Our friend Jeremy Rist, aka Funkleberry, a core member of Durty Durham won the “Best Soundtrack” award for the 10 day documentary filmmaking contest, the Bloom Film Challenge. The music that won came from a larger soulful mix, check it out here on Funkleberry’s Soundcloud, called, “Searching.” Especially apropos for this film about DURM’s Runaway Clothes creator, Gabe Eng-Goetz, explaining how he came to found his company.
The short answer, Eng-Goetz decided to do what he loved to do and took the leap.
Funkleberry, a Brandeis graduate and a soccer player in a former life, is doing much the same. Many of his soul sampling beats are not for sale. They can only be given away as the music is copyrighted by the owner. [Don’t get us started on how copyrights support oligarchy in America.]
Check out the short film and the dope soundtrack below.
Listen to the filmmaker Prashanth Kamalakanthan talk about the film here.
