Welcome to Las Vegas - Sin City USA! Come and take this magical tour of one of the most surreal cities in the world. Where else can you visit every continent in one day, from the pyramids of Egypt, to the canals of Venice, the Eiffel tower in Paris to the hustle and bustle of New York, New York. The line between day and night is well and truly blurred in this 24 hour a day town, where time doesn't exist indoors, and people never sleep.
I visited Las Vegas in June 2011 - mid summer. It is only in ~44deg C (111 deg F) temperatures that you truly begin to appreciate just how much area the Las Vegas strip covers, and how far it is to walk. Fortunately many of the casinos and arcades/malls interlink so that you don't need to experience the ferocious desert heat for long. Even so, there was a fair amount of outdoor daytime shooting performed in the making of this film. It was the desire to still use that hard won footage that led to the theme of "By Day, By Night".
I hope you enjoy my little look at Las Vegas!
