Fundraising for the cats at Battersea Dogs & Cats Home
Similar to how this notorious meme organically started trending, this exhibition started off as just a ‘funny idea’. And before I knew it, my inbox was swamped with artists all wanting to get involved. We now have 45 people exhibiting, which is absolutely astonishing!
I am one of many who have owned adopted cats – and it is horrifying to think how many homeless cats there are in London, let alone globally.
Battersea Dogs & Cats Home is a charity that aims to never turn away a dog or cat in need of their help. They reunite lost dogs and cats with their owners; when they can’t do this, they care for them until new homes can be found for them; and they educate the public about responsible pet ownership.
Since being established in 1860 the animal rescue organisation has cared for over three million animals. Today, with 150 years of experience behind it, the Home is one of the UK’s most famous and longest-serving charities, and is proud to be London’s leading animal rehoming centre.
LOLCat Teh Documentary – Where art meets the internet
In order to create the LOLCAT film, we wanted to approach the piece in a style consistent with our own style, and unique to the genre. Most exhibition pieces are approached with an event videography style, whereas Other Finger Films want to tell stories; our passion is stories, so we treated the piece as a documentary, as a story of the people behind the event. The approach was to look at the power of self-belief, positivity and social media, so a story could be created and told.
