Many, many years ago I got talked in to acting in a documentary for National Geographic where they needed someone to act in some background stock footage. The shot was fairly simple I was to ride a horse, charging towards the camera, along with a few other shots.

So, we get out to the site, I had ridden the horse from the barn for about 5 miles out to the site without a problem. We get all setup, the director says "action", I give him some heal, and the horse locks up tight and refuses to move.

We try it again. same thing. I ride around to loosen the horse up, get him going, the director says "action", and the horse locks up stiff as a board, nearly throwing me.

After about half a dozen tries we realize that the horse is totally traumatized by cameras and movie sets. The ranch we were shooting on was a major production location. There were two major hollywood films being filmed on either side of us just a few miles away, and many others had been filmed at that ranch. the horse had been in a lot of movies. We finally managed to hide the camera, and the director changed to just saying "go" rather than "action", and we were able to get the shot.

Turns out the horse had more movie experience than I did. That stock footage ended up in at least three other movies, I only got paid for one. I should have listened to the horse.

we just shot with a horse on a sand dune... the action was
the horse starts from a block away,
and runs towards the camera. simple to the director.

but we were concerned that the horse would obviously want to do anything but.
the horse's owner was a step ahead,
he hadn't fed her that morning, and she was "in the mood"
so right by the camera,
there was a bale of fresh hay and a stallion.
our hero mare ran perfectly on the first go.

so back to the original question:

anyone on this site have actual production experience and is looking for work?

gracias!

Hi. Well I have degree level qualification in drama and have done a television production course. What does the work entail? Diercting? Camerwork? Scriptwriting? Storyboarding? Special fx? Unfortunately I don't have money for production costs, though.

Sorry, can't help - out of date. Something like the fellow who once repaired typewriters, except in this case, all my tv programs were produced on 3/4 and 1 inch tape, and I directed heavy cameras that rolled on wheels, with cables like spaghetti sprouting from each one. Splicing actually meant having skill with a razor and tape. They saw US broadcast, and are archived in the C.H. Green Library at Stanford, but I imagine the dust on them would make for an interesting archaeological dig :)
