GSN PODCAST: Bags of Action - Interview with Gavin Rothery

Geek Syndicate

This is Bags of Action. The podcast devoted to action movies, both old and new, but all of them are awesome! In this episode Pete interviews the writer and director of Archive, Gavin Rothery.    ARCHIVE: 2038. Two and a half years into a three-year research contract, George Almore (Theo James) is on the verge of a breakthrough. Stationed halfway up a snow-capped mountain near Kyoto at a secret facility codenamed ‘The Garden’, he has been working on a model that is a true human-equivalent android. His prototype is almost complete. But this most sensitive phase of his work is also the riskiest. Especially as George has an ulterior motive for his work that must be hidden at all costs: Being re-united with his dead wife, Jules (Stacy Martin).    ARCHIVE RELEASES ON DIGITAL DOWNLOAD 18th JANUARY.   To talk about this episode and any other episode you can visit the Bags of Action Facebook group here - Facebook Group .

Ep231 - Gavin Rothery, Writer-Director ‘Archive’ & Art Department ‘Moon’

Creative Principles

Early in his career, Gavin Rothery’s goal was to have two jobs: one that pays your bills and you that you enjoy. Then, simply transition the one you enjoy into the one that pays your bills. Starting in the Art Department, Rothery worked on games like Grand Theft Auto III, Battalion Wars, and movies like Moon, which starred Sam Rockwell. All of this, of course, led to Rothery writing and directing his first feature. In Archive, Theo James and Rhona Mitra unlock the year 2038. In the film, “George Almore is working on a true human-equivalent AI. His latest prototype is almost ready. This sensitive phase is also the riskiest. Especially as he has a goal that must be hidden at all costs: being reunited with his dead wife.”In this interview, Rothery discusses how he used his skills as a comic artist to move into the game industry and eventually filmmaking, how story relates to visual art, his fascination with Mythbusters, why you should hang on to ideas, and what he learned from Duncan Jones on the set of Moon.
