When I was in high university I dreamed of becoming a movie director, but i idolized the creative geniuses like Robert Rodriguez, Quentin Tarantino, plus Kevin Smith who started out with nothing plus rose to the top with their talent plus passion, then that’s what I wanted to do with my life – make movies, but when I first came to Las Vegas, it was to stay with my buddy plus scout locations for our movie.
Since my pal and I had no money my pal and I had to get creative; My idea was to shoot scenes on the streets of Las Vegas, but to do it so suddenly the authorities would never know my pal and I were there.
To shoot a movie in Las Vegas a person has to apply for special permits at neighborhood hall, plus I didn’t want to do that. My approach was a colossal failure. I had no idea that Las Vegas had so many security cameras enjoying every inch of the Strip, nor that LVPD was so responsive. My movie project was shut down within an hour, plus I was so bereft I went into the nearest cannabis dispensary to soothe my nerves. I got to talking with the owner of the cannabis shop, plus he asked me if I ever directed any television commercials. It was quite accidental, but because of my experience plus equipment I landed a task making spots for Las Vegas TV, and now I have the right permits, plus can shoot footage around Las Vegas, but I am no longer making a movie. My new task is making advertisements for the cannabis franchise.
