Creative Control Trailer (2016)

Trailer for Creative Control.

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), he envies the charmed life of his best friend, fashion photographer Wim (Dan Gill) and his entrancing girlfriend Sophie (Alexia Rasmussen) -- 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.

As hinted at in the trailer, Creative Control has a lot of "adult" material littered throughout its running time. So much so you might need to become a member of Mr.Skin to keep up with it all.

The film feels insanely timely considering that the VR headset, Oculus Rift, will be available to the general population starting shortly before the film's theatrical release. The tech seen in the film, however, seems more akin to the Microsoft HoloLens, which is still in development and only allowed for use among approved applicants. While the device is designed for three-dimensional games and applications, nudity and other er, sexual features are sure to follow.

When it comes to the film itself, Creative Control looks so hipster that it comes off dry. And, when it comes to hipster, I already got my fill with Her.
