In The Man from Snowy River, the movie's most famous scene portrays Jim Craig chasing down the mob of brumbies to retrieve the prize colt for his boss.
At about 1:55 into this clip, we are shown the mob of horses from the ground. There are other movies that I have seen shots like this as well involving running horses.
How are scenes like this filmed? It appears that the horses are running directly over the camera. Is there a name for this particular film technique?
