Literary, Drama & Music Arts
J. T. Arbogast and Kimberly Dilts - Movie Producer
Business Name: Scrappy Cat Productions
Physical Location: Cass, WV and Los Angeles, CA
Art form: Film
How did we become interested: We met in graduate school in Austin, TX, where we were both studying acting. J.T. wrote Angel's Perch as a tribute to Cass, and to his grandmother who loved the town dearly; the decision to make it came from a sense of taking our destiny in our own hands as storytellers.
How long have we been doing it: We've both been acting since high school, but we began our filmmaking journey in 2011.
Self taught/training: We are both M.F.A. trained performers, but self-taught writer/producers.
Professional associations: AEA, SAG-AFTRA
Notable exhibitions: Angel's Perch enjoyed a theatrical tour of over 275 screenings during the summer of 2013 and is currently available on iTunes, Amazon, Vudu, and Hulu.
What do you most enjoy about your work? Storytelling is a way to connect with each other. We spend so much time locked inside our own hopes, fears, and neuroses...storytelling is a beautiful medium for reaching out to each other and creating community, and empathy.
