Interview: Simon Killer’s Antonio Campos And Brady Corbet

Posted by Perri Nemiroff On April - 4 - 2013 0 Comment

Simon Killer PosterA filmmaking family just had a sexy, twisted, and enigmatic baby. After working together on films like “Martha Marcy May Marlene” and “Two Gates of Sleep,” Antonio Campos, Brady Corbet, Josh Mond, and Sean Durkin re-teamed to bring “Simon Killer” to life.

Corbet stars as Simon, a college graduate who runs off to Paris after ending a long-term relationship. The space is good for Simon at first, but soon the allure of Paris and his goal to start fresh is consumed by his desperation to reconnect with his ex. Having hit rock bottom, Simon winds up in a local strip club, paired with a prostitute. However, rather than just make a quick buck off Simon’s condition, Victoria’s (Mati Diop) compassion kicks in and she lets Simon wedge his way into her life. But, even when brighter days are back on the horizon, Simon’s demons creep in and he runs the risk of devastating all the progress he’s made and more.

With “Simon Killer” due for a theatrical run at the IFC Center in New York City beginning this weekend, Campos and Corbet sat down to discuss their unique collaboration that boasts an incredible amount of overlap and understanding on every front. The two didn’t just write this script with an assist from Diop; Campos swapped spots with “Martha Marcy May Marlene” director, Durkin, so he could direct while Durkin and Mond produced, all while Corbet took his writing credit one step further by continually developing Simon while also keeping a keen eye on the status of the production.

Watch the guys break down their process and more in the video interview below.
