Mesmerizing Aerial Footage Of Arizona's Desert (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

A just-released video clip shot from a radio-controlled helicopter shows the Arizona desert from a striking new perspective.

According to Ivan Marcinko, one of the filmmakers, the footage was collected piecemeal on a drive between the Utah border and Phoenix with the crew pulling over whenever the scenery looked particularly enticing.

"[We] did have to watch out for the pesky forest rangers, always wanting to see permits," says Marcinko.
