Published Aug 08, 2016Early last month, Flying Lotus revealed that he would be making his directorial debut with a new short film titled Royal, which he described as "an awkward love story that's not for the kiddies." Now, he's given viewers a taste of what to expect with a teaser clip.
Only a few seconds in length, the sneak peek is filled with jarring jump cuts and some ominous strings, while the film's title and director credit spelled out in a white liquid. The producer is simply credited as "steve" (short for his birth name Steven Ellison).
As previously reported, Royal will debut as part of Sundance NEXT Fest, set to run from August 12 to 14 at the Theatre at Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles. Watch the teaser in the player below.
