With Alex Garland, writer/director of Ex Machina …
Following on from my last film-based podcast with Bill Plympton to discuss his new animated feature Cheatin’ (which you can still listen to here), this time I’m back with writer/director Alex Garland to talk about his recent sci-fi thriller Ex Machina which is in cinemas now.
Alex & I discuss the many stages his career has gone through, how his father influenced his approach to storytelling, what gaming means to him as both a subject and as an outlet, and what he’ll be working on next.
