Cat cat Productions History


Casey and Ralph

Cat cat Productions was founded in 2012 by Ralph Blanchard (right) and Casey Poma (left) in Los Angeles in 2012. Whilst going through the same film program together at CSUMB, and working on student productions, Ralph and Casey discovered they were a unique team with similar humor and filmmaking sensibilities. A short web series in 2010 was a successful and fun collaboration. Later, when both would move to Los Angeles to be in the “biz”, Cat cat Productions was officially founded, a team forged, and projects began being produced. Now in their eighth year, Cat cat Productions is still here, and stronger than ever, with a web series and new short film in post-production.

Carly Lujan has helped on nearly every Cat cat production, and was described in her old bio as “the art department of one”. In the world of film, she loves making props and sets, and has done art department duties on many student and professional productions.

Casey and Ralph grew up in the 90’s and miss the days of early internet where websites were lovingly crafted, startlingly unique, and pumped full of meaningful, in-depth content (and a few gifs for good measure).. Cat cat Productions has had a minor presence online for a while, but their original website was never finished, and superficial modern-day social media just isn’t the right fit. Just like a lot of their films are an ode to movies from the past, neocities has allowed them to create the personalized early 2000's website they always dreamed of having for their portfolio. They encourage you to explore through the deep pages, do some reading, and stay as long as you would like.
