Is Humanity Ready For the Kind of Technological Advances in the Trailer for Creative Control?
Creative Control just came onto my radar, I was in a wormhole spiral in internet searches and stumbled onto this interesting trailer. This is seemingly a movie about technology and how we interact with it, but also how it can interact or interfere with our lives.
Immediately a statement stuck with me ‘at any given moment there are a million things vying for our attention’. Obviously this is the world we live in currently with devices spewing out of every limb constantly buzzing or notifying us of any and everything. But what about adapting reality to appear how you want to see it, putting you in control of how the tech works for your life.
It looks like this movie is going to experiment with the concept of a new pair of glasses that are some real time VR type of technology. Filmed in black & white, with clean minimalist settings, this might be a way to try to counter the always fluctuating and overwhelming side that technology can bring into our lives.
Benjamin Dickinson is both the lead actor and director of the film Creative Control which will release March 11 2016. How would you alter your view on life if you had a pair of smart glasses that helped you do it?
