For the past few months, we have been hard at work producing a fancy new series for the awesome company Machinima, and now it’s finally time for the world to know (almost) all about it! It’s called “The Tommy Wi-Show” and it stars Tommy Wiseau, the man who created one of our favorite films of all time, “The Room.” Tommy was also the star of our comedic horror project “The House That Drips Blood on Alex,” which aired on Comedy Central last year.
We are so excited and fortunate to be working with Tommy and an amazing small crew of badasses, and we think that this show is different than anything else we’ve ever done and it’s probably different than anything anyone else has ever done – part talk show, part video game review show, and part retro sci-fi strangeness. The series premieres on Sunday, September 25, and will plop out new episodes every Sunday (and lots of bonus videos in between!).
This page will be constantly updated with cool info about the show, so bookmark it or something…
Look how proud we are of our baby boy, Chris Trew. He went and got himself filmed in a cool movie and tonight it’s having its sold-out premiere in Austin, TX. It’s a remake of Richard Linklater’s groundbreaking film “Slacker,” but this one was shot by 24 different filmmakers and kinda re-imagined a little bit here and there. The scenes are all one-take character studies, essentially, and that is yet another something that Chris Trew excels at, apparently. See for yourself in his leaked scene below!
UPDATE! Chris Trew will NOT be attending the “Slacker 2011″ premiere in Austin tonight and you can watch the below video and see why…
Holy wow! Because of all the awesome support and ultimate back-having, we blasted through the funding limit for our Kickstarter campaign (days before the deadline!) and that means that we will 100% DEFINITELY throw the most kick-ass comedy festival that New Orleans has ever seen this November! Thank you, everyone, for donating and sharing the link with your friends and for believing in what we’re doing, both for local comedy and on a worldwide scale. You can still donate to help make the event even better at the site below:
We have some SUPER-HUGE NEWS to reveal later this week. It’s got to do with the most awesome video project we’ve perhaps ever done and it’s almost ready to see the light of day. All we can say until then is that it’s got lots of stars in it and it’s going to be an ongoing, ridiculous thing and it’s never been done before.
Oh goodness. Where have we Studio 8 boys been for the past year? Few new videos, sparse website updatings, hundreds of self-involved Tweets. Sheesh, do we suck!
Well, ever since Comedy Central aired our short film/TV pilot “The House That Drips Blood on Alex” last October, it’s afforded us with some cool opportunities and we’ve been super busy with some bigger projects that I’m going to briefly talk about here. Some of them are ongoing, some of them are up in the air. And all of them are awesome. Here we go!
The House That Drips Blood on Alex
Whoo boy, this has been one fun ongoing project. It’s definitely our most ambitious thing we’ve ever done and we have high hopes for it. Even though we initially wrote it as a one-off short film, we’ve been treating THTDBOA as a pilot presentation for an anthology horror series, starring Tommy Wiseau and lots of other fun actors from TV, the internet, and some people who just plain don’t belong on camera. So for the past few months, we’ve been pitching the show to lots of companies, and I can’t really say much more about the project except that we have written more episodes, and if you like what we did with the first one, wait until you see what we’ve got cooking for future episodes…
