The stars of a show can be such pigs sometimes, especially when they're about 100lbs and hungry all the time.
When Director David Fishal told me that he'd like to shoot a music video for Gavin Degraw around New York City, I said "sure!" When he told me that the day of the shoot revolved around the availability of the animal wranglers, I said, "interesting."
I've heard working with animals can be tedious or tough, but Buddy the pig brought his A-game and was often a one take wonder.
Note to self...I'm bringing fresh carrots to all my shoots for now on...it seems to get the job done!
