In this supernatural epic action-comedy, a drunken applejack salesman is thrust into the frigid wilderness and has to trap his way out to survive. Will he go from Zero to Hero, become North America’s greatest fur trapper, and defeat HUNDREDS OF BEAVERS?

Reuniting the team that brought you LAKE MICHIGAN MONSTER, HUNDREDS OF BEAVERS stars Ryland Brickson Cole Tews as the intrepid hero of this inventive film, co-written by Tews and Mike Cheslik in his directorial debut.

“If Guy Maddin made a live action Warner Brothers Looney Tunes cartoon with the structure of a video game it would come out something like HUNDREDS OF BEAVERS, an absolutely brilliant and hilarious example of DIY independent filmmaking.” —Laura Clifford, Reeling Reviews

“Part live action, part animation, part guys in animal suits, this is a love letter to silent comedy that embraces the defiant glee of art cinema and distills it into something so thoroughly pure and since that it is surely hard not to fall in love with it.” —Alexandra Heller-Nicholas,

“HUNDREDS OF BEAVERS is the greatest film ever made about anthropomorphic beavers.” —Michelle Kisner, The Movie Sleuth
