Featured Animal Action

In the scene where the main actors are giving chase in a marketplace and we see chickens in the background, smoke was not blown in the direction of the chickens. There was adequate ventilation, trainers out of frame and the stunt men were careful when running by the cages.  Prior to filming the scene the trainer took three chickens and placed them into a wire cage with straw. The cage was placed in front of a camera. They shot the scene and the trainer placed the chickens back into their individual cages after the scene.
