The company teamed with View Askew, renowned for the success of Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy and Dogma, to release this picture in both VHS and DVD formats.

‘Drawing Flies’, filmed entirely in black and white, is about a group of friends who lose their way in the woods in pursuit of Bigfoot. Produced by Kevin Smith and co-directed and co-written by Matt Gissing and Malcolm Ingram, the film features Jason Lee (Almost Famous, Enemy of the State, Dogma, Mumford), Jason Mewes (Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma) and Rene Humphries (Fun, Mallrats, French Kiss, Devil in a Blue Dress).
