Nearly 20 years of filming experience

It has nearly been 20 years since the animals if the HORKAI Animal Training Center act in various film productions from all over the world. These projects include photo sessions, natural history documentaries, commercials and award-winning feature films as well.

Unrivalled proficiency

All new commissions mean new challenges for us - but the basic procedure that ensures quality results stays the same. After selecting the best animals for the job we train them for the desired tasks - be it a red deer stag or a house cat. We rehearse all scenes on the set too in order to achieve the best results on the shooting day - with no valuable shooting time wasted.

More than 100 animal actors

In our Center that probably stands alone in Europe more that 100 animals can be found. Wolves in several packs, brown bears and Kamchatkan grizzlies, red deer and wild boars as well as dogs and cats, goats and cows, and several other wild and domesticated animals that you would have never thought to be trained animal actors.

Hundreds of film productions from all over the world

The animals of the HORKAI Animal Training Center acted in way more than a hundred productions from all over the world - and this gives us some self-confidence. The last 20 years have provided unforgettable moments and experiences for us in the film industry - and we are looking forward to the next 20 years!
