The world loves animals and the entertainment industry realises this, which has lead to a substantial increase in the use of animals in films. They appear in all kinds of films not just those made for the cinema. Animal actors are even hired and used in nature films to help fill in the blanks and capture certain shots which are too difficult to get in the wild. They are also used in promotional films and pop videos.

Animal based films such as Cats and Dogs have been worldwide hits. New digital film techniques make it even easier for animals to be used in films. Their performance can be enhanced or they can be filmed in an easy to control environment and the background can be added later making all kinds of seemingly impossible shots possible.

The Range of Animals in Films Broadens

Years ago it was mostly dogs, horses and chimps that were used to act in films, TV shows and adverts. Now every kind of animal you can think of is used in films this includes mammals, birds, reptiles and in a few cases even insects. You can even hire fish to appear in your film should you want to do so.

It does not matter what type of animal you need you can find and hire them. However it is important to use a good agency that offers not only the range of animals you are after, but can also guarantee that those animals can do what you need them to.

Animals in Films Are Well Treated

Many people worry about the way in which animals in films are treated, and years ago their worries would have been legitimate. There were occasions where animals died whilst working on films, which is why legislation was put in place to protect animals while they are working.

These rules and regulations require that animals in films are rested properly as well as fed and watered at regular intervals. They all have handlers, who are there not only to make sure that the animal performs, but to also look after their welfare.
