"The Pigeon Murders"
National Geographic Television
This was a documentary that first aired on January 9, 2000 on CNBC. You can get more information about the special from the National Geographic site.
For this film I piloted a radio-controlled helicopter
around Central Park and down the streets of New York. The helicopter we used had a small film camera attached to the underside,
and these shots were used to create the scenes from a falcon's point of view as it was flying around
looking for pigeons.
I was required to take off and land from the tops of a buildings,
sidewalks, and side street (in between passing pedestrians), as well as fly around and between buildings and trees.
All while taking direction from the movie director/producer.
