Skyworks aims to create the best aerial stock footage available, and we have travelled from vineyard to veld to deliver a quality of aerial footage that will add value to any production focussing on South Africa and the World Cup.

Skyworks, the UK based independent producer and high definition aerial filming specialist, has today announced the opening of its totally new archive of HD aerial footage of South Africa.

A website has been launched to showcase seven themed showreels based on a selection of this South Africa aerial footage which is broken out into literally hundreds of clips. Skyworks has also launched a YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/user/SkyworksHD.
