I must apologize to the gamers who may have been lured here expecting an ode to the humble splitscreen mode. Perhaps my choice of post title was a little ambiguous. This is about love, and where there is love, there is a often a story about it. This one just so happens to be told in splitscreen.
Directed by James W Griffiths and shot entirely on the N8 smartphone for the Nokia Shorts 2011 competition, the short film tells the story of two long-distance lovers whose separate lives are destined to intersect. It’s predictable but endearing nonetheless, see Splitscreen: A Love Story below.
Griffiths’ short film took first place in the competition. You can see the other submissions on Vimeo.
