What do you get when you combine two people in love, Paris, New York, and a Nokia phone?
The answer is the winner of the Nokia Shorts 2011 contest, a two and a half minute long movie shot using only the Nokia N8 phone. "Splitscreen: A Love Story," directed by JW Griffiths with director of photography Christopher Moon took the first place prize for an award of $10,000.
Eight finalists were given $5,000, two Nokia N8s and a few weeks to make their films, with premieres at the Edinburgh Film Festival. "Splitscreen" is the sweet fable of a man and a woman, one in Paris, the other in New York, living their respective lives in splitscreen view, until finally, the two meet, and the screens merge.
