WEDNESDAY WANDERLUST: THE GRAND CANYON
By Paul Strubell of Dirt Orcas – 3/15/17
This edition of Wednesday Wanderlust dives to The Grand Canyon. On of the true marvels of our world.
This is the first Grand Canyon Wednesday Wanderlust, but I am sure it will not be the last.
This video is from Ariel Filmworks.
Aerial Filmworks is working with the Grand Canyon National Park to film the national park using the Cineflex V14HD. This amazing gyro-stabilized aerial system uses an integrated Sony CineAlta HDC1500 camera with 42x 9.7mm Fujinon lens.
The Cineflex V14HD was mounted on the nose of a Bell 206B3 Jet Ranger helicopter. We worked closely with the national park to make sure all permissions and permits were in place. Daily updates to local air traffic control and the tour helicopter companies were sent on flight days. Our pilot was specifically approved for the operation by the FAA and Department of Interior. We mapped reference points to the GPS and input sensitive condor nesting areas that we needed to avoid. Natural resource and wildlife managers reviewed our flight plans.
The Aerial Filmworks team believes in doing our part to maintain a carbon neutral planet. Through a partnership with TerraPass, we invest in carbon offsets for every hour of flight time that our Cineflex equipment is on a helicopter.
