Jason Guerrasio: Zachary, you produced this, and you're friends with the writer-director Brian Shaof.
This is only the second movie we've produced that I've been in.So why make the movie if it can't be seen by the masses?Slate and Quinto, who is also a producer on "Aardvark," sat down with Business Insider in New York City following the world premiere of the movie to talk about what motivates the choices they make in their careers.And it wasn't something that I responded to from that perspective so I let it go. So he sent me the script maybe a few months before we made the movie and asked would I be interested in it.But that then all fell apart and we had a conversation about it from the production standpoint because he was looking for new partners to make it. And I was so thrilled to get the script — it's really beautiful and rich and you connect to it the way you connect to a person. I think the right way to connect to a person you don't understand is to be curious, you know, in an appropriate way that's useful.He plays Oliver Thredson in the first two seasons of FX's American Horror Story.

That was really heartening and I was so grateful.
