Andrew, you are part of our family now and I thank you. Your wolves outperform all others as they love you so. Your connection is what makes it work. The care and kindness you show to your wolves means the world to Annick and I. We all connected from that very first phone call.
I knew I wanted to use real wolves, and I knew I wanted 99% of what I shot to be with real wolves, not CGI wolves… What I did was pick the best wolf trainer in the world and convince him to live in China for several years.
Andrew’s relationship with each wolf garnered respect, as he always acted with both calm and confidence, effectively executing his work with extreme finesse. I can tell you that on certain levels we were witnesses to some great moments of real grace…
When working with Andrew you rarely hear the words ‘not possible’, but when that happens he will find a solution which is far better for the story anyway. He is not just a trainer, he knows the script better than anyone.
Thank you for the outstanding results you were able to achieve with the bears during the Vikings winter shoot. It was seamless and because of that we were able to achieve far greater results than anticipated. So for that, thank you again very much.
Andrew has an instinct that goes way beyond the normality, he has the ability to look through people’s sight and read their mind.
