Larry Fessenden’s Glass Eye Pix, the fiercely independent film company behind The House of the Devil, The Comedy, Stake Land and “Tales From Beyond the Pale,” has teamed up with Aphasiafilms, the creative brand of director Graham Reznick to launch “The Designer”, a new science fiction project to be released in segments over the course of the next year.
Written and directed by Reznick, “The Designer” will initially be teased out as a series of on-line shorts that will draw the viewer into the mystery of the feature-length narrative. The shorts will then be reconfigured in the feature to reveal the heart of the story.
Graham Reznick has been a member of the Glass Eye Pix stable for nearly a decade, serving as sound designer on all recent projects as well as directing the award winning 3D science fiction short “The Viewer”, the critically praised feature I Can See You, the “Stake Land” short with Danielle Harris, and the “Tales From Beyond the Pale” radio play “The Grandfather,” featuring Angus Scrimm.
““The Designer” follows a journalist searching for the mysteriously missing designer of a massively popular new video game. Told through interviews, investigations, and flashbacks featuring both players of the game and its developers, “The Designer” explores the dark possibilities of the evolving symbiotic relationship between video games and their players.”
