“I’ve been developing the story and visual “Electromagnetic” for years and I couldn’t be happier to share the film with audiences,” says writer/director Andrew Marks. “I set out to build the film around crafting dynamic performances. The visual effects definitely enhance key moments, but I’m even more thrilled with the surreal tone we achieved on set. It was a wonderful opportunity to work with my brother, David. We’ve long admired each other’s films and collaborating proved to be very successful.”
