Abstract
Katura and the Cat is an original fairytale by JP Somersaulter and Lillian Somersaulter Moats. In the film, Katura receives a mysterious key from her grandmother, who instructs her to go across the forest to attend a Halloween ball at the castle. Along the way, Katura encounters witches and ghouls, a missing prince and a shapeshifting cat. Illustrated with high-contrast imagery, silhouetted forestscapes and a black, white, red and blue color scheme, Katura and the Cat is a Halloween-inspired fairytale that is visually reminiscent of a graphic novel.
