What's Going On in The Wide Wide World of Comedy Fiends?!

What have we been up to? Short answer: Lots of stuff, dawgs.

For the long answer, read on.

The month of January was spent prepping for our Z-Fest Film Festival short entitled Invest in Yourself. If you're a die-hard Comedy Fiends fan you know that that was actually what one of our previous shorts was entitled. Well, we remade it. YES. We pulled a Hollywood and we revamped it HARD. You can check the original below. 

We added a few bells and whistles to this version, plus we co-produced it with Woolly Rhino Productions to make it extra legit. We'll release it online sometime after March 9th, because that's when it screens at the festival. You can check out a bunch snazzy behind the scenes photos below, but first...

There is one more thing you should know. We're releasing a completely new short in March that relates to St. Patrick's Day. And then in April we're going to release another one which has already been shot. You know what? We're going to be giving you a lot of goods this year so stay tuned and give us a shout whenever to show us that you're there, because we like hearing from you. Stay frosty and enjoy an assload of behind-the-scenes photos below.
