“One of the craziest TV shows you’ll ever see. It could revolutionize short film distribution.” -Indiewire
Fresh off its premiere at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival, THE EYESLICER is a new hourlong ‘secret TV show’ from the bizarre minds of Dan Schoenbrun and Vanessa McDonnell (COLLECTIVE:UNCONSCIOUS). Like an Internet-age spiritual successor to MTV’s beloved 120 MINUTES & LIQUID TELEVISION, this ten-episode series aims to create an online safe haven for boundary-pushing, transgressive, proudly weird American filmmaking.
From vérité documentary to amateur computer animation; surreal horror to remix video art; haunted high school yearbooks to Sasquatch birth rituals; time traveling cats to live web streams of your own birth — if it sounds too strange for Netflix, chances are you’ll find it on THE EYESLICER.
