Wide Eye Productions is pleased to announce the pending release of Idaho the Movie 2. A sequel to the original Emmy award-winning film, Idaho the Movie 2 uncovers more hidden jewels from this Rocky Mountain state. An artists’ theme carries viewers into wild and wide open landscapes– from untouched wilderness areas to desert canyons lost in time, to sparkling big lakes to hidden geothermal hot springs. Shot entirely in Ultra High Definition and beyond, Idaho the Movie 2 delivers a visual feast to anyone looking for an escape into the wild.
“What’s that?” you ask, “the same folks who brought us Idaho, the Movie and The Rocky Mountain Fly Highway, are at it again?” Yes, we are! We were so pleased to by how much viewers loved our previous films and how they shared with us their interest in seeing more of the beauty this state has to offer, that there was only one thing we could do!
So for the past year, we’ve been filming new locations across the state to bring you, Idaho the Movie 2. From the Selkirk Mountains on the Canadian boarder and the many lakes up North, to the Magruder Corridor Wilderness Road which runs through Central Idaho, to the Shoofly Oolite Lakebed in the Owyhee Desert and on over to the Bear Lake National Wildlife Refuge in South East, and just about everywhere in between. Our crews have criss-crossed the state to capture the outdoor features so many of us rarely get to experience.
But what makes this production even more breath-taking is the aerial footage filmed from a full size helicopter with a gyro-stabilized camera. Large portions of Idaho the Movie 2 were filmed from the air in a format nearly three times the size of high definition– 5K! The results are gorgeous and showcase the rarely seen, rugged and remote landscapes of Idaho.
Idaho the Movie 2 will premier on November 15th at the Egyptian Theater in Boise. Northwest-wide broadcasts of the film will kick off shortly afterward (check your local station listings for air times) and DVDs and Blurays will be available just in time for the holiday season.
Thank you for watching!
