"Topaz and the Bellydancing Kitties"
A screenplay for animated film
Four short film scripts of 20 to 25 minutes come together to make this 90 minute film. Topaz is an American bellydancer in New Orleans, whose identity rests on the fact that her late, great grandfather was a pasha during the Ottoman Empire. Topaz’s cat, “Pasha,” a formerly under appreciated black kitty from rural Louisiana, grows to believe that he is indeed a Pasha from the Ottoman Empire, and that he is entitled to all of the privileges that being a pasha entails.
You can read the play here as it progresses. Here is Part One: "Pasha". the first 25 minutes. More coming soon.
