Screenwriter Phil Parker was hired to develop the animated feature film CATSAWAY from a bare-bones idea to a fully formed 30-page treatment for a production company in Abu Dhabi. The producers were so impress with the results they commissioned the animation house Juice to produce a teaser for the film.

The film is now in production.


Catsaway tells the tale of ANBAR, a street cat down on his luck and looking for a home who one day finds a community of cats in need of a hero to help save them from a city government bent on cleaning up the streets of Abud Dhabi. But between them and salvation lies the nefarious members of Abud Dhabi’s underground Cat Mafia. Anbar and his new buddies are between a rock and a hard place and time is running out!
