Clay Rasmussen and Matthew Tyler Ray were producing a short film entitled Coming Attractions, and in the process were able to capture some interesting aerial footage of Cincinnati’s center city. Rasmussen, an Electronic Media student at the University of Cincinnati, says that he is interested in video and film production.

The seven-minute video starts out along the Ohio River in Newport, then circles Cincinnati’s central business district. The small helicopter then returns to the Northern Kentucky riverfront for a landing, but not before capturing some very unique video imagery of the center city.
