【Branded Shorts of the Year 2017 Winner】
Director：Chris Booth & Joel Pylypiw
Production Company：Skin & Bones
“Notes” depicts written conversations between a married couple. The story shows the many ups-and-downs the two go through from their dating days to their elderliness. The scenario illustrates affluent love and resonates strongly with the audience. With its absolutely simple pictures – their hands and notes left for each other – their lives are presented in a realistic way. Cleverly designed details trigger our imagination: Pens change as time passes only before the couple gets older, which makes us wonder if it is because they have found a durable pen or it is because writing has become more difficult.
