National Geographic Channel and Birds Eye of Big Sky

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.
