    • Inspirational Women In Hollywood
      As a part of our series about Inspirational Women In Hollywood, I had the distinct pleasure of interviewing Cat Watson.

      Cat Watson has set her focus on building a career as a horror director starting with her short film Dance of the Porcelain Demons that has already won over 20 awards at festivals around the world. She has recently moved to North America from London, UK after completing her Masters Filmmaking degree at The London Film School. Originally from Washington D.C., Cat has made a name for herself working in every department in every part of the entertainment industry from advertising to music video to live event to short and feature film. She has worked with celebrities such as Orlando Bloom and Charlie Sheen, as well as at major events such as the American Music Awards.

    • "DANCE OF THE PORCELAIN DEMONS” BY CAT WATSON a Review
      In the fairy-tale and surreal world of "Dance of the Porcelain Demons”, the wonder of childhood mixes with the nightmares of the most naive fantasy. And yet, in this short and well-constructed horror story, the director is able to never allow the viewer the idea that it’s all a fantasy.
