Special Media Considerations: Due to the logistics, you may want to be prepared with two crews: one for the departure and return at the Seneca Niagara Casino one in the Niagara Falls State Park for the stunt. The stunt will last approximately 5 minutes. Our team conducted a practice run with our local helicopter company and it was determined that with the right telephoto equipment, the Observation Tower at Prospect Point will be the best film shooting area for the stunt. We plan to make the Observation Tower available to media as early as 4:30 am however, you will need to coordinate with Angela Berti at Niagara Falls State Park in order to obtain an insurance certificate which will be required. She can be reached at (716)278-1764 or Angela.Berti@parks.ny.gov. Should you choose to set up at the tower, you will be permitted to enter the park with one vehicle. The park will provide escorts from Parking Lot 1.
