Shooting Stock Cinematography? Rocky Mountain Rotors Can Help!

April 1, 2016 Leave your thoughts

We’ve all seen those movies that are set in the Rocky Mountains, and those shots that span the mountains and other Western scenery. Not only are these sights familiar in movies, but television shows use scenery like that as well. Many television sets and movies use stock cinematography, and Rocky Mountain Rotors is a perfect pick when filming stock cinematography!

The following are a few reasons to choose Rocky Mountain Rotors when shooting aerial cinematography in Montana:


The most important thing you’ll need when it comes to shooting stock cinematography is experience. You’ll want to work with a company who has experience shooting aerial cinematography specifically. Rocky Mountain Rotors charters helicopter flights throughout Montana, Wyoming and Idaho. We are able to adjust your flight however you’d like to film it, whether you want to film the path to a popular destination or you’re looking for the most beautiful aerial scenery in the area.

We’ve done many projects for both television and movies, and have a depth of experience in working with film crews. Some of the projects we have done include Discovery Channel’s “Man vs. Wild,” two “Dual Survivor” episodes, History Channel’s “Ice Road Truckers,” as well as the movie Unstoppable and various commercials and documentaries on Yellowstone and other national landmarks.

Beautiful scenery

The scenery that can be seen from aerial flights is fit for any movie that is set in the Western part of the nation, and really any movie that focuses on nature in general. Rocky Mountain Rotors helicopters fly over two famous national parks, Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park, to capture unique sights and scenery.

  • Yellowstone National Park is not what it would be without Old Faithful, especially when it explodes. Imagine seeing it from the sky and watching the eruption build and build! Old Faithful erupts every 91 minutes, so be sure to see it while it’s in action.
  • Another beautiful place in Yellowstone National Park is Hayden Valley, where you’re sure to see lots of wildlife, including bison, elk, ducks, geese, pelicans and maybe even a grizzly bear.
  • Grand Teton National Park is also a great place to experiment with cinematography.
  • Colter Bay lies next to one of the youngest mountain ranges in the Rockies, and there are always people swimming, kayaking and windsurfing on the water.
  • Oxford Bend is also a must-see. It’s one of the most photographed places in the park! Here, you’ll be able to see the reflection of Mount Moran in the Snake River, which is a very famous image. You’ll also see a lot of wildlife here too, including moose and otters as well as black and grizzly bears.
  • Jenny Lake is also worth a visit as well. You’ll see lots of people hiking, but you’ll also see a 180-foot pure-white waterfall called Hidden Falls.

While all of the scenery is striking from the ground, sometimes it’s a greater view and a cooler experience from up above. The mountains themselves are purely beautiful, and are perfect for any movie or television show. The details of the scenery are also great for any purpose.
