Ersatz Cats

2021 ­3:20 minutes ­ Directed by Suzanne Moreau

Ersatz Cats is about humans acting as cats acting as humans acting as cats. Think “Victor/Victoria” fluidity – but cats. Inspired by my three felines’ amusing and perplexing shenanigans, this film is a cross between a cat video and the musical Cats. While the human’s away the cats will play! The ersatz cats are unaware of their human (camera) while doing human stuff until they see them and revert to cat behaviour.

Created for CineVic’s One Take Super 8 Event in 2021.
