Directing Extraction with Sam Hargrave

Sam Hargrave is the director behind the new Netflix original, Extraction, starring Chris Hemsworth.

While Extraction is Sam’s first feature as a director, it’s far from his first experience with action. With credits in Atomic Blonde, Winter Soldier, Civil War, Infinity War, and End Game, Sam has been a part of creating some of the most exciting action of the last 10 years.

In this episode, Sam talks about his path to the director’s chair and how he handles action to create those visceral gut-punch-style action sequences.
