Happy New Year, friends!!!

This is going to be the biggest year ever at MENTAL PRODUCTiONS.

But first a little catch up:

On June 7th, 2014, Joey and Eliza Severini had their first child,
Anarchy Cherride Severini.

 

And it didn't take long for her to become part of the act.

Her fun videos can be found at:

After a very successful first season on MyDamnChannel,
we are pleased to be back with an all new amazing season of "HONCHOS".



Season 2 officially began on January 6th

and will be premiering all 9 episodes

Wednesdays at www.TheHONCHOS.com

 

 

At the end of 2015 we officially moved Mental Studios into a bigger space

complete with sound proofed walls, green screen and new audio equipment.

 

 

This year we will be premiering several new series, new episodes of current series,

comedy shorts and finally the world premiere of our feature length film "TONiGHT".

We are so excited to share all we've been working on.
