Big Cat Productions is dedicated to empowering new, diverse and unique filmmakers, whose voices inspire, educate and entertain, Big Cat’s current projects include: ONE DOLLAR, a Paramount+ series directed by Craig Zobel. Additionally, Big Cat is developing an under-wraps film project with Oscar-winner Mahershala Ali as well as a Roe v.

Wow! Danyelle's experienced, collaborative, and selflessly creative approach to her consultation on my feature script revealed multiple avenues for adding depth & emotional stakes to each of my four central character's stories.
