Mustache Maniacs Film Co. is an amateur film company that presently specializes in animation. It was conceived and is lead by Andrew Bermudez, who directs, animates, writes, and edits most of the film company's content. However, we have recently branched out into other fields, including contests, play sets, music composing, comics, and more. We even have, on occasion, returned to their roots with live action content.
In Mustache Maniacs Film Co.'s content, there is always an attention to detail, storytelling, place-making, and characterization. The wide variety of original characters created for their films, mixed with canon immigrants, shows an understanding of placing unique characters in unique situations and creating convincing interactions between them.

Mustache Maniacs Film Co.'s original product still plays a role in the amateur company to this very day. While many of our early live action films were very poor quality, later examples show a very developed skill with this form of film-making. Now made under the banner of Daniel Bermudez Documentaries, some of our finer examples include Station 9, Worcester Cold Storage Warehouse Fire, and Mercury Rising in Our Oceans.
In recent years, Mustache Maniacs Film Co. has branched out into other content that both better refines our skills at the the art of entertainment and pays a service to our diverse fan base. Starting in 2012, Mustache Maniacs Film Co. started hosting contests with the successful Vacation: Unlimited Animation Contest and the derided Vacation: Unlimited Scrapbook Contest. In 2013, we hosted a game show-style contest titled The Film School Challenge, which gave the winner an acting part in one of our films. We also produced the widely-popular Tales of the Adventurers comic series from 2010 through 2013, interactive games starting in 2011, and started the lie-up of instructions titled Project U-Build Play Set Adventures in 2014. A living art gallery blog, Art of Andrew Bermudez, was founded in 2015.
