The Splitscreen Love Story [Video]
The following is likely the coolest video you’ll watch all week. Trust us! It was filmed entirely on a Nokia N8 phone as part of the 2011 Nokia Shorts competition, and recently voted winner. Directed by JW Griffiths, Splitscreen: A Love Story follows the dual journeys of a man in Paris and a woman in New York, synchronized to a melancholy piano-driven soundtrack. Streetscapes and events line up almost perfectly in each city.

Love born from happenstance is the theme here. Both strangers separated by an ocean, on a seemingly similar course – from home to subway to airport – eventually find themselves lost on a span in London. We’ve already watched this thing a zillion times. So should you.
