The producer will debut the film later this month
Flying Lotus has shared a preview of his forthcoming short film ahead of its premiere later this month.
Royal, the producer’s directorial debut, will be shown at Sundance NEXT Fest, a film and music festival which takes place August 12-14 at The Theatre at Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles.
The teaser is the style of a body horror flick, featuring two people screaming, sweating and vomiting.

FlyLo has described the film as “an awkward love story that’s definitely not for the kiddies.”
Following the announcement, the producer revealed that his inspiration for going into directing was a “pretty awesome” GIF of him and Thom Yorke.
Last year, Flying Lotus scored a short film, FUCKKKYOUUU, which premiered at Sundance.
The producer recently courted controversy after speaking out about the treatment of his peers by rappers.
“To producers,” he wrote on Twitter. “When a rapper invites u to the studio and asks u to make beats on the spot. Tell them to pay your fee on the spot, cuz fuck that.”
