This JW Griffiths love story is no ordinary short film! This incredible piece of cinematic art was not only shot for a split screen, but was also shot using Griffith's mobile phone! Split screen cinema is a creative editing technique used by only the most adventurous of film makers. It is often difficult to follow when not done properly, but Griffith has mastered the art and skillfully edited the piece such that each shot matches up perfectly in time in a way that tells a beautiful story.

The last major motion picture to be edited in this style was the Aaron Eckhart's award winning 'Conversations With Other Women,' and Griffith's short film showcases incredible promise for the genre.

Implications - Filmmaking is an art form that is heavily criticized by the consuming masses, who are regularly exposed to endless amateur attempts from the YouTube loving population. The rise of YouTube has also signified a world where original content is few and far between, and films with elements that set them apart give audiences looking for something different a fresh perspective.
