Were making a short stop-motion animated film loosely based on Ernest Thompson Seton's short story "Slum Cat". The story is based in New York and follows an alley cat's journey to find a way to be free again.

I loved the story as a kid, and have always wanted to see it as a stop-motion animation. Rereading the story as an adult I see it has much more depth than I could understand as a child and so I now want to make a film that can be enjoyed by children as well as appreciated by adults, and hope to make something that people can rewatch later in their life and still be delighted.


Although filming actual cats would be a nightmare, the real motivation for using stop-motion animation is to give emerging artists in Christchurch an opportunity to practice and showcase their skills and talents. This is at present a volunteer project, and so our budget for making this is restricted to the funds the volunteers can spare, and the equipment we can borrow. With the money raised through PledgeMe we'll be able to build quality sets, puppets and props to produce something everyone in Christchurch and New Zealand can be proud of.


At present we're in the preproduction phase, building sets, making character models and finalising the storyboard. This project might look small but its a big production with a big team working on it. As well as filmmakers there are qualified modellers, concept artists, animators, architects and engineers working together to make this happen.

If you're keen to see the film, or simply want to support some local artists our PledgeMe goal is only $3000 so every little pledge makes a huge difference.


We're also keen for interested, enthusiastic people to assist with model making, animation, voice acting and music, as well as generally helping out. If you would like to be a part of this project get in
