Funque Incorporated is a whimsical period piece that follows a 1976 funk band through the conflicts of their small-time tour sponsored by fast-food chain, Happy Burger.
Funque Incorporated is a 12 minute narrative short shot on super 16 (finished at DVD resolution). It is my most major directorial undertaking since graduating from USC film school.
The film came about from a dream I had. I find it fascinating how real fast food chains blatantly market to children and minorities. And then they pretend they have something to do with physical fitness whenever the Olympics is around so I had a lot of fun putting commercials in the film.
