Christmas of 2015 was approaching, and the OkCupid app was about to be featured on the Android Play Store. We thought its listing page was looking a little lonely, so we decided make a video... in 5 days 😱.
I had a blast working on this with Thomaz Marcondez. We both co-wrote it, built the sets, shot the thing in my apartment, and finished post production in time for product launch.

This was one of those projects that without creative trust from leadership, there's no way it could have been pulled off… especially not in 5 days.
Working at OkCupid gave me a chance to get my hands dirty using things like ink, paper cutouts, and plastic toy puppies. Jumping across mediums and channels, these ended up being used for video, Instagram, Twitter, and our data blog.
