Despite being deep in the middle of making Where The Wild Things Are, Jonze found time to shoot a short film, called We Were Once A Fairytale, with the musician and stage-invading figure of controversy.
"We shot this about six months ago," Jonze tells Slash Film.
"And we were in the middle of doing all the visual effects for Where the Wild Things Are. And, you know, that movie was, like, five years and such a long laborious thing, so I’m excited about doing things that are shorter.
"That I can have an idea and just have an idea, have a feeling that I want to try and make something about. And then, just go and do it. And put it out in the world, you know, and make something else.
"So, you know, this was an idea I had that Kanye was up for. And we did the very low budget, sort of, experimental film that, you know, we just did it ourselves."
