Laughing Cat Productions is here to sustainably create bold, intelligent, and entertaining original women-led media content that reaches and inspires a worldwide audience.
We are proudly the first (and so far only) known production company in Canada who has made body diversity and intersectional inclusion an integral part of our casting and hiring processes for EVERY project we undertake.
We’re also currently one of a small handful of globally-minded production companies “working 20 years in the future” – those who acknowledge that equity, diversity, and inclusion go beyond just ethnicity. We use the lens of “intersecional inclusion”… also considering gender, disability, sexuality, economic status, and many other relevant factors that contribute to how an individual is generally perceived, valued and treated, within in our larger society.
We believe that how we see people represented in media is how we learn to respond to them in the real world, and that is a power that must be used for the right reasons.
For actors and other industry professionals who also believe in authentic representation on-screen, we’ve founded two online casting groups:
