A Dogshow with Cat
The short is a teaser for Cape Town artist, Mike Scott’s series of the same name. It’s set in the South African outback and it’s about the antics of a sophisticated dog and his best friend, a feral, obsessive-compulsive cat. Mike is popular for his animated music videos for South African DJ duo Goldfish.
In the teaser, Catlyn, a videogame fanatic, struggles to tell the difference between the real world and the world within her favourite games. When her friend, Doggy Poggy’s head appears to morph into a football, she keeps fighting the urge to kick it.
A Dogshow with Cat is the only short included from Africa.
