London’s historic Regent Street Cinema will be hosting the launch of Brainfeeder Films, masterminded by hip hop and jazz fusion producer Steven Ellison, better known as Flying Lotus. Taking place on Wednesday 16th November, the evening will feature a screening of Ellison’s directorial debut ROYAL (which is being extended into a new feature film, Kuso). The night will also feature the world premiere of two films by David Firth, perhaps best known for his animated webseries Salad Fingers as well as working on the video for Flying Lotus’ ‘Ready Err Not’ in 2014.
Firth’s short film CREAM tells the story of a scientific genius, Dr. Bellifer, who unveils a revolutionary new cream that has the power to solve all of the world’s problems. Meanwhile, the feature-length Umbilical World sees broken pieces of a nightmare coming together to form an animated toybox of delights.
Flying Lotus commented: “CREAM represents David’s incredible talent and his ability to continue to amaze audiences with his edgy and envelope-pushing animation. I am looking forward to breaking boundaries with him as we continue to develop and produce animated and live-action content at Brainfeeder Films.”
Tickets for the event are on sale now. Watch the trailer for CREAM below.
