A little man lives in a cat who lives in a house. Then, out of the mouse hole in the living room, a classic image from the Tom and Jerry animation set, comes an equally little woman. They will find it hard to meet without scaring the owner of the house, a woman of normal size. An animated comedy in 2D created by hand before, thanks to a million You Tube hits, being noted and produced by the UK Film Council and Screen WM. Laughter guaranteed.

2011 All consuming love (Man in a cat)
"I wanted to make a film that was obscure, funny but also had some deeper meaning that didn't slow the whole thing down. When I was 16 I drew a cut-a-away picture of a frustrated man punching the inside of a cat. It seemed weird enough to work. The film is about dysfunctional outsiders can get drawn into a lot of misunderstood situations. They may not see how they fit in with the normal rules of the world, but there's always a perfect somebody even for an outsider. The love story in this film brings the potentially creepy protagonist into a situation where normal people can actually sympathize with him. The 2D frame by frame pencil drawn animation is geared toward creating nuanced character performances which were key to the personality of the film. Also, nearly everything in the design has a purpose, which brings a strange delicacy to the gags and poo jokes."
