Final Pre-Showcase Update: Delays and Other News

By: Andrew Bermudez (Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Headquarters; May 30, 2013)      After long deliberation, the world premiere for New Friends ~ An Environmental Fable is just one day away! With that, there is more news that has been revealed. Let's see what's been going on!      First off, due to unforeseen technical issues, A Bite of MyJobs has been delayed for at least two weeks. While this is in the best interest of the film's quality, this also means that A Bite of MyJobs cannot be considered for The Second Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Fan Choice Awards, unfortunately. Regardless, a finished product should be ready for release sometime this summer.      And with that, there is talk of announcing another large-scale project for 2014 on June 7, the same day that New Friends ~ An Environmental Fable is released online. "We have several ideas in the works for 'Ten Years of Going Crazy!'," said LEGO Studios CEO Mark Matthew. "Some of them, like announced …

What to Expect at the "New Friends" Premiere.

By: Andrew Bermudez (Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Headquarters; May 28, 2013)      After a long wait, it is so hard to believe that the much-hyped premiere of New Friends ~ An Environmental Fable is coming this Friday! If you are attending the event, which is grouped into College of the Canyons' MEA Showcase event, then here are a few things you must know. Arrive Early - Even though the showcase starts at 7:00 PM, it is recommended that you get there anywhere from 6:00 to 6:30 PM. Parking at the school can be a pain at times, so arriving early alleviates some of that stress. Also, early arrivals can enjoy the pre-show potluck and hang out with the other guests. It also increases your chances of getting a good seat in Hasley Theater. Park Close - The campus for College of the Canyons is not very big when compared to other campuses, but it is hilly, so parking in the wrong place can tire you as you head from and to your car. You can see an official map of the campus here to help you cho…

"A Friend of the Police" Debuts, Plus Woes for "A Bite of MyJobs."

By: Andrew Bermudez (Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Headquarters; May 24, 2013)      Just in time for Memorial Day, the all-new LEGO City Undercover and The Adventures of Legoman-inspired film, A Friend of the Police, officially debuted, marking the start of the summer season. "We are so excited to have this film out for Memorial Day," said Mark Matthew, CEO of LEGO Studios. "Considering that it takes the classic Mustache Maniacs Film Co. character Legoman and pairs him up with the highly-popular Chase McCain, we are sure to have a winner on our hands." And that's not to say that the studio only expects a high turnout for viewership. "The critics say it's great," said Seth Masterson, host of The Film School Challenge. "The Nightly News at Nine, who is hosting the 'Police Show Contest,' which this is an entry for, gave the film praise, saying: "Great work, an exceeding excellent entry!" It's not much, but it shows the love t…
