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 bordeom 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.

“'Creative Control' is a Fresh and Exciting Sci-Fi Cautionary Tale” – Eric Kohn, Indiewire

“A whip-smart comedy… Creative Control has a knowing, caustic wit” – Josh Kupecki, Austin Chronicle

“Well-acted, quietly funny, and with enough meat to keep a thinker satisfied, Creative Control pushes against just being beautiful to look at and manages something more.” – Bill Graham, The Film Stage

“A quirky black comedy that takes place mere minutes in the future, and it proves to be both funny and darkly prophetic.” – Adam Patterson, Film Pulse

“With an ability to make us laugh the whole way through and then force us to think at the very end, Dickinson shows an impressive command of his material and his audience.” – Matt Oakes, Silver Screen Riot
