Controls Film

April 20th, 2007 No comments

I played a townsmen in the film Controls (not the Ian Curtis biopic by Anton Corbijn)  written and directed by Matt Conant (also partner of the Project Twenty1 Film Festival & Competition). We shot this in the summer of 2007 in the posh district of Bala Cynwd, PA from 6pm – 12am. The cops later showed up asking for filming permits since we had power generators and lights all over the quiet park drawing attention from the million dollar homes in the area.  There were also tons of mosquitos everywhere. Very nice indeed.

The indie short film is about video game journalist Zara Southard involved in her own video game adventure. A mysterious woman, Naomi Arroyo shows up at her door one day with an unusual request: to help determine the reason for the increasingly aberrant behavior of her husband Richard, an acclaimed game developer.

Naomi hopes that Zara’s insight into his world might reveal clues she overlooked. But as Zara begins to sleuth, Richard disappears. And Zara soon realizes that everyone involved, from Richard’s son Douglas, to his smooth-talking business partner Nick Meyer, exotic co-worker Jenna Tang, and even Naomi herself, has reasons to see that Richard stays missing.

Cast into a web of deceit where everybody’s motives are suspect, Zara soon realizes her own life, as well as Richard’s, is suddenly in tremendous danger. Welcome to the world of “Controls,” a feature-length neo-noir film coming soon from Cinevore Studios.
