Kanye West To Shoot New Short Film In Middle East?
Reports claims that Kanye West has sent out a team to scout locations in the Middle East for a new short film. The New York Observer states that Kanye has sent reps to the Gulf to scout locations for his new short film, which is set to start shooting from March…
A source reports to the paper that members of the rapper’s camp have met with film companies and government officials in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, and Doha Qatar, and will set up a base in the region to prepare an 'authentic' depiction of Middle Eastern culture.
"His reps seemed genuinely enthusiastic about creating a piece which highlights the culture accurately," a souce told the paper. "There's a lot of preconceived notions and stereotypes about Emiratis and Qataris, which Westerners often play up. They discussed how Kanye is looking to bridge the cultural divide and break misconceptions."
This short film will effectively be a follow-up to the 'Runaway' short film that Kanye released in the lead up to 2010's 'My Dark Beautiful Twisted Fantasy' album.
