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.
footage will serve as a testament to Nebraska's beauty and inviting recreation
which will help our marketing efforts to expand tourism statewide," said Kathy
McKillip, director of the Nebraska Tourism Commission.
footage will provide incredible depth and quality images of our state which
we'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 and
Nebraska Game and Parks collaborated with NET to hire the London-based firm to
acquire this new image collection. NET and its partners expect to utilize this new image collection for use on
websites, documentaries, publications and for live presentations.
