CAA Signs Director Eddie Alcazar
EXCLUSIVE: Director Eddie Alcazar has signed with CAA.
Alcazar made his feature film debut with the 2018 sci-fi thriller Perfect from Alcazar’s Brainfeeder Films, a collaboration with music producer Flying Lotus. The project was executive produced by Steven Soderbergh, who will serve in the same role in Alcazar’s second feature Divinity starring Stephen Dorff, Moises Arias, Jason Genao, Karrueche Tran, and Mike O’Hearn.
His stop-motion, short film collaboration with Darren Aronofsky titled The Vandal was recently acquired by New Yorker Studios.
It stars Bill Duke in the role of Harold, a man who undergoes a lobotomy and is suffering from traumatic memory loss as a result. As his memories continue to fade and his search for peace is interrupted, the character becomes desperate.
The Vandal—set in a world not unlike mid-20th century America—also stars Baadja-Lyne Odums, Harry Goaz, Maurice Compte, Thomas Hildreth, and Abbey Lee.
The Albuquerque native created a technique he coined “meta-scope” combining stop motion animation and live-action sequences for The Vandal, which can be seen in full below.
Alcazar continues to be repped by Bard Dorros and Luke Rivett at Anonymous Content and by his attorney is Greg Slewett.
