Northwest Film Forum

About the project and the company

LOGLINE: Looking for love via online dating apps, a millenial cinephile finds swipe after swipe falling short of her ideal… but still continues to date around town way too much!
  • JUDY (Lead, Woman), huge cinephile who is effortlessly chic and self-assured; she’s out on the dating game and hitting the apps hard… but still picky. She’s been all about town and dated just about everyone.
  • JEFFREY (Man), totally simple boring type without any particularly interesting attributes…
  • NICOLE (Woman), hipster, fashionable type who is super snobby about films and definitely goes to film school (in the annoying way).
  • TAYLOR (Whichever Gender), generally snobby type who dresses well and believes themself to be far superior to others; why are they even app-dating, again?
  • DEAN (Whichever Gender), well-dressed and bougie
  • NINA (Woman), fairly scantily clad artist who has dated the main character, Judy, in the past; it didn’t work out then but she’s willing to give it a try just for amusements.
  • ARMANDO (Man), crypto tech bruhhhhhhhhh; a bit sleazy but dresses in the latest street fashions.
  • BOX OFFICE EMPLOYEE, who works at the best theater in town by choice. Cough.
