Our trainers are seasoned with 25 plus years of experience. Steve Martin, founder-owner of SMWW is a seasoned veteran in the film business for near 45 years. Specializing in Exotics that we OWN, and train. Maintaining an "accident free" record knowledge beyond most, plus an amazing perception of how to set up shots, to get your shots! It takes years of experience to understand what motivates animals to perform from positive guided reward. We hand raise our animals from infants, and take them on sets so they grow up being comfortable on sets, and around crews.
