This is a short film I wrote, directed, and appeared in, alongside almost every Thai comedian I've had the pleasure to be friends with. Lahu Funnyman premiered at the Hilltribe Film Festival and won one of two awards given for the short film category (the other award was won by Nat, the cameraman for a travel show I co-host!). Lahu Funnyman is in Thai, with some Lahu and English.
It's a story about a tribal person who takes offense at a racial slur by a comedian on TV and thus becomes determined to get right up there on the TV, where he can faithfully represent his culture and make it look good.
Lahu Funnyman stars "Yaka Champion", the stage name for Yaka, from the Lahu hilltribe village on Yafu Mountain in Chiang Rai, Thailand. While on Yafu Mountain Yaka struck me as a fun guy who could be just as fun on film, so I asked him to be in this movie. During the filming of Lahu Funnyman Yaka actually did a number of performances with a comedy group I co-founded, and was really funny even though he'd never been in any kind of staged show before.
This film was produced for the Mirror Art Foundation (an awesome charity, check them out at www.hilltribe**** and www.mirrorartgroup****!)and made possible through a grant from the Rockefeller Foundation. Because the film was for charity many famous comedians were happy to make cameo appearances free of charge. The music for the film is from the Akha hilltribe.
It was great to win an award, but I still wish I had had more time, more funding, and some production assistance. If there's enough interest I'd be more than happy to work with a professional editor to create a new "Director's Cut." It would increase the running time to about 15 minutes and include more cameos by other comedians. So, everyone please let me know what you think. Otherwise I'll be busy working on my current project, a fun travel show for Thailand and SEAsia which you can check out on my metacafe channel.
