No More Polytechnic Name in Brooklyn; 'Creative Control'; and More Brooklyn Briefs

From The Verge: Amazon has cut a deal to acquire the independently produced Creative Control (above), a dark satire about the tech industry that premiered at SXSW in March. Creative Control tells the story of an advertising executive tasked with selling "Augmenta" wearable glasses. The film is set in an achingly hip corner of Brooklyn, and featuring a cast made up of actual tech executives and future-savvy celebrities . . .
