Our Brand-New Content Schedule!

Image
By: Andrew Bermudez (Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Headquarters; August 13, 2017)      After a few days of planning, we have drawn up a new schedule that will not only ensure that we are still able to make content, but also to fit into our quickly-changing lifestyle! Let's get started!
Scaling Back Shows      The first change is going to be reworking the release schedule for Backstage Showcase. While Studio News has a monthly release schedule and Art Demonstration Show episodes are released whenever the potential for a new episode arises, Backstage Showcase is released bi-weekly. That doesn't seem that taxing in creating new episodes, but with all of our on-going projects, that can really strain our schedule. Therefore, we would like to announce that, starting September 1, Backstage Showcase will change to a monthly release schedule.      However, as this change hasn't gone into effect yet, the next episode of Backstage Showcase will be released this Saturday, and it will cover t…

Wiki Mondays Will be Discontinued on August 31! Another Film Delay As Well!

By: Andrew Bermudez (Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Headquarters; August 11, 2017)      If you are a long-time fan of our weekly Wiki Mondays series on our official wiki, we have some sad news for you. This and other news is the subject of today's press release.
Compartmentalized Press Releases      We want our press releases to be as easy to navigate as possible, so starting today, we're sectioning off various parts of each press release with a heading based on that segment's subject. That way, instead of being forced to look at a wall of text, you can look for particular topics that interest you most. Let us know what you think of this change in the comments below.
Wiki Mondays To Be Discontinued      Originally intended as a way to entertain fans during the winter and spring of 2014 while Johnny Thunder and the Wisdom of the Ancients entered the final stages of production, Wiki Mondays eventually became a Mustache Maniacs Film Co. tradition, not only allowing for a rapid expans…

The Title Treatment for "Legends of the Universe" is Here!

Image
By: Andrew Bermudez (Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Headquarters; August 6, 2017)      Not much has come out of today, but we do have something exciting to share! It's the title treatment for the final Project U film - Legends of the Universe!      As you can see, this title treatment draws heavy inspiration from the LEGO Universe title treatment (since Legends of the Universe is based on that game). However, this title gives the look more grit, keeping true to the edgier look for Project U. The logo has been overlaid with scratched stainless steel textures to give the look of worn metal, then was overlaid with a picture of a nebula to create more interesting colors, reflecting the film's eclectic cast of characters. The film has no release date (though it will be far into the future), but this title certainly sets the mood for the grand finale for Project U!      In the meantime, the next Project U film, Pharaoh's Quest: The Curse of Amset-Ra, will be releasing on December 22, …

"Pharaoh's Quest: The Curse of Amset-Ra" Official Movie Poster!

Image
By: Andrew Bermudez (Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Headquarters; July 27, 2017)      As July turns into August, we have an incredible new theatrical poster to share with you! It's the poster for the upcoming film Pharaoh's Quest: the Curse of Amset-Ra, and it's sure to get you hyped!      The poster, staying true to the historical accuracy of the film, is modeled after travel posters from the 1920's, but also puts its own spin on the aesthetic. While those posters typically set the scene at eye-level, this poster looks down from above, creating a sense of wonder and awe, taking cues from picturesque paintings of the 1800's. Front and center, however, is a sense of the film's character and atmosphere. A stained paper texture completes the look. Pharaoh's Quest: the Curse of Amset-Ra will be released on December 22, 2017, with a new trailer coming October 31, 2017.

Custom Thumbnails!

Image
By: Andrew Bermudez (Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Headquarters; July 18, 2017)      Today, we're taking some time to highlight a new change we're making to our YouTube videos: custom thumbnails! Back in January, we introduced custom thumbnails with the show Backstage Showcase, with the intention of expanding this change to our other videos. Now, we've implemented this change for our behind the scenes videos, with all behind the scenes videos now featuring custom thumbnails. Eventually, we're going to add custom thumbnails to all of our videos EXCEPT for unlisted utility videos for the following productions: The Lost Ruby: The Interactive AdventureShady Acres Super SleuthLate for the Soccer Match However, the introduction videos for these productions will have custom thumbnails. These changes are on-going and are expected to be completed Christmas 2018.      However, in regard to this change, we have a new studio policy that will affect ALL of our future online videos. Here …
