When Barrels Fly is Back!      The first in our series of re-released films, When Barrels Fly has returned with brand-new special effects, all-new animation and voice recordings, and a brand-new score by Dylan Johnson to bring the origin story of Ulysses S. Powell to life! If you want to see the film, the video has been embedded in this press release for your viewing pleasure. The next film that will get a special edition is The Adventures of Legoman, which will return this April. But that's not all for today!

The New Theatrical Poster for "When Barrels Fly" is Here!      When it was announced that our first six online films are being re-edited for modern audiences, we had also determined internally that all six films will receive new posters. This is especially the case for Johnny Thunder and the Secret of Marco Polo, as that film is being fully remade. Today, we want to share the first of those posters to you. It's for When Barrels Fly, which will be returning next Friday! If you weren't excited before, this poster will hype you up! Most of the design cues come from the all-new time travel sequence in the film, though there are allusions to the original film here. For instance, the tagline remains the same and the THAC 8 logo rests in the upper right-hand corner. That aside, the film is gettin…

Delays in January Projects!

By: Andrew Bermudez (Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Headquarters; January 7, 2018)      Unfortunately, we were not able to participate in THAC XV after all this year. This, with other updates to our January and Spring schedule, are covered in today's press release!
No THAC XV Entry      Unfortunately, due to hectic conditions at the studio, we were not able to participate in this year's THAC contest. There is simply a giant mess at the studio, and almost all work has been halted just to get it cleaned up. In addition, there's still work to be done to get Pharaoh's Quest: The Curse of Amset-Ra done, as well as When Barrels Fly: Special Edition. This meant that we had no time to participate. To compensate for this loss, we plan on participating in BRAWL 2018 this summer, as well as in THAC XVI in January 2019. It's not all bad news today, however.
Next Backstage Showcase Episode Coming January 13!      Due to the aforementioned chaos, the next Backstage Showcase episode has …

Backstage Showcase Hiatus Ending January 6!      After several months of no new episodes, Backstage Showcase will debut its 28th episode this Saturday! The episode will center on Col. Michelle Mustard from Johnny Thunder and the Secret of Marco Polo and how the character is going to be changed for the said film's remake! It will dive into the origin of the character, why he was added into the film, and will reveal, for the first time ever, the character art for his re-imagining! Of course, this Saturday is also going to see something else big from us...
Untitled THAC XV Entry is Coming January 7!      We have given the full green light to proceed with this film, which will center on a brand-new character in the cinematic unive…
