As the Torontoist has pointed out, the Toronto International Film Festival has created a new audience for its short films on YouTube this year. For the first time, shorts from the fest premiered on YouTube.
With Walter Woodman and Patrick Cederberg’s screencasted film “Noah” receiving over half a million views already, the festival must feel affirmed about its decision.
The film, told completely through a computer and an iPhone screen, follows Noah Lennox react to what he feels is his girlfriend’s waning interest in a relationship with him. Though it’s told exclusively through two screens, it’s imaginative and compellingly edited.
In an interview with the New Yorker titled “How a Relationship Dies on Facebook,” the filmmaking pair, recent Ryerson graduates, explained that the film came about because they’re both skeptical of social media, having both rid themselves of Facebook about a year ago.
