At Top Cat Films we take our fun very seriously. If you don’t believe us, check out what really happened behind the scenes during the making of PREY

As talented as we are, we confess that there’s also a lot of talent and input coming from:
In spite of his inexperience (born in 2002), Rocco is the alpha cat. His tendency to act before he thinks has led him into trouble on a number of occasions, including getting trapped in the neighbour’s pool enclosure, getting lost while holidaying in the country and surviving for a week in the wild. As he matures, he is showing more interest in his career and we are now beginning to entrust with him more responsibility. If he applies the same fearless tenacity to his work, we can expect him to take a key management role in Top Cat Films in the future. Recently plagued by a life-threatening illness, he has turned -- like many celebrities such as Gwyneth Paltrow and Sting -- to Reiki and homeopathy and has thankfully turned the corner. Rocco loves film. His favourite movie is Travelling Birds.
FELIX SAMLIN TANYOVAR GALINSKY
Where there’s smoke…there’s Felix. Originally misdiagnosed as autistic when a young kitten, he proved later on that he had a genius I.Q. when he memorized the value if PI to 113,459 digits in his litter box, whilst simultaneously playing Bobby Fisher online on his portable chess Xbox. Still dealing with some emotional issues as a result of being born in the Western Suburbs on April Fools Day 2001, Felix is known as ‘The Enforcer,’ and not shy about putting his paw down when necessary. He is a computer expert, and has been known to download cat porn and chat online clandestinely with Rocco when Bobby or Elizabeth is away from the office. His favourite colour is red MEAT.
OSCAR TAMSIM SHERAZADE GALINSKY
As the eldest and most experienced of the four non-executive directors, it is Oscar who many look up to for advice. Originally from Sydney, Oscar’s speed and Leonine attitude are legendary throughout the industry. A veteran of over a dozen hit feature films including The Towering Catferno, The Talented Mr. Catley, and Fur Actually, Oscar is as comfortable working the crowds at Cannes as he is modelling for Armani, Oscar de la Renta (a cousin) and Prada. Between projects Oscar likes to windsurf, listen to Oasis or The Killers, and was never known to miss an episode of The Sopranos.
(MS) LOUIE HOWATT-JACKMAN B. com
Louie is Rocco’s sister and the youngest director of Top Cat Films. Also, being the only female in this testosterone-filled environment, she often struggles to get her views across. But Louie is a quiet achiever and what she lacks in self confidence she makes up with a prodigious work ethic and attention to detail. She will not allow Elizabeth to spend time on the computer in her absence, and insists on vetting every document and email before it leaves the office. A recognised beauty, she has turned down a number of lead roles (until that benighted and short-lived role in Australia, now subject to legal action – see below). She now prefers to work on the other side of the camera and it is her ambition to direct. Her first project is a remake of the Hitchcock classic The Birds.
