Joel Corry: “BED” - 3 mins 10s

Modern dating is a minefield even when not stymied by a pandemic, with apps galore and social media stalking complicating the already thorny business of finding love. This tongue-in-cheek promo for Joel Corry's 'BED' takes things to their logical, humorous conclusion, as it reveals Perfect Partner - a service which creates dates tailored to client specification.

Corry and featured artist Raye star as robotic partners fresh off the production line, presenting an infomercial and touring the factory where their counterparts are still under construction. Bubbly and colourful production design undercuts the film's uncanny humour nicely, while a chance meeting suggests that perhaps perfection isn't what matters when it comes to romance. Good news for those imperfect humans still looking for love.
