Like a story out of the ordinary?
Then check out, 'The Man Who Was Different', by Mark Currie, published by Catapult Books. It's a simple fable featuring a man unlike any other who proudly presents himself to the world in search of love and acceptance.
A hardback book, 48 pages with black and white illustrations, it highlights an essential truth about human nature. As Mark says, "I think the story has a positive message about the importance of being yourself, whilst also respecting and supporting all who have differences."
As Oscar Wilde once said, “Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken.”
"I would recommend Mark and Catapult Films because of their innovative ideas and creative thinking. Whether the medium is film or print, they produce good ideas and make things happen. Mark is also objective orientated, making sure the client always receives the desired result.”

”Catapult Films successfully captured what makes Peregrine House care home so special, with genuinely warm residents and staff interviews. Everyone who has seen the films has said 'that's where I want to go when I get old!'; quite an accomplishment, I think!”
"The Day Le Tour Came To Otley was a huge moment in the history of our town and the short film captured by Catapult Films has without doubt been a resounding success, surpassing all our expectations. A year on, the DVDs are still in demand, as well as the book of Le Tour photographs, which was also designed by Mark Currie."

“A big thank you to Mark and Catapult Films for creating films that really have brought to life Leeds Care Record. Mark spent the time to understand what we required and put in the leg work to create videos that are having a real impact. It was a pleasure to work with Mark, who was flexible, knowledgeable and delivered an excellent result.”

“Catapult films were a pleasure to work with on a number of projects on set around the UK and down at The Bearhouse in Cornwall. Mark and his team capture the story and imagery effortlessly and have a great way of getting the best out of interviewees and come up with a number of suggestions to capture the story being told. I would HIGHLY recommend this company for your promotional videos.”

”Mark and his team were professional from start to finish. They listened to our needs and worked hard to create exactly what we required. I would recommend Catapult Films to anyone looking for video production."
