Birds Eye of Big Sky was hired to collect aerial drone videography in Williston, North Dakota for the National Geographic Channel TV show "Underworld, Inc."
We participated in filming
Episode 5 of Season 2, titled "Fracking Hell"
"Fracking technology opened up vast oil deposits in North Dakota. The boom that followed brought with it a crime wave, as hustlers flocked into boomtowns to join the feeding frenzy."
The full episode can be watched for $1.99 through National Geographic TV
by clicking the video above.
Birds Eye was given a lengthy shot list and asked to collect footage of the area and noted landmarks. Miscommunications, a broken cord, and 3 hours of sleep created some challenges, yet we persevered to capture great drone footage. We were happy to see the amount of aerials used.
It was a great opportunity to work with National Geographic Channel!
On this job, our CineStar 8 MK Heavy Lift Octocopter carried a Canon 5D Mark III with a 70-200mm lens.
Canon 5D Mark III and 70-200mm lens was stabilized with our Freefly Systems MoVI M5.
