[LISTEN] Meet the creative dad of Instagram sensation 'Owl Kitty'

OwlKitty is the stage name for Lizzy, a two-year-old cat that's taken the internet by a storm - by making an appearance in popular movies and TV shows thanks to her "dad" Thibault Charroppin a.k.a. Tibo.

Tibo is a video editor who uses green screen technology to seamlessly edit OwlKitty into movies scenes taken from Star Wars, The Matrix, Risky Business, John Wick,and even the upcoming Lion King - and the results are hilarious.

I am a video editor and worked on many movies and for many animation studios. A lot of the time it is freelance so that is how I ended up doing Owl Kitty videos.

Thibault Charroppin a.k.a. Tibo - Lizzy AKA 'Owl Kitty's' dad

I adopted Lizzy two years ago from a local shelter and was working from home a great deal and she was always on my lap so I had the idea to add her to movies.
