    Default I Need a piece of video footage

    I am in need of a 10 - 20 second piece of footage. The POV is the view looking directly down at the ground from an airplane...not out a window....but directly down, as if shot from a camera mounted under the plane. I'm not too particular of where, or how high, as long as it shows scenery moving below. Resolution at least 720x480. The ideal footage would be something shot from either a hot-air balloon or while paragliding.

    If anyone knows of such available video, please steer me in that direction.
    Thank you

    Would Google Earth be any good for you? I know the resolution is not so good but if you can find what your looking for it could be a last resort.

    That is an interesting thought. I'll play around with that idea. Thanks

    Wow! Believe it or not, your idea worked great. I was able to get the exact location I needed, height, and look-down angle. I did some color correction and sharpening, keyed in some clouds from another clip, and the composite is exactly what I needed. Thank you for that brilliant suggestion.

    i'm amazed people dont mention this place, think of wikipedia but for multi media and royalty free films, news etc. This would be my first place to search.

    Already searched it on diggers behalf. Nothing suitable.
