Our story began in March of 2014, when Cat Around Films came together with the idea of there being a tremendous need for quality content. It is our belief that the play button is your most important tool for conveying key messaging to your community. We work with both growing and established brands to tell their stories through cinematic campaigns, education, training, and events. Our creative film production and content strategies are often used as part of sales and lead-generating initiatives that bring results, no matter how niche or precise the objective may be.
