          New Pathways


As Fat Cat Vdo approches our 10 year anniversary, we are looking at new opportunities to be apart of inspiring and meaningful projects.  We are just completing a documentary about a community in the NW and a vision people had for their city and how they made it come true - how, even in hard times, they are still making it come true.
We are branching out!  We are eager to do video or editing projects that engage us in creative ways; that are close to our hearts; AND that tell stories that make a difference.
