Cat Fight 4:30 1998

A woman accidentally pulls off the cat’s tail and upsets her boyfriend, who owns the cat.

My first 16mm synchronous sound film! The idea for this film came from the convergence of two things. The first was that I had access to a cat with a detached tail (long story--it involves a kitty injury, an amputation, and a taxidermist), which seemed like a once-in-a-lifetime prop opportunity. The second thing was that I was going through a phase where I was for some reason accidentally breaking a lot of my housemate's stuff. I fixed or replaced everything I broke, but still, it was getting ridiculous. The script proceeded from there.
