Creative Control (2015) - Synopsis
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 New Yorkers who've inherited them. David (Benjamin Dickinson) is an overworked advertising executive developing a marketing campaign for a new generation of Augmented Reality glasses. Feeling stuck in his relationship with yoga teacher Juliette (Nora Zehetner, IFC's "Maron"), he envies the charmed life of his best friend 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. 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.
