Flying Lotus made his directorial debut during this year’s Sundance NEXT Fest in Downtown Los Angeles with Royal, a short that serves as a larger feature film he’s working on called Kuso.
Now, the talented artist has announced the launching of Brainfeeder Films, which Kuso will be released through.
In a partnership with filmmaker Eddie Alcazar, FlyLo’s Brainfeeder Films will be an independent film finance and production outfit, that will focus on producing “traditional and nontraditional entertainment” and commercial content for global audiences. The company will also act as an incubator for its producing partners and a haven for other filmmakers seeking freedom of expression and development.
“Eddie and I started Brainfeeder Films with the intention to produce and support influential and experimental entertainment for film and music fans around the world,” Flying Lotus said in a report from Variety. “I’ve always wanted Brainfeeder to be a home for emerging artists, creative talent, and filmmakers who are looking to work outside the traditional studio and independent distribution systems.”
Kuso will be an experimental film centered around the aftermath stories of survivors of a massive earthquake. The movie is currently casting and will be shot in Los Angeles.
Prior to Kuso Flying Lotus and Alcazar teamed up to produce the Sundance entry FUCKKKYOUUU, which Alcazar directed with a FlyLo-produced soundtrack. The film garnered praise by critics and audiences alike, and was showcased as a World Premiere at Sundance Next Fest 2015; an Official Selection at Sundance 2016; and an Official Selection AFI Fest 2015.
Aside from Kuso Brainfeeder Films will also be the home to projects from filmmakers David Firth (Salad Fingers) and Dominic Hailstone. Firth recently completed the short Cream, which Brainfeeder produced. The film concerns a genius inventor who reveals his latest product: a revolutionary cream that has the power to fix all of the world’s problems.
