I am looking for a subject to volunteer themselves to take part in a short, fly-on-the-wall type, documentary.
The subject should be a ‘grass-roots’ eventer, an amateur owner/rider.
I am looking to film/edit/produce a 15-minute schooling-to-competition documentary. I want the film to show a wider audience what it takes for an amateur to get to an ODE.
The film will begin with non-competitive footage and end with a montage of competing at a BE. I want the documentary to show the ‘human’ side of the sport; I intend the film to show eventing to be an approachable sport, which is why I’m aiming for an amateur eventer.
Ideally, the subject should live not too far away from OX28. It is likely that I would need at least three visits to your yard, to capture the necessary background footage. I don’t want to spend hours in the car travelling around the country!
If you are this person, or if you know someone who fits the bill, please drop me a line via the comments box below, and I’ll get back to you to discuss.
I have spoken to the BE press/PR office, they are aware of the project and what I want it to achieve.
I’m not a professional director/producer/film editor, so this would be a little bit untried and experimental, but I do have the technical skills to produce a project like this.
