Take the outrageousness of Fritz The Cat, the cuteness of Garfield, add the whip-smart action of Tarantino, put it in a blender and voila! What you get is BAD CAT: a crudely funny, action-packed animated motion picture for adults, which is destined to become a cult classic.

In a sleazy downtown area of Istanbul, Rifki the Seagull and Riza the Rat are preparing for the mother of all parties hosted by Shero, a hot-blooded, sex-crazed alley-cat. Their night of booze, babes and BBQ is thrown into chaos, however, following the unexpected arrival of Shero’s illegitimate, but ever-so-loveable son Taco, along with the accidental death of a sweet, innocent housebound feline who was the object of Shero’s affection.

With the dead cat’s owner hell-bent on avenging her death, Shero must face being a father, defeat the crazed lunatic and still leave time to fall in love before his nine lives become none.

Firebird / La Peri

laperi_prv

Inspired by Walt Disney’s Fantasia, “La Péri” is a semi-interactive experience based on classical music and a ballet performance captured with mocap and exclusively made for roomscale VR (like HTC’s Vive). It features a lot of interaction based on the controllers to be able to play and feel presence with the character.
On the stage, you play the role of Iskender, a prince seeking the “flower of immortality”. This precious artifact is guarded/kept by la Péri, an ancient spirit. As you gradually fit into your role and try to take possession of the flower, the spirit appears. Alternately frightened and mischievous, it evolves in different living forms that increase in complexity until it sketches a graceful, feminine silhouette….
