The Verge - Watch the first trailer for Amazon's sci-fi satire Creative Control -
The film, directed by Benjamin Dickinson, explores the life-changing aspects of a new pair of AR glasses called Augmenta. The glasses, in the words of one hyper-hip executive, aim to put "a magical layer" on top of reality. That magical layer serves, inevitably, to alienate the protagonist from the rest of his life. Creative Control shows his experience for the nightmare that it is, and the fact that the film is shot in black and white only accentuates the anxiety that comes with embracing this new technology.
