Splitscreen: A Love Story

Who doesn't love a good story? Especially one told in a unique and lovely way.

Nokia and Vimeo recently held the Nokia Shorts 2011 Contest, inviting filmmakers to create short films using only Nokia N8 smartphones and a budget of $5,000. The eight finalists were all shown at the Edinburgh Film Festival. UK filmmaker James W. Griffiths created a clever and heartwarming piece entitled Splitscreen: A Love Story. And as New York Times writer Brian Stelter put it, it may just be the greatest thing you'll watch this week.

I mean, c'mon. Totally adorable.

Griffiths won the contest and the $10,000 grand prize. Check out his Vimeo channel to view his pitch for the film as well as a short "making of" clip.
