Kanye also came to shed light in a recent interview regarding the 'Runaway' short movie. The film was inspired by films such as Star Wars to the works of Italian director Federico Fellini.
He also stated "I've always wanted to do a long-form [film] for the albums," he explained. "I've always felt like there are so many songs that didn't get visuals that deserved videos...and at the same time, I'm a storyteller, so it was great to have on through line...visually, the things I was impacted by were Star Wars and the juxtaposi[tion] of the Jim Henson-George Lucas in-camera vibe...and a [Federico] Fellini, [Stanley] Kubrick taste-level and Parisian style...I think people are going to [the film]. I think pop culture tries to force-feed a dumbed-down version of everything...people are not as basic as the media tries to make them out to be. No one's that basic."
The 45 minute movie will will accompany the CD.
