Benjamin Dickinson's Sci-Fi Satire

Amazon Studios & Magnolia Pictures have unleashed a brand new full-length trailer for their latest production, Creative Control, “a sharp, dark send-up of present-day tech culture,” directed by and starring Benjamin Dickinson.

Also starring Nora Zehetner, Dan Gill, Alexia Rasmussen and Reggie Watts, the film is set in a near future Brooklyn and tells the story of an ad executive and his virtual reality/augmented reality glasses that distort his reality and cause him to begin to lose control of what’s real and what’s fake.

This critically acclaimed black and white comedy premiered at SXSW Film Festival and won the special jury prize for visual excellence last March. Thanks to Amazon, Creative Control will open in select theaters and VOD starting March 11th, 2016.

Check out the new poster and take a look below for the trailer.

Looks interesting enough. However, the country wants to read Martin Shkreli’s articles and listen to Donald Trump, so seems like nobody got time for this thoughtful creative intellectual s..t. Lol.

Benjamin Dickinson's Sci-Fi Satire

The setting is New York, 5 minutes in the future. The glorious technological advances and communication devices of the near future meant to increase connectivity and alleviate boredom are only increasing the anxiety level of the insecure New Yorkers who’ve inherited them. David (writer/director Benjamin Dickinson) is an overworked, tech-addled advertising executive developing a high-profile marketing campaign for a new generation of Augmented Reality glasses. Feeling stuck in his relationship with yoga teacher Juliette (Nora Zehetner, BRICK, IFC’s “Maron”), he envies the charmed life of his best friend, fashion photographer Wim (Dan Gill, THE WEDDING RINGER) and his entrancing girlfriend Sophie (Alexia Rasmussen, CALIFORNIA SOLO) – so he uses the glasses to develop a life-like avatar of her. Unwittingly, fantasy and reality begin to blur. As passions escalate and things get increasingly out of hand, the friends are forced to deal with the impending collision between their public, private and imaginary lives.
