Writer/Director Mark Raso joins the pod to discuss his latest film, the grounded sci-fi thriller AWAKE, which is his 2nd Netflix Original Movie after his Indie Drama KODACHROME back in 2018. We talk to Mark about the difference between working with Netflix now versus 3 years ago, how this story came to him, his experience writing the script with his brother Joseph, his favorite sci-fi thrillers, how his global catastrophe film compares to our past year in the pandemic, & what is next for him after AWAKE.
