SXSW 2012: EXTRACTED video interviews – Sasha Roiz, Dominic Bogart, Nir Paniry and Gabriel Cowan

This year’s South by Southwest Film Festival was one of the best we’ve attended so far. So many cool flicks, so many great interviews and red carpet premieres. Leading up to the actual fest, we previewed a few select titles we were most looking forward to. One of those was EXTRACTED, an independent sci-fi movie that we equated to something like INCEPTION only with memories. It stars Sasha Roiz (NBC’s GRIMM) and Dominic Bogart, and is directed by Nir Paniry. I had a chance to sit down with Sasha and Nir, followed by a separate interview session with Dominic and co-writer/producer Gabriel Cowan. Sadly I wasn’t able to see the film before our chat, but I still feel like the boys gave me gold regardless. This is one of those movies like PRIMER you just need to make sure you see. Check out the interviews below, followed by the trailer in case you missed it before. You can find all the latest info on the project HERE

Nir Paniry is an award winning director/writer who began his career in entertainment as a Storyboard artist. Since then, Nir has worked on a number of productions both animated and live-action, while producing his own shorts and writing specs on the side. EXTRACTED will be his first feature.

Thomas Jacobs invents a way to watch people’s memories from the inside. Going against his morals, he accepts an offer to enter a heroin addict’s memories to literally see if he committed a crime. However,a malfunction causes his consciousness to become trapped inside the criminal’s mind. He remains a prisoner in the addict’s memories for more than four years until he discovers the possibility of escape.
