Combined company will spearhead a new distribution division.
(PRWEB) June 17, 2010 -- Bigfoot Entertainment, Inc. has agreed to acquire the assets of Ascendant Pictures to
form Bigfoot Ascendant Distribution LLC. The combined company will drive the foreign sales of both
companies’ portfolio of titles through Ascendant Pictures’ existing distribution channels, as well as build new
relationships.

 Founded in March 2002, Ascendant Pictures integrated the creative independence and budget sensibility of Indie
film companies with the production and market savvy of major studios, and quickly became one of Hollywood’s
most promising upstart film companies. Furthermore, Ascendant developed a foreign distribution operation that
distributes its films through output arrangements with major territorial distributors and broadcasters.

 “We are pleased that Ascendant Pictures has become a part of the Bigfoot Entertainment family,” said Chris
Roberts, Founder and Chairman of Ascendent Pictures. “We do believe that this will positively impact the
industry through the consolidated efforts and resources of bringing the combined company’s arsenal of titles to
market.”

 Titles that will now come under Bigfoot Entertainment’s rights under this new arrangement include completed
films such as Who’s Your Caddy? (2007), The Big White (2004), Ask The Dust (2006), Lord of War (2005), and
Lucky Number Slevin (2006), as well as other Ascendant Pictures’ titles in the works.

Key personnel of Ascendant Pictures will remain on board in the newly-formed Bigfoot Ascendant Distribution
LLC to ensure a smooth continuation of operation under the new management team.
