The 2019 remake of Stephen King's "Pet Sematary" stars two different rescue cats that play the character of Church. These cats had never acted before, and it took a lot of work to get them to do what the director wanted on set. We spoke with the animal trainer and animal coordinator for the film, Melissa Millett and Kirk Jarrett, to find out what it takes to train a cat for TV and film.

There should've been video of her entire cat training process. I have no idea what "counter conditioning" is or what "catnip parties in the bathtub" would even begin to look like. I didn't know cats would like wet catnip. I'm even more amazed they found 3 other cats to rescue that looked like the original Church.
@saraloving3171 4 yıl önce
i'm guessing they just put catnip in the bathtub without it being filled w/ water to get the cats used to being in that environment
@margot-robbie 4 yıl önce
I assume counter conditioning is just reversing the process of classical conditioning
@sunkenxship 4 yıl önce
Conditioning is when you take a neutral object, word, etc, and give it a positive or negative association (sit=treat). Counter conditioning is taking something that already has a positive or negative association (cats hate water), and switching it to the opposite using a reward or punishment (cats get treats in water, water becomes positive). Counter conditioning is a slow process as you are potentially trying to reverse something that has a strong positive or negative association in the animal's mind already. So you take it baby steps e.g. like in the video, first was just being in the bathtub, then maybe there's a small amount of water, then a slightly larger volume. The most important thing in counter conditioning is breaking the whole process into steps, and if the animal stops responding the way you want, dial it back to the point where it was working and make the next step even smaller.

The cats in "Stuart Little" were, according to the director's commentary... not actually hit in the face with branches. It was compressed air, and a lot of the CGI was actually used for removing human trainers (up to eight were usually hidden around the set) and bluescreening cats who were really in much more convenient places. Another useful tool: they had a laser pointer that flickered at the same rate, offset, from the camera shutter, so it was always off when the film camera took a picture and didn't show up on film. Essential for getting a cat to look in the place where a CGI mouse would be. Minkoff says that in the very last shot of the film, they left the laser pointer on the windowsill, and you can see Snowball (there were five persians all trained in specific tasks, out of 23 cats in total used for maybe what, eight cats on film?) look at it even after Stuart's been carried away. Having doubles is invaluable for other purposes. Sometimes you strike absolute gold - Disney's "The Cat From Outer Space," the cat was played by Rumpler and Amber, identical brother and sister Abyssinians from the same litter. Not only is the breed famous for fierce intelligence (much easier to train than a Persian), they were actually able to train both cats for all the tasks necessary, and they would swap out one cat for the other throughout the day whenever the one performing got tired, or the one sitting got bored. Tag team.

@callies8907 4 yıl önce
They did explain it. They gave him treats for doing it on his own during training and occasionally brought it out with a snake toy to then give him treats. So by the time he's actually on set, they just have to do a click or sign and he'll hiss. Like this is all blatantly stated in the video?

Cats are insanely smart, they just don't speak the same emotional and physical language that we do. That's why when we compare training them to dogs, it's like comparing a classroom full of native speakers to a classroom full of students with different customs and speak a different language as you. It doesn't mean they are any less smart, it's just another hurdle to get over so we understand one another and see the world from their perspective.

I just watched the video on food in films and was pretty dismayed at how much food waste there was in the name of "realism" - so as a cat lover even to begin with, I was doubly delighted to watch this video soon after, and to hear about things like gently easing the cats into behaviors and environments so they were comfortable and happy, and even that they rescue cats to use in movies! This whole video was heartwarming and I love it!

My cats learned how to sit on command and stay in a few hours with treats and now I just give them the hand sign and they will do it immediately. Cats aren't nearly as untrainable as some people think. My youngest cat knows even more commands and tricks because he is a lot more playful and interested in playing with us humans. He actually never learned how to sit from us, he is 9 months younger than our older boy who could already do these tricks and the younger one just watched his brother do it and did the same. Took him even less time than his brother.
@bobisnotaperson 4 yıl önce
They watch and learn. Smart cats.
Yes, people definitely underestimate cats. They learn quick, as long as you teach it right & use treats that motivate enough. I taught my cats to go on walks with me in nature. They are leash-trained, but mostly walk off-leash, because I taught them to follow me the whole time. I also taught them to lose fear of water, they go into it on their own now & even learned swimming. And a lot of other stuff.

This is so cool!! Next can you show how they trained the dragons in Game of Thrones?? I never understood how they managed to train a dragon to be docile enough to let actors near it. So cool.

My cat is like ridiculously easy to train. I taught her to high five in about a week, and when I call her she’ll run to me faster than even my dog no matter where she is in the house. She doesn’t even need treats to be coaxed all she wants is to be petted and cuddled. Guess she’d probably make a pretty good cat actor lol

Its great to see a video about animal training! This way of training (using only positive reinforcement) is the way to go. In the past a lot of people tried to train animals using punishment or dominiation - but this failed miserably when zoo trainers tried this on water mammals like dolphins or whales - they just couldn't reach them for any sort of punishment as they just swam away. So they tried a different approach and it worked much better. There now even is scientific research backing this all up: animals trained with positive reinforcement are much more reliable than animals trained via punishment/domination, as they learn that this behaviour gains them something and they tend to offer the behaviour with their own free will, instead of trying to avoid punishment (this is the only thing they learn when being trained by punishment in fact).

The cats are agreeing to the roles, by accepting the treats!

All the cats they rescued are absolutely beautiful 😳😳😳
I saw a show in Las Vegas where this guy did a show with his pets. He had to have at least a dozen cats if not more in addition to dogs, geese, and rats. I wonder how you train that many cats.

When I saw Milo and Otis, I was nervous through the whole movie because in the back of my mind, I worried they controlled the animals abusively. When I saw the stock message that said no animals were harmed, it was like a dam burst in relief and I began to cry. My family has never met me forget it!

This is pretty impressive. I've been trying to train my cat to sit and shake hands on command, but he completely ignores me and keeps surfing facebook photos of naked dogs all day. (I think he may have a problem)

I trained my cat how to sit and beg when I was around 9. You hold a treat directly above a cats head, and their natural reaction is to sit and look up at it. You give them the treat for sitting. After they've learned that command, you hold the treat in your hand and my cat gently put her paw up to try and grab it herself. I gave her the treat. Now she knows 2 commands and it was easy enough for me as a kid to teach her myself. (I'm now an adult and my cat still knows those tricks)
