“I worked with Doug and Bart on An Unfinished Life. It was such a pleasure to watch them interact—truly inspiring. Doug and his crew were always very organized and prepared. Their awareness and knowledge of the demands of production continually impressed me. We couldn’t have done it without them.”

– Alan Ladd Jr., Producer, Chariots of Fire, Braveheart, An Unfinished Life

 

“In my opinion, Doug and Lynne Seus are the best in the business by far. They deliver what is scripted quickly and efficiently. Whenever I have any animal work, they are always my first call. I greatly admire their dedication to their animals’ health, safety and well being as well as their unflagging efforts to protect the environment.”

– Arne Schmidt, Producer of The Great Outdoors, Stay Tuned, Big Fish

 

“Of all the movie stars I’ve ever worked with, Bart the Bear is as talented, cooperative, and charismatic as the best of them. He takes no time at all in make-up, never wants to stay in his trailer, and does all his own stunts. I can’t wait to work with him again.”

– Ed Zwick – Director, Legends of the Fall
