Oscilloscope Laboratories, the distribution company founded by Beastie Boy Adam Yauch, picked up two movies that premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on Friday, Jeff Orlowski's documentary Chasing Ice and the Todd Louiso comedy Hello I Must Be Going.

Orlowski's documentary, which premiered in competition at Sundance, follows photographer James Balog as he works on the Extreme Ice Survey, a photography project that used time-lapse cameras to capture evidence of Earth's melting ice. The television rights were picked up by the National Geographic Channel after its premiere. The doc is also playing at this week's SXSW Film Festival.

Louiso's comedy, picked up earlier on Friday, stars Melanie Lynskey (Win Win) as a 35-year-old divorced woman forced to move home with her parents until she can make ends meet and the 19-year-old she ends up having a relationship with. You can read our review here.
