Brainfeeder Films presents
David Firth’s Cream + Umbilical World
hosted by Flying Lotus + David Firth
David Firth is best known as the cult creator of the animated web series Salad Fingers. His short film Cream, tells the story of Dr. Bellifer a scientific genius, who after years of smashing particles together, reveals his revolutionary new product: a cream with the power to fix all of the world’s problems. Firth’s Umbilical World is a dog-stew of animated fancies from the scabland toybox.
Flying Lotus, also known by his birth name Steven Ellison, has made his directorial debut with Royal, which debuted to critical acclaim at the Sundance Next Festival and is unearthed from Los Angeles’s worst quake nightmare.
The music of Flying Lotus – sometimes sun-drenched like a midsummer afternoon in his hometown of Los Angeles, sometimes disturbingly dark and seemingly drawn from the furthest corners of an overfed brain – has won him fans from across the spectrum of modern music: just ask Thom Yorke, Herbie Hancock, Kendrick Lamar and Erykah Badu. Signed to Warp Records – he has released 5 studio albums to date.
He recently formed the independent film finance and production outfit Brainfeeder Films to focus on producing traditional and non-traditional entertainment and commercial content for global audiences. Brainfeeder Films is currently in production on their first feature film KUSO, with musical legend George Clinton, and comedians Byron Bowers and Anders Holm in the cast.
