In the scenes where actors sit in a massive office, and we see some eels in an aquarium in the background, filming took place in a bar. There was a freshwater aquarium tank on the bar stage. Seven fire eels swam around the tank. The eel representative performed water tests prior to placing the eels in the tank and monitored the chemistry of the water throughout the day.

In the scene where the actor holds a pigeon in his hand, and lets it go, the trainer placed a pigeon in actor’s hand. Prior to filming, a monofilament line was secured to the leg of the hero pigeon. Trainer Jason secured the end of the monofilament line to the actor’s shoe so that when the actor released the bird, the bird could not fly away. He handed the pigeon to the actor who gently held the bird in his hands in front of him.
The actor sat on a bench holding the pigeon and gently tossed the pigeon up in the air to release him. The pigeon flew approximately 10ft in the air, then raced downward to the ground. The action went very smoothly. Upon completion, the hero pigeon was taken back to the trainer’s vehicle.

In the scene where the actor talks to a homeless man who has a bearded dragon on his shoulder, prior to filming the trainer carried the Bearded Dragon to set in a small portable kennel. He also spent time instructing the talent playing the “bum” on how to hold and handle the Bearded Dragon. The talent and Bearded Dragon were given time to acclimate to one another. When production was ready to film, the trainer settled the bearded Dragon with the talent and ensured both were comfortable.
