About us

Find out more about Mouse Chased Cat Productions Ltd and the person behind the vision.

 

 

Mouse Chased Cat Productions is a multi-award winning company set up in 2016 to showcase a series of short films into festivals before launching into its first feature, Shadows' End.

Our first short film, Finding Hope, was filmed in February 2017. After editing was complete, we entered the film into several film festivals from June onwards, attracting high levels of interest from festival officials.

Rather than a 'fixed' team, Mouse Chased Cat Productions Ltd works with a variety of skilled and independent professionals. This enables us to keep creativity at our core, while ensuring that the directors and producers who join our projects are free to to bring in skilled professionals of their choice as well.
 
These are a few of the people we work with from time to time.
