On The Cusp, Longlist - Commercial

Young Love

Justyna Obasi

Love Song

A timeless love story is given a modern twist in Google Pixel’s “Young Love”. The film opens in front of an apartment building in New York City, where a tenant uses her Google Pixel to help a French visitor get inside her vacation rental. Even though they don't share the same language, a bittersweet romance unfolds between the two as they use the phone’s Live Translate to explore the city, share food allergies, and confess their 'I love you’s,’ before eventually saying their goodbyes.

A visual artist by training, Justyna employs colours, textures and format to serve a narrative purpose. Every project is a new place, a new adventure, holding beauty waiting to be discovered and revealed. Growing up with Polish and Nigerian parents in multiple countries and environments contributed to her gift for salvaging moments of beauty wherever they appear. Justyna was trained to direct actors at the National Film and Television School (NFTS) in Beaconsfield and yet she enjoys putting real people in front of a camera to feed on authentic and unfiltered emotion. With her intuitive and fearless approach to filmmaking, Justyna is a beautifully intimate and equally dynamic young voice in commercials.
