About Catherine

She says: ‘I actually got the opportunity to do Hoodoo through winning a themed brief pitch open to the whole studio! I wanted to explore creating for new technology and seeing how the film experience could be pushed by creating an immersive short film.Catherine has been with the company for over two years and has worked on TV series such as Miffy, Digby Dragon & Go Jetters.
