Luke Bather - 13th Dec 2016

Yousef creates a smart visual for Canadian duo Lydia & Sebastien. Beginning as a standard split-screen type affair, with colourful cinematography and clever framing to create contrasts and parallels between the left and right side, we're given a portrait of a love split across distance.

It's not long, however, before the sides of the screen begin to bleed seamlessly into one another. Little hints of it at first make you wonder if your mind is playing tricks on you, but before long you see a moped drive perfectly across the two screens.

A fun, short clip with some really nice VFX work from Yousef and co. that gives a heartwarming performance video an interesting edge.
