Featured Animal Action

One night during a rainstorm, Andrew hears something at the door and upon opening it he finds a wet stray dog. They become friends and the dog is seen lying on the floor, being walked on a leash, etc. For all of these scenes the trainer placed the dog on its mark and cued it with verbal and hand commands. In another scene where Andrew is traveling across the United States to find robots like him, he sees two deer grazing. The deer were placed behind a protective fence and the trainers cued them with verbal commands to get them to look in different directions. Other animal action consists of swans at the park and dogs being walked on leashes in the background at the park.
