Scottish independent production company ‘Auld Reekie Media‘ have been producing a series of short films based on the life and works of indie writer/director Kevin Smith.
They started in 2012 with ‘Babble-On Begins‘; a super-hero themed short based on the podcast Hollywood Babble-On. This was followed in 2013 by the crowd-funded short ‘…Get Greedo‘ based on the life of actor Jason Mewes as well as producing the shorts ‘Gooper’ and ‘Emo Kev’ the same year.
Following the success of these shorts the company has embarked on their debut feature film ‘Shooting Clerks‘ which chronicles the making of Kevin Smith’s debut film ‘Clerks‘.
In the run-up to the films expected release later this year the company has announced the release of the final two shorts in their Kevin-Smith themed series.
