Adventures in Purradise

The cats living at Purradise Ranch sanctuary are a talented group of felines. But the pandemic is in full-swing, and they’re bored. So they form a film studio, call it Purradise Productions, and proceed to make a movie.

Since the cats crave adventure, they decide to blend a variety of genres into a format of movie and TV parodies. “Adventures in Purradise” is born!

Team leader Alphonse conducts a Zoom purrduction meeting with his crew members and actors. They’ve just completed their first segment of “Adventures in Purradise,” where he gives accolades to the Director of Furtography and two actors, stating they just may be nominated for an Acatemy Award.

Director Biography - Priscilla Dean

Priscilla has been doing freelance editing for over six years and videography for four.

As the co-owner of the nonprofit cat sanctuary, Purradise Ranch in Phoenix, AZ, since 2011, she discovered a creative outlet with this work: the cats themselves. By filming the cats on greenscreen and incorporating them into short parodies of movies and TV shows, she combined them into a full-length, cat-pun filled feature film titled "Adventures in Purradise," starring ONLY these rescued cats - no humans allowed!
