Long time reader, first time poster here!
I'm looking for some tips on best practice for filming an artist on horseback, learning how to be a cowboy. He may be there for an extended period of time so I need to get fairly good coverage. My production is a network documentary so budget is limited (I am the director, operator and sound recordist). With that in mind, my plan so far is:
Hire a quad bike and ride passenger with primary camera so we can keep up with him. Perhaps let the tyres down a bit to take the bumps out of the ride. We'll be lower than the rider's eyeline but I don't see what else we can use...?
Would love some advice on lipstick cameras to put on the horse for a POV shot and/or a CU of the artist's face as he learns to throw a rope etc.
What do you think?
Any tips gratefully received.
