03 - Behind the Camera

Episode summary

Quiet on the set !  Victor the dog is ready.  Standing beside the camera is his trainer Jean Cardinal.  Well-known to Canadian, American and European movie producers, Jean Cardinal is revealed to us through some very touching scenes of his daily life and his relationships with the animals he loves and respects.


For Canadian, American and European film producers, Jean Cardinal is Quebec’s most sought-after animal trainer. He is known equally for his professional ethic, which promotes respect for animals, as the diversity of animals themselves. These include skunks, foxes, bears, deer, a Siberian tiger, raccoons, hares, rats and many others.

The man you never see onscreen has a great deal to tell and show us. His bond with animals defies the imagination, and it’s not an act! For him, the key lies in knowing the individual nature of each wild animal, and in taming each other. How can a raven perch on Nicole Kidman’s shoulder at just the right second, as in The Human Stain? Only Jean Cardinal possesses the secret.
