Animals on set - what you need to know!

Animals on set - what you need to know!

Posted Wednesday 26 May 2021

Having animals on set brings a whole new dimension to filming. While an animal trainer can take care of their performance, what regulations must you follow to ensure a safe and happy production?

Animal trainer Caroline Girdlestone is one of the best in the business. She’s trained animals for blockbusters such as BabeThe Hobbit trilogy, Pete's Dragon, and Taika Waititi’s Thor: Ragnarok

In this workshop Caroline will explain how she interprets a script and choreographs achievable animal performances, and how she relates the performance to the camera. She’ll talk about some of the challenges - fun and otherwise - that she’s faced on set and how she’s overcome them.

At some point in your career it's likely you’ll have to work with an animal, so make the most of this opportunity to hear from an expert!
