Catsaway Project WOWS at Abu Dhabi Festival

Last year director Fadel AlMehiri at Tent Pictures Productions hired me to develop an idea for his animated feature film concept – the CATSAWAY movie project. He was thrilled with the result:

“My concept for the Catsaway movie is now a perfectly constructed and very comprehensive treatment, with compelling characterizations and appealing plot. This would NEVER have happened without the assistance of Phil. I am very grateful to work with him, and still continue to do so. Thank you for running such a fine business. Great work!”

Catsaway WOWs Kids and Adults Alike in Abu Dhabi

Work on the project this month really started taking shape as Fadel took the Catsaway movie concept on the road to a major festival in Abu Dhabi, UAE. He and his team prepared sculpted action figures of the main characters and built an impressive mock-up of one of the scenes from the story outline I created. They also produced several animation cells depicting other scenes, as well as actual promotional merchandise to showcase the potential the film and its story have to generate a great return for investors. I can’t wait to see how things progress!

The story of the Catsaway movie is that of its hero, Anbar, a charming but spoiled house cat who is thrown out of his home one day and forced to live among the dangerous alley cats and Mafia felines of Abu Dhabi’s underworld. There he becomes an unlikely and reluctant hero who must choose between saving himself and the girl he loves, and a colony of stray cats facing extermination by the local government.

While the Cats Away…

In the meantime, Tent Pictures was so impressed with my work on the Catsaway movie that they now have me working on an outline for another feature film. This time, it’s a road-trip adventure about two bickering Emiratees and a chicken recipe as they chase their dreams through the American southwest, with a killer hot on their heels!
