Holiday Website Update Brings Reboot of Andrew Bermudez Art!

By: Andrew Bermudez
(Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Headquarters; December 8, 2016)
     During the current holiday season, we'll be conducting a massive website update that will not only make navigating the network easier, but will also revive Andrew Bermudez Art!
     If you are not familiar, Andrew Bermudez Art is the living portfolio of Andrew Bermudez's art. however, the Wordpress-based blog has long since had an error that has restricted us from updating it. Now, after a year of not working properly, Andrew Bermudez Art will be rebooted as a Blogspot blog! Blogspot hosts the press room that you are reading right now, as well as the Vacation: Unlimited travel journal, so we are very familiar with its operations. Because of this move, there are several changes that we will make to our website:
  • The original Andrew Bermudez Art will sunset on January 30, 2017. Links to the original site will be removed by January 1, 2017.
  • Instead of being buttons at the bottom of the home page, each site in our network will soon appear in the website's navigation bar at the top of each page. This will take effect this weekend.
  • All of the posts from the un-linked ART 353A and ART 487E blogs will be duplicated on the new blog, as well as all of the existing posts from the original Andrew Bermudez Art.
In addition to this, pages will be created for all of our upcoming films that don't have them yet, as well as general updating of links, information, and other things around the site. There will be a few other surprises too, so keep an eye out! The changes will be fully implemented by January 30, 2017.

A New Collection of Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Literature Coming in 2017!

By: Andrew Bermudez
(Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Headquarters; November 12, 2016)
     In a surprising bit of news, there's a brand-new book coming in 2017, and it's titled Compendium of Craziness: Literature from Mustache Maniacs Film Co.! That is the short version of the news, but now we're going to get to the more specific details of what the book is about.
     Once upon a time, from 2003 to 2005, Andrew and Daniel Bermudez wrote a bevy of poems, short stories, odes, and more! Most of it was fiction writings, and while our writing skills have far advanced beyond these stories, we still honor these writings as the springboard which has led to where we are now in terms of both storytelling and language skills. Here's an example of one of the odes written by Andrew Bermudez.
To My Brain
By Andrew Bermudez

Oh brain, you make me
gain weight.
Why am I saying this?
No one knows.
This is just a stupid,
pointless ode.

     This, among other writings, will be included in the new book, which is set to debut February next year as part of Year of the Clock (which will now run until December 2017). The book will have several selections from the past, with many of them re-written for modern, and more mature, audiences. These selections will include (but are not limited to):

  • The Carter Caper
  • The Big Easter Egg Hunt
  • Cows Get Revenge
  • Mummy's Curse
  • Pirate Peril!
  • Museum Mystery
However, how they will be re-written could potentially surprise many of you: Many of these stories will officially become canon upon publication! They won't all be declared as such (including the ode featured here), but many of the writings that have entered the official cinematic universe will be marked as such, and to allow this, many of them will have to be drastically revised.
     In addition to all of this, all writings will be separated into specific categories for your reading pleasure. For example, all poems will be grouped into one chapter. And, before this announcement concludes, there is one more matter that must be addressed. In this volume, ONLY writings by Andrew Bermudez will be included. For the time being, there is no permission by Daniel Bermudez to have his writings released online, but if this changes, we'll let you know.

All New Ask Mark Matthew!

By: Andrew Bermudez
(Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Headquarters; November 11, 2016)
     Today we bring you another 'Ask Mark Matthew,' containing 100% new material! Let's get started!

Bart van Oosterhout writes: Wait, was I the only one who noticed Kilroy's sudden change of clothes when Johnny's dad dies?
Mark: No. We caught this continuity error after the release of Johnny Thunder and the Wisdom of the Ancients, which is listed under the mistakes section on this film's Wiki page. That's the trouble of doing re-shoots when the film's script receives major revisions during production.

Bart van Oosterhout writes: When does the next episode [of Backstage Showcase] come out?
Mark: We'll be releasing episode 12 on November 18. We cannot say what it will be about, but what I can say is that the subject matter has never been released publicly before, even though the film that it concerns was released several years ago.

     That's it for today's edition of Ask Mark Matthew! Don't forget that if you have a question, post it where ever we'll be able to see it and respond. Until then, we'll be making movies!

First-Ever Teaser for "Pharaoh's Quest" to Debut at Chroniclers' Convergence 2016!

By: Andrew Bermudez
(Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Headquarters; October 29, 2016)
     Despite some unfortunate circumstances that have clouded the studio this past week, we have some spectacular news: the first-ever teaser for Pharaoh's Quest: The Curse of Amset-Ra will debut at the TTV Channel's own Chroniclers' Convergence 2016! Essentially, Chronicler's Convergence is a single, multi-hour video showcasing trailers for new content coming from the LEGO fan community, with each project having the groundwork in a LEGO theme. This automatically qualifies Pharaoh's Quest: The Curse of Amset-Ra, since it is directly based on LEGO's Pharaoh's Quest theme. If you want more information about the event, watch the announcement video here: (Link to Video). The debut for the actual event is set for Mid-November to early-December, with the stand-alone trailer video debuting the day after the event video goes live. We hope you're excited for this first look at the film's animation, as we'll let you know when the event debuts! Until then, here's a still from the trailer.
