Aerial Filmworks just completed aerials of Great Basin National Park for a new visitor film. After filming a beautiful clearing winter storm in Fall 2011, the aerial crew lucked into an amazing lightning storm in Summer 2012. Rory Banyard of North Shore Productions is the director for the film, and the helicopter was flown by Spike Kinghorn of Classic Helicopters from Salt Lake City.
Great Basin National Park is in Nevada just at the western edge of Utah. The landing zone and hotel are at the Border Motel where there’s always an interesting mix of adventurers, long haul truck drivers, and film crews!
