Atlanta Film Animals is comprised of a group of passionate professionals who came together to offer the Film & TV Industry a fresh new approach to providing exceptionally trained animals for your on screen projects.
Our trainers have worked around the world with all types of animals in some of the most well-loved animal movies of all time. We’ve brought together an incredible team and now we’re offering Atlanta a great local product.
With over 50 years in the film industry, our trainers are experienced in meeting and exceeding our clients goals. All the while ensuring our furry and feathered friends are comfortable and prepared for their time in the spotlight!
Most of the animals that we use come from rescues. Here’s where the story gets great, Atlanta Film Animals actually owns 90% of the animals that we train. That means that those animals have a home and healthcare for life. Our trainers are animal lovers first and animal professionals second, because none of us ever considered a career that didn’t include animals. We encourage you to come see our animals and experience first hand demonstrations of our training principles at our beautiful 68 acre ranch property.
We train animals in the only method that truly brings consistent results! We practice the science of behavioral shaping through positive reinforcement. Our animals are not only trained in basic obedience, but also in an array of behaviors crafted over the last 30 years, that are specifically intrinsic to film performance. Birds, Dogs, Cats, Farm Animals and many more Exotic species are all trained using state of the art techniques resulting in confident and happy animal actors.
