A few months ago my friend, Will Hayes, put me in contact with Bill Mather and Angie Gubser to discuss filming the implosion of an 11-story hotel across the street. Mr. Mather was kind enough to allow Matt and I to set up our cameras inside the blast perimeter, on the roof and in a vacant second story office of a building he owned. Thank you Bill, Angie, and Will for providing the opportunity to film such an incredible event.
