Party over here!

Peeps, let’s be real: summer’s almost over, and even if you’re not in school anymore, there’s a certain feeling that accompanies the end of summer: the doldrums. It’s all over. No more eating ice cream just because “it’s hot;” now you’ll look like the fatty you are. We know it. After all, Twinhead accounts for, like, 85% of Morellis’ business. (No, we can’t “just get a cone.” I’m not sure we can even comprehend that suggestion.)

But with the end of summer also comes end-of-summer parties. And these are the greatest parties of all. And this particular party, our Big Summer Buzz Party, takes that greatness and makes it even GREATER!

This party is to benefit the Atlanta Fringe Festival, another big project of Twinhead’s. We’ve been working hard for over a year now to put Atlanta on the international Fringe circuit and organize a festival dedicated to theatrical and live performing arts. Companies like us benefit greatly from Fringe festivals, and now we can offer this platform to other companies just like us, right here at home.

The festival’s not slated until May 9-13, 2012, but until then, we’re putting together events to raise friends and funds for the Fringe, and the Big Summer Buzz Party is just that! So we’re partnering with MINT Gallery and the Melvin Gallery to bring you an amazing evening of performances, bands, food, and more! FO’ FREE!!

Mind your Manor

Now to tell you what we NEEDED all that money for!

We’ve been giving ourselves carpal tunnel from all the typing we’re doing getting our two web series written. No, it’s not server’s carpal tunnel; we already had that. This is the much more creatively fulfilling carpal tunnel we’re experiencing now. It’s a fine line, but a noticeable distinction. Trust us.

So! The first series we’re going to launch is our 90’s nighttime soap opera, Bad Manor. The pilot is wrapped and edited and just awaiting a completely original score from Twinhead favorite OZLO! It should be up on our YouTube channel soon for your enjoyment!

We’re still working on the Choose Your Adventure web series but are proud that we have THREE episodes, complete with choices, written and ready to go! Now we’re just in preproduction hell of finding perfect costumes for our main characters and the best possible John Wayne Gacy crawlspace we can feasibly film in. It’s gonna blow your mind….

Holy Fundraising, Batman!

Well, it’s been a good minute since we last spoke! So much has happened, I’m going to break it down into individual posts rather than making you read a whole long thing. YOU’RE WELCOME!

So, first things first! Our fundraising campaign with IndieGoGo was amazingly successful! Not only did we meet our $2,600 goal, we EXCEEDED IT! That’s right, we raised $3,015 in 54 days, paying out 51 ridiculous compliments! We’re especially excited because we had TWO people give us a whopping $500! This means our favorite campaign perk needs to be fulfilled: we have to choreograph and film a modern dance interpretation of our gratitude to each donor. Our first video has wrapped shooting and is in the editing process; the other we began shooting yesterday in downtown Atlanta. We even got a honk of approval from a passing car!

We can’t wait to share these videos with you; we’ve had a real blast making them! Here’s some pictures to tide you over until they’re done!
