Filmmaking

Animals of Montana, Inc. is a full service wildlife-casting agency located near West Yellowstone National Park nestled between three spectacular mountain ranges and several beautiful wilderness areas for convenient on-location filming. Wherever your production takes you, Animals of Montana is equipped and ready to go. With experienced and enthusiastic staff, we pride ourselves on specialized trained behaviors; stalking, snarling, leaping, posing, playing, fighting, running, climbing, sitting, rescuing or any desired behavior. We do not use snares, leashes or permanent enclosures, and you won’t have to chase our animals around. At Animals of Montana you won’t need to write around our animals, they will perform to your script. Our trainers work with our animals daily, training them to perform on command to fit any script. Animals of Montana can arrange to helicopter- using Carisch Helicopters -your crew into the mountains or we are also equipped to travel to your location. Whether you have a large or small production for film making or video, contact us for animal rates.  See below for a complete listing of our film credits and view some clips of the work our animal actors have done!
