Final Blog Post of 2016

Originally published at on December 30, 2016.

Let’s be honest. 2016 was a tough year; from the Presidential election with the most disliked candidates in U.S. history to YouTube ditching content reviewers and creators for big money and large corporations. You’re not the only one.

While we all can take time to look back at the good moments to relieve us, it is time to move forward into 2017. We have some awesome ideas for you to consider this coming year and also some announcements.

First off, check out our new Vidme channel if you haven’t yet. We will no longer be posting our newest videos on YouTube, so follow us there for newest happenings around this town. Not only do we have more followers there, but the team at Vidme is very utmost committed to making a creator-friendly and community-oriented website.

We will be participating in two end-of-year videos!

On December 31st, Vidme will be releasing their first annual Vidme Forward. We have plans to take part in the countdown to 2017. Stay tuned on the official Vidme:

That same day, Sandia Mesa Founder and President Sean King will be taking part in Ruben Leija’s “Why I’m Grateful” compilation in which they’ll discuss what they’re grateful for. Stay tuned for that on Ruben Leija’s Vidme channel:

And we’d like to conclude this by wishing you all a wonderful rest of your winter holiday season and have a Happy 2017, from all of us at Sandia Mesa Animation Studios!

QUICK ALERT: Sandia Mesa to participate in #Zuxit Facebook Protest

Originally published at on September 27, 2016.

More lately, controversies have grown over what appears to be random censorship of Facebook posts due to an unfair and unaccountable reporting system. An example of this includes the removal of a livestream from Unicorn Riot, which showed Dakota Access Pipeline protesters getting arrested.

While Facebook continuously claims that its staff reviews the content, the experiences of such pages like that protesting the next three days suggest otherwise.

Thus, we are standing in solidarity with over 100 content producers and page admins, against the “automated censorship” which is often answered by Facebook themselves in such poor manners.

Beginning September 28, 2016, at 12:01am, the Facebook profile and cover photo will be changed to the logo above. During this time, none of our tweets will be re-posted to Facebook. Also, all social media posts will be exclusively on our Twitter account @sandia_mesa_mlh

Likewise, we invite all of our fans to do the same until October 1st, 2016 at 12:01am.

For more information on this protest, visit the Meme Alliance’s Actions page on their website:

See you in October, Facebook!

“The Great Savage” Teaser and Other News

Originally published at on July 8, 2016.

Hi, guys! We have a lot of exciting news this week!

First off, we have a new teaser trailer for the upcoming episode of My Little Hood, “The Great Savage.” The series will premiere on July 29th. Check it out below!

Secondly, we want to recognize Peter Day. He is a hilarious reviewer who reviews terrible websites, in a similar style to film and video game reviewers. In his most recent video, “I Look at Teletubbies,” he gave a shoutout to Sandia Mesa for their efforts in helping him grow his audience. In response, we thank you so much for allowing us the opportunity to recognize you. Check it out below and subscribe to him.

Finally, I want to ask people to help me out this coming week. You can do it in many ways: by sharing our videos (especially the teaser), subscribing to us, following us on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, etc. This is very important to us because we don’t have much money to do advertising. So we’d be really happy if you guys could please help us with our next goal: to have at least 100 or more subscribers by the end of August. That would be so awesome!

Thank you so much!

How is My Little Hood going to work? (and an Announcement)

Originally published at on May 19, 2016.

One day, I hope to grow Sandia Mesa into a successful animation business, and that My Little Hood will become a wonderful memory of living in the early 21st century for older teens and young adults. But I’ve been also trying to figure out how will such a crazy idea of animated ponies satirizing and commenting on current events work?

Well, with going into making the first few episodes, I think that I should keep this in mind:

– Put the story and script first before anything else. (I mean, come on! We don’t want another Batman v. Superman!)

– Work with what I have and if something is too expensive to do, just do it a little differently.

– If I had a choice to be either popular or good (and I only could choose one), I would prefer to be good.

– Continuously watch film reviews, so that I can learn from filmmakers who came before and not make the same mistake again.

– Always be willing to grow or change, especially in the structure. (I mean I could always do the same thing for a long time, but then I would end up like Adam Sandler and just be insulting my audience.)

So, anyways, I’ve been thinking about several ways in which you fans can support my work. And I’m planning on opening up a Patreon account soon for this work. This will help us because it will make us able to pay for software, improving the show, possibly getting a new space (or headquarters), and other costs. So if you want this to happen, I encourage you to think about donating to us on Patreon in the near future. Thank you so much!

Question of the week: Do you think we should have our Patreon paid monthly or per video? Let us know in the comments below!

Don’t forget to subscribe to our YouTube channel, like us on Facebook, and follow us on Instagram and Twitter!

We’re Back!

Originally published at on May 6, 2016.

Hello once again!

We are officially back from hiatus!

I am totally excited about this upcoming premiere of the first episode of My Little Hood! And no, it will not be around political subject due to the backlash I got on a Trump parody back in February. I apologize to all of you who are disappointed, but I hope you can understand that I don’t want to get into any further trouble around this. Plus, I’m getting real sick of what is going on in the election today, and I’m betting that you are, too.

However, it will be a parody of a movie that is well-known on the internet for being really bad and its creator has a bad reputation. I will not mention what movie I’m going to make fun of yet, but I want you to guess what it will be in the comments below.

I’m hoping to put up some new preview images in the next couple of weeks, a couple more announcements pretty soon, and I will soon announce the release date for the first episode.

So stay tuned for that, and we can’t wait!
