All-New Website and Video!

By: Andrew Bermudez (Lego Studios; June 26, 2011)      Summer has kicked into full gear this past weekend, and with it come two new things. The first is a video titled Wonders of Buoyancy Behind the Scenes. Even though the film itself is old news, this new complimentary behind the scenes video gives insight to the filming of the movie, as well as a frightening, but pointless, deleted scene. "I remember when I first saw the scene that is featured in the new video," said producer Peter Simon. "The movie was moving along, then suddenly it literally screeched to a halt just for this one stupid joke. I hated that scene and ordered it removed, since I am the producer."
     The other, and much bigger, thing that was released was the Mustache Maniacs Film Co. website. After a beta test period of one week, the website is now officially live. "Unfortunately, we didn't get any feedback from our fans," said marketing relations head Sam Snead. "Therefore, w…

Studio Update: Filming Forest of Fear and Other News

By: Andrew Bermudez (Lego Studios; June 13, 2011)      With the Summer season already here, it is time for another information-filled update.
     Filming for Forest of Fear officially started last week on the studio's own backlot. Here, the scary laboratory scenes are being filmed. As soon as those are done, the crew will head out to Georgia to continue filming. The film is still scheduled for release October 7th, 2011.
     Also, progress is being made in the development of the new website, coming June 26th. A quiz for the website, "Which one of Lord Sinister's Henchmen are you?," has been published on Quizilla.com. Due to some technical difficulties, the link will not post here, so you will have to search for it at the aforementioned website.
     Unfortunately, because of all this work, the next Tales of The Adventurers had been delayed until after the website debuts. The next one will be the last to appear here. After that, they will appear on the website with …

By: Andrew Bermudez (Lego Studios; June 3, 2011)      Earlier today, when An Afternoon at the Zoo and Space Attack were released, it was mentioned that a look at what's next would be given later. Well, here it is, in our 100th press release. "Just like we did with today's two releases, we want to give fans plenty of insight into the projects that they can't wait to see," said Lego Studios CEO Mark Matthew. Now, after seeing Nana save the world and chimpanzees free themselves from their cage, it's time to look at what's coming in Mustache Maniacs Film Co.'s future (all adhering to the new policy announced this morning, of course).

By: Andrew Bermudez (Lego Studios; June 3, 2011)      If you're not at the Disneyland Resort today to attend the grand openings of Star Tours: The Adventures Continue and The Little Mermaid~Ariel's Undersea Adventure, then there are new films to find on our YouTube channel! Both An Afternoon at the Zoo and Space Attack are now available for viewing. Along with the release came the poster for An Afternoon at the Zoo. If you want, you can right click the poster and click "Save Picture As" to save it to your computer.
     Also, an announcement policy has been put into effect immediately. The new policy states that a potential project cannot be announced until the project has been approved. "We've always had this problem of announcing films long before they're ready to film," said Mark Matthew, Lego Studios CEO. "We've had several projects, like Ghost Pictures, Black Friday, and Freddy and Joey - the Duck and the Strawberries, where we all ge…

By: Andrew Bermudez (Lego Studios; June 1, 2011)      Today is the second day in this promotional event spanning an entire week! Today, we will present some stills from the film Space Attack! Coming this Friday, June 3rd, the film features space invaders, UFOs and a karate chopping grandma named Nana! The character of Nana is actually from another short cartoon where she beats up a crook who steals her purse. Until Space Attack comes out, here are some images from the film.



     "We have high confidence that this film will be a winner," said Steve Brocko, head of the studio's traditional animation department. "It is a simple, yet fast-paced film. Quick, yet funny and above all contains a sense of randomness found in many videos online, yet the story is there." On Friday, the promotional week will end with not only the releases of Space Attack and An Afternoon at the Zoo, but also a first look at the Mustache Maniacs Film Co. website, as well as first-ever look…
