Heartswipes is the upcoming rom-com short film from Lions Tail films.
Claire,(currently being recast) a young nerdy social introvert who loves makeup videos and fangirling over her favourite band. She signs up to the dating app, Heartswipes due to peer pressure from her mum. She meets Harry (hopefully played by you) also a nerdy social introvert (hipster). Harry loves sports, music and collecting pencils (random I know, always has a pencil behind his ear).
They meet for a date only problem is they're so socially introverted they don't know how to communicate other than via the app. Their relationship builds over time continuing to only communicate via the app. Only one day, Harry can't make a date, he messages Claire and the app crashes without him realising. Claire goes to respond but the app has crashed and her phone completely crashes and she is left heartbroken with no way to contact harry.
Harry lives with his flatmates and is early/mid-20s.
