Then the in­tro­duc­tion of video onto your favourite dat­ing apps should be a wel­come re­lief. You can now upload tem­po­rary sto­ries on Bum­ble, share pre-recorded videos on Hinge and, ru­mour has it, Tin­der will soon be get­ting in on the act, too.

Keep the cam­era at eye level, too, and re­mem­ber: it’s most flat­ter­ing to be lit from both sides. “Cloudy days of­fer nat­u­rally dif­fused light­ing, which is ideal for film­ing,” says Her­ing. Lights, cam­era, (fin­gers crossed for) ac­tion.
