Image
By: Andrew Bermudez (Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Headquarters; January 16, 2018)      Hot off the press is a brand-new poster! This and some other news is in today's press release!
The New Theatrical Poster for "When Barrels Fly" is Here!      When it was announced that our first six online films are being re-edited for modern audiences, we had also determined internally that all six films will receive new posters. This is especially the case for Johnny Thunder and the Secret of Marco Polo, as that film is being fully remade. Today, we want to share the first of those posters to you. It's for When Barrels Fly, which will be returning next Friday! If you weren't excited before, this poster will hype you up! Most of the design cues come from the all-new time travel sequence in the film, though there are allusions to the original film here. For instance, the tagline remains the same and the THAC 8 logo rests in the upper right-hand corner. That aside, the film is gettin…

Delays in January Projects!

By: Andrew Bermudez (Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Headquarters; January 7, 2018)      Unfortunately, we were not able to participate in THAC XV after all this year. This, with other updates to our January and Spring schedule, are covered in today's press release!
No THAC XV Entry      Unfortunately, due to hectic conditions at the studio, we were not able to participate in this year's THAC contest. There is simply a giant mess at the studio, and almost all work has been halted just to get it cleaned up. In addition, there's still work to be done to get Pharaoh's Quest: The Curse of Amset-Ra done, as well as When Barrels Fly: Special Edition. This meant that we had no time to participate. To compensate for this loss, we plan on participating in BRAWL 2018 this summer, as well as in THAC XVI in January 2019. It's not all bad news today, however.
Next Backstage Showcase Episode Coming January 13!      Due to the aforementioned chaos, the next Backstage Showcase episode has …

Backstage Showcase Hiatus Ending January 6!      After several months of no new episodes, Backstage Showcase will debut its 28th episode this Saturday! The episode will center on Col.

It will dive into the origin of the character, why he was added into the film, and will reveal, for the first time ever, the character art for his re-imagining! Of course, this Saturday is also going to see something else big from us...
Untitled THAC XV Entry is Coming January 7!      We have given the full green light to proceed with this film, which will center on a brand-new character in the cinematic unive…

The Year in Review: 2017

Image
By: Andrew Bermudez (Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Headquarters; December 26, 2017)      We've had an incredible 2017, and to end the year, we're taking a look back at everything that happened this year, including the release of four new films (counting our April Fools' Joke)! Following that, we're also going to take a look at 2018 and beyond! Let's get started!
January The year kicked off with a brand-new film: New Year's Resolution! The film introduced the character of Zac Fernstein (who will later appear in B.I.O. Corps) and shows him overcome his past flaws to make himself a better person. You can watch it right here. January also saw Resolve for Wellness Week (to promote the above film), and the end of the first hiatus for Backstage Showcase. We also launched our first of what would be many polls to see what the fans want to see.
February      While not much in the way of noteworthiness came our way in February, we did surpass the 1,000 subscriber threshold on Yo…

"Pharaoh's Quest: The Curse of Amset-Ra" Delayed into 2018!

Image
By: Andrew Bermudez (Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Headquarters; October 30, 2017)      Today, we have some sad news regarding Pharaoh's Quest: The Curse of Amset-Ra. That and more news for Digital Decade is what's in store for today's news update!
Pharaoh's Quest: The Curse of Amset-Ra Delayed into 2018      Probably the only reason you're reading this post, our upcoming animated film Pharaoh's Quest: The Curse of Amset-Ra has been delayed into 2018. This also means that the second trailer will not be released tomorrow as scheduled. While this is going to disappoint many of you, we do have ambitious plans to make this film look great. Because of that, we want to give ourselves time to really fine-tune the film and make it a film that looks truly great. We've just finished filming the flying mummy attack sequence, which is comprised almost entirely of chroma-keyed elements that will later be composited together, and we want this sequence to be our best flying seq…
