I am attempting to tell two seemingly disconnected stories simultaneously with the aid of split screen. Using a number of graphic matches and similarities/juxtapositions within the frames, I hope to unite the two images. In the end, the two stories will merge and come together, but both sides will still remain somewhat separate and disconnected. If this was not already a challenge enough, I also plan on telling one of the two stories backwards. I just pray I don't give my audience a headache. It will be an experiment, that's for sure.
Here is a recent fram grab from the male's side of the film.
Also, a friend linked me this short film entitled Symmetry by a company named "evernone." It is very effective in the way it plays with the split screen imagery. Overall, a really beautiful film that really challenges the emotions and expectations of the viewers.
