Nokia: Splitscreen "A Love Story"


Apologies in advance for not posting as regularly as I did in the past.  I'm hoping to change that immediately, and better yet, before the weekend.  I've always had a soft spot for Nokia, why wouldn't I? It's a Finnish company, and they make some amazing phones, or at least they used to.  Granted, they are stepping in the right direction with their N9, but let's see when it comes out. 

Anyhow, with Nokia on my mind, I thought I'd share one of their most recent videos titled "A Love Story".  A pretty cool piece of work.  It was filmed entirely with their N8, and it was part of a series of short movies where people were asked to submit their own movies.

JW Griffiths, the director behind this short film, was crowned the winner of Nokia Shorts 2011.  The video you are about to see shows the parallel lives of a couple in Paris and New York as they eventually make their way to the same spot.

A very creative piece of filmmaking, and very impressive as it was shot entirely on the phone.  I suppose that says a lot about the power behind Nokia's devices.  Let's only hope that they begin moving in the right direction sooner rather than later.



~Until Next Time~
