Biting Owl

A Seattle production company created to produce 'Crazy Cat Lady' by Carrie Wachob.


Our small cast and large Seattle crew had a blast on the first day of shooting Crazy Cat Lady. We're excited for our second (and last) day of shooting (with cats) on November 15, 2017. Our Crazy Cat Lady will be channeling Ann Margaret's beans and chocolate. Draft of film coming soon.

She previously produced “Daniel” through the Northwest Film Forum, and “What We Want,” currently on the festival circuit, written and directed by Seattle local Craig Downing.

Wendy also likes the challenge of keeping the production plates spinning, then seeing a finished product come together in the end. Voila!
