Gavin Rothery on Bringing AI Thriller Archive to Life

In this episode of Castle Talk, Rooster Teeth Technical Director Tony Salvaggio talks to Writer/Director Gavin Rothery about his soon-to-be-released science fiction thriller Archive. Gavin fills us in on the development of the film, his influences, and what it is like to transition from being an artist and production designer to acting as writer and director on his first feature film.  Talking about his follow-up to the critically- acclaimed "Moon," Gavin gives insight into bringing tight sci-fi films to life. We get a peek at the development and production process of this stunningly taut tale of a man and his singular pursuit to bring back the person he holds most dear.  In the free-flowing conversation, Gavin also discusses how a nine-year project came together, and how calling upon all of one's "plus one" skills becomes vital in creating art.
