New documentary will feature Iowa from a drone’s eye view

Des Moines, Iowa -A new documentary will begin airing next week on Iowa Public Television that highlights the many different landscapes and features of Iowa — from a bird’s eye view.

Andrew Batt is the executive producer for the hour-long production called “Iowa Land and Sky.” He says they used drone-mounted cameras to do the filming, while the inspiration for the project was several years in the making.


A wealth of planning was involved in the project to determine which locations were not only going to be filmed but which shots would also make the final production.


He says the initial process involved learning how to use the equipment while also learning the project was at the mercy of Mother Nature. Shooting was often called off because of strong winds, rain and other foul weather.


The documentary will begin airing on IPTV on March 6th at 6:30 P-M.
