Oh Tyrese, we didn’t know you cared so much!
According to EURweb, Tyrese has teamed up with Sprite Films, a Coca-Cola product, to coach eight finalists in their quest to become the next “it” director in Hollywood. Tyrese said he was excited to do anything the company asked because they were the first people to give him the opportunity in front of the camera – we all remember Ty singing on the bus in the Coke commercial, yes? When they presented him the idea of being a mentor, it was just something he couldn’t pass up. For his part, he says:
“The gist of the stuff that I was telling them was, we are as dreamers, perception creators and the world is an empty canvas waiting on new thoughts to think. And however way you get them out, whether it’s through clothes, whether it’s through technology, music, filmmaking, the world is waiting for us to create those new perceptions and concepts.”
But Tyrese was likely believing the words he was telling the finalists because the singer/actor/”rappper” would also like to direct films. He said he just needs a four or five month course so he can understand specific questions because he already pretty much knows what to do and how to do it. Well, nothing wrong with that.
