Air Sex: The Movie will be released worldwide in early 2015.
September 5th, 2014
We’re almost done editing our Air Sex documentary and now it’s time for the world to get a tiny little taste of what it’s gonna be like. A super rough cut of the film premiered at the Possible Worlds Film Fest in Australia in August 2014, and we’re hoping to release the finished film in early 2015.
Feast your eyes on the below teaser trailer, which includes the first footage ever released from our movie. We’re mega-excited to share this movie with the world.

We’re redesigning our website from the ground up to integrate it with loads of fresh comedic content from our comedy theaters, The New Movement, so bear with us as everything you see gets blown to pieces and rebuilt in epic fashion.
In the meantime, we’re expanding our location in New Orleans into a bigger space that will become a hive of creativity. Below is our Kickstarter campaign for that and you can snag some sweet rewards if you donate to it. And if you can’t donate, feel free to share this with anyone you know who likes art, New Orleans, improv, sketch, stand-up, comedy in general, people, fun, joy, or donating money to people who think about comedy 24 hours a day.
Thanks for all of your support! We’ve got big things in the works and you’re in for some damn treats.

Studio 8’s store just got a little more crowded and cool with 2 brand new fun merchandise items!
First up, it’s our 3rd book – Improv Wins! This is an improv comedy textbook written by Studio 8 founder Chris Trew and his wife Tami Nelson, who also both founded The New Movement, our improv theaters in Austin and New Orleans. It’s a fun, informative read with stories, illustrations, examples, and quizzes to help you become a funnier person on- and off-stage. We even offer it at a discounted rate for TNM students and alumni!
The second item is a new tshirt featuring the popular “Focus Up” catchphrase of indie wrestling manager ChrisTrew.biz! We’ve printed up a limited quantity of these, so get ‘em while they’re piping hot.

The Air Sex World Championships is one of my favorite live shows to be a part of.
For the past few years, I’ve judged it, I’ve watched it, I’ve toured with it all over America.
For some reason, though, I’ve never competed in it. Maybe because I’m too much of a wienie. Or maybe it’s because I’m a writer and that makes me more of a voyeur in life. I like to watch things and then make snarky comments about them to my friends (which is why I make a PERFECT Air Sex judge!).
Have no clue what Air Sex is or what I’m talking about? Check out this nifty little video from our Kickstarter page and then read on.
We all clear now about what Air Sex is? It’s kinda like karaoke, except you pretend to have sex with imaginary people/things. Cool. Read the rest of this entry »
