Dumbworld Video and Film Productions to world premiere the short film, King of Funk as part of the 10X10 Challenge program of the Sacramento Film and Music Festival

Sacramento, California, USA – At the beautiful and historic Crest Theatre, August 16th at 7:30pmDumbworld is proud to present the short film King of Funk.

 

King of Funk is a dark comedy starring Hollywood-bound Joey Sab, as the music superstar Chucky Funk (formerly Charles David Smith).  The year is 1973, and Charles finds a magical ring of funk that promises the owner fame and fortune, but for the owner of the ring—beware—you dig?

 

The film was created (from script to screen) in 10 days as part of the 10X10 Challenge of the Sacramento Film and Music Festival and was shot mostly in Folsom, California.  The 10X10 challenge gives filmmakers a theme (this year it was “rings”), a prop (Dumbworld’s prop was a retro red suitcase) and 10 days to make a film.

 

The film also stars Folsom native Emily Jones as Scarlett and was produced in conjunction with another Folsom native, Laura Chick of Chick Flick Productions.
