The first trailer of UAE-made animation 'Catsaway' has arrived
We at ShortList love a good cartoon. Maybe it's because it reminds us of our youth or because they test the boundaries of creativity and reality. Either way, we're fans – massive fans.
So, when the first trailer of Catsaway dropped yesterday, we naturally got a bit over excited.
Not just because it's an animation but because the film is being directed by the nation's very own Fadel Saeed AlMuhairi – the mastermind behind 2014's hit-film Abood Kandaishan.
The film follows a group of cats who trying to make their home in Abu Dhabi during a time of rapid change and development, something many of us living in the UAE can relate to.
The film utilises traditional hand drawings as opposed to computer generated images, which can be seen in the trailer below...
The film that is set to premiere later this year is being produced by Tent Pictures Productions in association with Juice Studios in Poland and, is being created in Abu Dhabi's media zone, twofour54.
