Interview: K. Asher Levin (Slayers)

Hi, it’s great to talk with you. Slayers is such a fun movie. How did this idea manifest?

K. Asher Levin- I’ve been working on the film for a decade. Originally, I was just going to direct it, and then I was going to write it. I cam back on to direct, and we went and shot the movie in 2020. It took a while to get it done because there is a lot of visual stuff in the film. It was pretty complicated to finish the film.

Is it challenging working on all aspects of the film?

K. Asher Levin- I’m pretty blue collar as a director. Once I’m in the directing zone, I’m no longer in the writing zone. When I’m on set, because I’m a writer, and even on films that I don’t write, there is a relative level of improvisation that I have if dialogue doesn’t sound right. We can change it in the room. If we rehearse before and a scene isn’t clicking, we can change it. I think with this movie, all of that was immensely helpful.

How did you get the cast prepared? Thomas Jane is awesome; he’s been so versatile in so many different films. The entire cast did such an incredible job.

K. Asher Levin- Everybody was a little different. I like to cast actors that I’m aware of already. It’s a little easier on set.

What do you want to say to everyone that will be watching Slayers?

K. Asher Levin- I want them to know that this is not intended to be a serious film. It goes really fast and my brain goes really fast. This movie is a real refection of what’s inside my brain. It’s fun, it’s like going to a rock show.

Thank you so much.

K. Asher Levin- Thank you.
