There’s only been a handful of films I’ve found on Vimeo that I’ve watched more than once, or saved to show my wife because I knew she had to see it. Splitscreen: A Love Story is one of those films. Directed by James W Griffiths and shot entirely on Nokia Mobile phones, the film tells a simple love story in a visually arresting first person Splitscreen. It’s innovative, interesting, and pure film-making. The patience, planning, scouting, and execution of which just puts a smile on my face, and makes me grateful for the wonderful and experimental opportunities today’s technology makes available to us.
I hope you enjoy it.
