Splitscreen: A Love Story

Posted by Stephen Petrey on Friday, April 26, 2019

Working at Vimeo, there’s no shortage of Staff Picks to go through and watch in the archives. This was Staff Picked originally in 2011, but I just happened across it today!James W Griffiths is the director of this short, and I don’t have much else to share other than the video description:

Shot entirely on the Nokia N8 mobile phone. Winner of the Nokia Shorts competition 2011.

For context the N8 was released 9 years ago. It had a 12.1 megapixel resolution which was unheard of at the time. But also, not great when we’ve been spoiled 4K+ resolutions as of lately. It also had a 16GB SSD, and a SD memory card slot.

It’s extraordinary and really wonderful what we can achieve around such simple medium constraints.
