I’m sad it’s been so long since we’ve made a post on here. We’re still alive and kicking but things slowed down a bit for us with school and everything. Fortunately, that is done for some of us (mainly me) and we are about to jump back into this heavily. The next several months will be a roller coaster ride and you’ll be along with us. We’re working on four films right now and potentially a full-length feature to come next year. And we’ll be getting a website redesign…fresh off the press. That won’t be until next month though. In the meantime, you should check out this casting call for our next film.

Way back in the day I remember getting excited for Transformers. When I was a kid I had Transformers and was in love with them.
