"People tend to think that wildlife directing is just about parties and drugs," said Juan Sebastian Elcano.

"But that's just part of it."

Working With Animals is a mockumentary on the life of nature documentary filmmaker, Juan Sebastian Elcano.

Inspired by Tarantino, Elcano also doesn't care much for following the rules.

"Yes, I'm a bad boy," he admits.

However, all is not as glamorous and adventurous in the world of wildlife documentaries as it is perceived.

From the difficulties of dealing with diva animals, the tension between couples and the constant waiting around for action, Elcano can sometimes be pushed to the edge.

"I just keep waiting for them. But the things is, you need to be ready... Time waits for no man, neither sea lions."

The film was created by director Marc Reisbig. You can see more from him over here.
