Why Tinder really needs you to swipe right on its first original series ‘Swipe Night’

Q Department + Tinder + 72 & Sunny + MSSNGPECES
The choose-your-own adventure style of storytelling, once a structure solely for books, has found a new wave of interest in Hollywood. Even before the critical praise of Black Mirror‘s 2018 special Bandersnatch, HBO and director Steven Soderbergh tried something similar with the slow-burn thriller Mosaic. Last April, Netflix dropped an interactive series with adventurist Bear Grylls, You vs. Wild. And 20th Century Fox announced a branching narrative film in the works. Now the dating app Tinder, for its first foray into original content, is looking to ride the wave with Swipe Night #qdepartment

While you look for love during the apocalypse in the choose-your-own-adventure show, Tinder hopes to boost engagement among its most prized demographic.

Q Department collaboration with Daniel Askill and Philip Glass launches on Nowness - with Dražen Bošnjak

Universal Machine
Daniel Askill unleashes his tech vision with a showdown between a young fighter and her android doppelgänger

Shot in the Arabian desert with a haunting backdrop of the Burj Khalifa, Universal Machine is set in a post-apocalyptic world where a gifted young girl must find a way to understand and overcome a violent encounter with a life-like android.

“The project is inspired by an evolution in human consciousness at the intersection of humanity, technology, spirituality and nature”

New York-based director and artist Daniel Askill enlisted a host of international creative talent for this project. Renowned American minimalist composer Philip Glass scores an ominous orchestral piece undercut by a stirring mezzo-soprano with additional music, sound design and mix by Q Department. Belgian choreographer and Beyonce’s 2017 Grammy performance director Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui planned the elaborate fight sequences, while the android was CGI mapped to Japanese dancer Tzuki Kozuki. The star of the film, Evnika Sadvakassova, is a boxer who gained the Guiness World Record for the most full contact punch strikes by a female in one minute. She won this accolade in 2018 at the age of 11. #qdepartment
