subText is a romantic comedy that centers on Cameron, a young man trying to decode texts from the lab partner he has a secret crush on, with the help of his best friend, Dani. Looking for love has always been challenging, and subText takes a lighthearted but very honest look at how social media has made dating in the digital age even more complicated. Begging the question, has instantaneous communication and public posting of ones most intimate feelings made getting your message across more difficult than ever before?  Join Cameron, Dani, and their friends as they navigate the awkwardness of making a relationship “Facebook Official” and “Instagram Acceptable,” along with capturing the perfect selfie that won’t cause public humiliation, all while searching for that one right person.
