Kevin Kerslake’s latest film, As I AM: The Life and Time$ of DJ AM, a documentary on the fallen mashup king, joins a list of iconic core culture films and documentaries he’s directed that include The Electric Daisy Carnival Experience, Bob Marley and the Wailers’ Legend: Remixed, The Ramones: We’re Outta Here! and Nirvana: Live! Tonight! Sold Out!
After cutting his teeth in the field of music videos directing clips for Nirvana, Green Day, R.E.M., STP, the Rolling Stones, Smashing Pumpkins, Rise Against, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and many others, Kerslake launched a move into commercials and client-direct branded content, chiefly in the realms of core culture. He created campaigns for Nike, Puma, Sprite, DC Shoes, Vevo, Coca-Cola, Sony Playstation and Insomniac Events, plus projects involving Doctors Without Borders, Insight Prison Project, Room to Read, the Red Hot Organization, Homeboy Industries, and Amnesty International.
In the world of traditional film and television, Kerslake has sold original screenplays to Ed Pressman, Warner Bros., Sony Pictures, Suretone and A Band Apart. He directed two episodes, including the pilot, for Dean Devlin and Roland Emmerich’s sci-fi series The Visitor, along with Fallen, a four-hour miniseries for ABC Family starring Paul Wesley and Bryan Cranston.
Kerslake’s next project is a modern adaptation of The Wizard of Oz for Warner Bros.
