The Nightingale is proud to present THE EYESLICER, an independent variety TV series co-created by Dan Schoenbrun and Vanessa McDonnell. The show is a smorgasbord of boundary-pushing short-form work from the festival circuit and beyond, featuring 50+ short film favorites and newly commissioned and created works, combined into hour-long, themed mix tape episodes.
To celebrate the release of the ten-episode, ten-hour first season, co-creator Dan Schoenbrun is touring the country this Fall with “The Eyeslicer Roadshow”, a one-night-only live event featuring robot Q&As, communal milk and cookies, and an episode presented in special ‘Smell-O-Vision’.
The Eyeslicer premiered at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival. It has been hailed as “one of the craziest TV shows you’ll ever see” (Indiewire) and “an insane variety show puree” (Entertainment Weekly). The show features work by David Lowery, Amy Seimetz, the Zellner Brothers, Shaka King, Calvin Reeder, Lauren Wolkstein, Yen Tan, Harrison Atkins, Zia Anger, Frances Bodomo, Nathan Silver, Brian Lonano, Borscht, Celia Rowlson Hall, Patrick Bresnan + Ivete Lucas, Ornana, Leah Shore, Jennifer Reeder, and many, many more.
