptly-titled “Ether” follows this even more so than usual, creating an even more haunting mood reminiscing at points the best shoegaze bands. It’s one for headphones and hiding under the covers” – No Fear of Pop
“The artist Carol Rhyu composes music in special, visual, and well noted cinematic ways that we detailed in last year’s write up for “Neptune.” And even then, we never quite could have imagined the electric etched otherside of this world that Rhyu has made with Loves Park, something even beyond the Lynch/Badalamenti/Cruise love, and profound appreciation for Gary Wilson.” – Impose Magazine
