Meet BeScene, a Tinder-style networking app for the film industry

When we started the course, she told us the industry standard was “team”: some sort of cross between business partnership and a marriage. She told us the history of her relationships. How her partner had “got her”, how they’d bounced ideas off each other, cranked the creativity up, climbed the slippery career pole together. We looked around the room at each other, trying to pick someone without basing it on whether we fancied them. We had our artificial partner of course but this was different… She saw it faces and pulled Matchmaker up on her screen. I hardly recognized myself.
