Hell Yes Fest in New Orleans is a go!!!

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.

Be sweet to each other, watch our funny videos, come see shows and learn comedy at our theaters, and watch this website for neat things!

Muah!

Studio 8 Update: June 2011

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…

The Sean Patton Collection

Studio 8 has had the enviable pleasure of working with standup comedian Sean Patton for many years now.

Mean mug.

We’ve shot videos with him, we’ve written TV pilots with him, we’ve even performed onstage with him in various standup, sketch, and improv shows. Hell, next month, Terp is going on tour with Sean Patton and Kyle Kinane (view details of that HERE). Anyway, you may recognize Sean’s name and/or cute face as one of the brightest up-and-coming standup comedy dudes on the planet. I won’t delve into his impressive resume…that’s what his narcissistic website up above is for.

What I do want to talk about is the sad fact that you can’t watch most of the stuff we’ve produced with Sean over the years. Mostly that’s because many of the videos we’ve done with him were sold to websites like Break.com and we can’t use their video code in our website except as simple embeddings within posts. In other words, if you click on “Videos” up on our menu, all of what you see has been uploaded to YouTube and then integrated into the inner workings of our website (we love YouTube!). And since Break won’t allow us to upload the videos they bought from us onto other sites, they have to live forever in their old, shitty non-HD forms on sites like Break.

Until now. I went ahead and uploaded the videos in question to Vimeo and below you will find them embedded in slightly higher quality, along with all the other videos that we’ve put up on YouTube (which are also not really in great HD form because many of the videos weren’t shot in HD).
