Hundreds of Beavers


Get ready for one of the wildest, wackiest movies you’ve seen in your entire life. Jean Kayak brews the most famous apple cider around the Great Lakes, which he supplies to all of the area’s fur trappers. After an accident leaves his brewery destroyed, Kayak is stranded in a frozen wasteland, and forced to learn how to trap fur in order to survive. As Kayak becomes the greatest fur trapper Wisconsin has ever seen, he falls in love with the daughter of the owner of the local Trading Post, and the only way to win her father’s blessing is to capture Hundreds of Beavers (possibly thousands).

This independent film festival sensation is unlike anything else that has ever been made. Part silent film, part live-action Looney Tunes cartoon, and part survival video game, this movie mashes up so many inspirations into one place that it finds something completely new and unique. With a new visual gag coming every few seconds, Hundreds of Beavers has already set up its next joke before you’ve even stopped laughing from the previous one. You could functionally use this film as a part of a workout routine (because you’ll be laughing so hard that your abs will be sore by the end credits). Oh, and have I even mentioned that all of the animals in this are just people wearing gigantic mascot costumes? This movie is truly one of a kind, and you do not want to miss it.

Hundreds of Beavers is a revelation in independent filmmaking. Even fifteen years ago, this movie could NEVER be made, but now, with just a few friends, and a subscription to Adobe After Effects, anyone can make their wildest dreams come true on screen. This film is a testament to the genius that can emerge from the margins of the film industry, and it deserves to be the beginning of a new wave of indie movie madness.”
