FAQ

APA is available and able to help you with pre-production questions and set-up as well as performing post-production work. This may include reading scripts, meeting with trainers, inspecting animal holding facilities and follow-ups for animals after shooting is completed. We want to be a part of your production as complete consultants and are interested and concerned about all aspects of working with animals in film.

Please be aware however, that we do not do partial coverage of animal action or stop-bys in order to keep our disclaimer’s integrity. We must monitor all animal action in order for a disclaimer to be issued. Please contact us with any questions or concerns you may have.
