This is just off the chain. I knew elephants were good painters, but filmmakers? A new BBC series used specially trained elephants to follow a group of tiger cubs and their mother around in a jungle for the duration of their cubhood. I’m not sure if you heard me correctly, they used specially trained elephants. Elephants trained to frame shots and hold their mounted hi-def cameras steady. Replace “frame” with “aim” and “hi-def cameras” with “hi-powered lasers” and you’ve pretty much got this. I don’t know if that’s good or bad, but it sure is awesome.
