Hi all, I'm a recent graduate of the MPT dept at the Academy of Art in San Francisco. I'm working on my first serious short film, a psychological sci-fi drama. Once we have funding we're hoping to cast Peter Coyote (E.T. Sphere, Erin Brockovich) in a role before we shoot in October.
So I'm creating a short trailer to generate interest from a potential funder(s) for the short.

For the trailer I need a tracking aerial shot of a town or city/birds eye view.
I simply can't afford the royalty-free ones I've seen on gettyimages and other stock footage sites. Are there any free sites? places where I can download this shot (720x486) for free? I haven't been able to find anything on google.
Any suggestions or links would be very appreciated, as for this shot I also can't afford a copter cam rig (and the helicopter itself obviously!)
