Have You Seen This Cat

Audrey is a young woman, living in Paris in the late 1960’s. She leads a very quiet life, and doesn’t like adventure. But when her cat runs off and she sets out to look for him, the police mistake her for an accomplice of the mysterious villain only known as The Cat. Audrey gets caught up in a crazy adventure and eventually discovers that life can be fun with a little bit of suspense.

In this scene Audrey has to tell her neighbor Charles (on who she has a bit of a crush) that her cat killed his beloved parakeet. Unknown to her two policemen have planted a microphone in her apartment, and to them her casual conversation sounds very suspicious . . .

These boards are based on an assignment from Piet Kroon's story workshop at the 2016 KL!K Amsterdam Animation Festival. We were given an excerpt from a screenplay for a (cancelled) feature film, he worked on as a director. We were asked to rework the scene as if it came from a Spy Film. These boards are based on the sequence that we presented at the workshop.
