The CATSAWAY movie – voice auditions, animators and industry interest

Development rockets forward on CATSAWAY movie

Catsaway movie - voice auditions

It was thrilling for this screenwriter to see the award-winning team at Tent Pictures Productions hold their first voice auditions in Abu Dhabi this past weekend for our CATSAWAY movie project, the exciting new animated feature-film I was hired to develop and outline for them. Director Fadel AlMehiri stirred up a lot of interest in the concept after presenting it at a recent festival in the UAE which led to an amazing turnout of talent.

Taking advantage of my experience as a promo producer, Tent Pictures also hired me to write and develop a trailer script for CATSAWAY. Animators in Ireland and the US are set to start production of the trailer this month.

The director’s passionate belief in this project has led him to commission artists to sculpt character models and illustrate scenes from my story outline, and his efforts are already paying off. After seeing these captivating images on social media, industry players in Australia have been sitting up and taking notice. They think CATSAWAY holds great potential for both film and TV, as well as merchandising opportunities, and we couldn’t agree more 🙂

We’d love your help in spreading the word about the CATSAWAY, so please share, Share, SHARE — because sharing is sexy 🙂 Cheers!
