Nokia Shorts Competition Winner: JW Griffiths Wins with Splitscreen: A Love Story, A Romantic Short Film Made by Nokia N8 Cell Phone
Low-budget art is very in with the recent recession, and Nokia’s recent competition, The Nokia Shorts Competition, is one of many contests arising out of a combination of a struggling economy and a dire need for creativity to help drive sales. The Nokia Shorts Competition was a search for who could make the best short film using only a cell phone camera. Armed with only his Nokia N8 cell phone, JW Griffiths won with his short film “Splitscreen: A Love Story”.
