Flying Lotus plans to direct a feature film
Just when I thought Flying Lotus couldn’t possibly get any more creatively monumental I receive this stellar tweet today. It basically informed the public that he’s going to be directing a feature film. Everyone who follows him as rigorously as I do should know he has a love for film. Just recently he directed Erykah Badu's “Gone Baby, Don’t Be Long”, and might I add that it was quite the artistic feat given that he usually presents himself as a musical artist. He’s literally a fountain of creativity and I can’t wait until this project fully sets itself off. I’ve included the Erykah Badu video along with some words that he’s expressed to LA Weekly about this forthcoming project. Check it out.
I’m trying to write the script right now, so I’m working on it. I finally got the idea that I feel is like good enough to represent things I really would like to see in a movie you know. For a while, I was like, “Let’s just make a movie because I wanna make a movie” but this one is like, “I wanna see this shit so I gotta see it through.” It’s too early to say who I’m gonna work with on it but you know I got a lot of really amazing talented filmmakers in my life right now. I’ve just been bouncing my ideas off them trying to build the script. I don’t wanna say too much about it yet.
