Producers Guild West Seminar: Working with Animal Actors

Join us on Saturday, February 25th as the PGA & The American Humane Association Present: "Working With Animal Actors."

The American Humane Association’s Film & Television Unit as has been protecting animals in filmed media since 1940 and is the only organization authorized to issue the certification, "No Animals Were Harmed”®. The Film & TV Unit’s focus is to assure the safety and well-being of animal actors during production by working with production personnel and trainers in the pre-production planning stage, by monitoring the animals on set during production, and by enforcing American Humane AssociationGuidelines for the Safe Use of Animals in Filmed Media.

The AHA acts as a professional, objective, credible witness to the actual treatment of animal actors while refraining from addressing a film’s content and depiction of animal treatment. The film/TV industry is vast, and despite advancements in film technology, animals are still at risk of mistreatment, injury and exploitation, especially as states promote the expansion of film locations throughout the United States and its territories and implement cost-saving incentives that sometimes involve rural locations and inexperienced animal suppliers.

In this seminar, American Humane Association staff will explain how they work, their advisory role, the current challenges facing the use of animals in entertainment, and how to earn the "No Animals Were Harmed”®certification for your projects.

Special guests will include animal actors & professional movie animal trainers.

PGA members and non members are welcome to attend this event, but you must RSVP in advance so you can be on the list to be admitted on the studio lot. Photo ID is required.
