A group of BA students and I are shooting a 16mm music video in January. We really want to get shots moving with a man riding a horse, but I don't want to freak out of hurt the animal. Does anyone know of safe ways of doing this?
Or would it be better to think of creative ways to shoot on small dolly's, using pans well, and really challenging our shooting abilities.
Ideally I want to be close to the horse, have movement, and I do not want to use a longer lens.
Thanks for the help,

Well, now you know why robotic horses are used so much in films for actors closeups.

If you have a trained and tame enough horse, I'm sure you could shoot something from the back of a truck going at about the same speed of the horse.
