KTWU Presents PORTRAIT OF A LANDSCAPE, THE FLINT HILLS

See the beauty of Kansas through a visually-stunning journey, photographed in high-definition digital perfection, featuring the glorious Flint Hills during one of their most striking times of the year, Spring. Gorgeous wildflowers, magnificent landscapes, dramatic prairie fires, tremendous thunderstorms…all part of the visual impact of the Kansas Flint Hills, showcased by magnificent aerial digital video. Long ago, 250 million acres of tallgrass prairie extended its reach across Canada to Texas. Today, it is almost entirely gone, claimed and farmed by settlers and early pioneers. But Kansas was lucky. Due to the rocky soil that is made mostly of limestone, the prairie here was spared the plow and survived. So named for the abundant residual mineral which eroded from the lower bedrock and lies near the surface, the Flint Hills are one of nature’s true treasures. Today this special, delicately balanced ecosystem provides a unique fertile preserve for an amazing variety of flora and fauna and a home for many creatures from butterflies to bison. For this unique project, KTWU has partnered with Rockhouse Motion.  From a studio set on the family farm in Central Kansas first settled by ancestors over a century ago, Rockhouse Motion creates an intense and unforgettable emotion through their camera lens taking viewers on a Flint Hills journey like never before. Join us for this historic program where viewers are placed right into the life-cycle...
