Image
By: Andrew Bermudez (Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Headquarters; November 3, 2017)      Today, we're bringing you an all-new, re-tooled Ask Mark Matthew! We're changing up the formatting to not only show where each comment originated, we're also going to be responding to more general thoughts and comments! In the past, we would only respond to questions formatted as such, but no more! We want to address your concerns, no matter what they may be, so this change we feel is for the better! And, as always, the content is 100% new! Let's get started!

"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…

"When Barrels Fly: Special Edition" is Coming in January!

Image
By: Andrew Bermudez (Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Headquarters; October 13, 2017)      If you don't know already, Digital Decade is coming in 2018 to celebrate the tenth anniversary of our online network, and we're celebrating with new films and special editions of classic films! Read on to find out how this celebration will begin!
When Barrels Fly Returns as an All-New Special Edition!      When When Barrels Fly debuted at the end of 2010 as part of THAC 8, we had no idea that Ulysses S. Powell would become such an important character in our cinematic universe. However, this short and popular film has not (visually, at least) held up against films such as Clone and Alpha Team: Mission Deep Jungle. Therefore, we are pleased to unveil details on how this film will become the first of six films that will be remastered for the modern day!      Naturally, the main scene that is going to be rebuilt from the ground up is Ulysses travelling through time. "With today's technology,…

(Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Headquarters; September 30, 2017)      Today, we're bringing you another Ask Mark Matthew, containing 100% new material! Let's get started!
bernardo ensoli writes: when will [A Future in the Past be] coming out
Mark: While we want to have this film released during our upcoming "Digital Decade" celebration (it will run from January 2018 to September 2019), we do not have a specific release time for this film at the moment.

Bart van Oosterhout writes: Are you aware that the red white and blue banner on your website looks like the Dutch flag?
Mark: Thanks for pointing that out! We actually didn't want the red there, but it was part of the initial site template. We are looking into removing the red in the future, probably during an upcoming update for the impending release of the second trailer for Pharaoh's Quest: The Quest for Amset-Ra.

     That's it for today's edition of Ask Mark Matthew! Don't forget tha…

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…
