The “slow dating movement” is here, a much needed break from swiping and multitasking.
@Call2Date is an imaginary video dating app in the form of a comedy series. Each episode is a "DIY video" uploaded by one of the characters, in which they present themselves in the hopes of finding matches.
All women-identified characters are played by one actress, and all men-identified characters are played by one actor, as well as a range of genders and orientations.
The imaginary app prides itself on not allowing its users to spiral into messaging, texting and eventually ghosting before or shortly after meeting. It also doesn’t allow uploading images, since its founders believe that it takes at least two minutes of watching a person be, to get a sense of who they are.
The website of the series – call2date.club - will present a catalogue of all the characters and their videos, i.e. episodes.
