Hollywood director Peter Berg, a former Marine who has directed films such as “A Perfect Storm” and the upcoming film “Lone Survivor,” came up with the idea for the video. His brother-in-law, filmmaker David A. Roddenberry, conceived of it after meeting a stray kitten on his way to work one morning in March 2013 at Hollywood’s Bronson Canyon Park. The cat was presumably looking for food from garbage cans near Berg’s office building.
After taking photographs of the animal and its surroundings, they posted them on Facebook along with instructions to find it and give it a home if possible. A few days later they spotted their beloved feline kitty limping toward them — but only after a man hit her with his car while she tried to cross Sunset Blvd., right outside their office doors!
