So by now you've probably heard that we put out a special episode of Theater Mode that released on Christmas Day. It featured Cannibal the Musical, Trey Parker and Matt Stone's first film that would eventually lead to the creation of South Park. If you haven't seen it, I really recommend you watch it. Overall, it's just a fun movie to watch and we thought it deserved a special spot in the show.
Now on to the main course. Theater Mode will be returning on January 19th with our 50th episode.
So far we have shot 3 episodes and will continue shooting in a week or two. The holiday season it typically tough to shoot around, so we have to begin shooting early (as you may see from some of the episodes) and then take a big 4-6 week break for the holidays.
If you haven't heard, we've been shooting Funhaus Theater Mode. It hasne't been fully announced, but Bruce and Geoff have talked about ti publicly. We flew to L.A. a month ago to get the Funhaus team setup, shooting a few episodes, and beginning to help them with Post Production. We do not have a set date yet on when the episodes will premiere, but you can expect it after AH's season. I will admit, shooting with Funhaus was a treat. They are no strangers to the Mystery Science Theater style, especially after doing shows like Demo Disc and Wheel Haus.
That's all I have for now. 2018 is going to be a good year for Theater Mode fans. I'll post another update on the show when we are farther into Achievement Hunter's next season. Feel free to reply with any questions. I'll answer them as best as I can.
Frequently Asked Question:
Q: Why does AHTM have to stop while the Funhaus and CowChop volume air?
A: I see this question a lot on every social media platform, including the site. All three Theater Mode series are being produced and edited by the same group of people- which is myself, Peyton McLeod (Editor), and Justin Young (Graphic Designer). In short, we cannot work on three different shows simultaneously. In the case of when Cow Chop's volume was in Post-Production as well as airing, we were in the process of shooting the Funhaus volume as well as the Achievement Hunter volume.
