Nebraska to be Filmed From the Air for New HD Image Collection


Residents across the state may see a low-flying helicopter in their area in the coming weeks as a company works to gather HD footage of Nebraska's landscapes, monuments, resources and attractions.

Skyworks, the largest aerial HD footage resource in the world, will be filming Nebraska from the air between July 3 and July 10.

The footage will be used in future productions of various state agencies.

"Thisfootage will serve as a testament to Nebraska's beauty and inviting recreationwhich will help our marketing efforts to expand tourism statewide," said KathyMcKillip, director of the Nebraska Tourism Commission.

"Thisfootage will provide incredible depth and quality images of our state whichwe'll all use to inform and educate our citizens," added David Feingold, of NET -- one of the groups that worked to hire Skyworks.

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln, the Nebraska Tourism Commission andNebraska Game and Parks collaborated with NET to hire the London-based firm toacquire this new image collection. NET and its partners expect to utilize this new image collection for use onwebsites, documentaries, publications and for live presentations.
