Flying Lotus made his directorial debut earlier this year at the Sundance NEXT Fest in Downtown Los Angeles with Royal, a short film serving as interlude to a larger scale feature film he’s currently working on titled Kuso. Now, the renowned producer has announced his new endeavor – a film company, Brainfeeder Films, which Kuso will be released through. He’s teaming up with filmmaker Eddie Alcazar and together they’ll work as a film finance and production outfit focusing on creating “traditional and nontraditional entertainment” as well as commercial content for global audiences. The company will also become a hub for its producing partners and a home 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.”
