Las vegas has some of the most wild sunsets I have ever seen, and I’ve been on a cross country road trip before. Driving through the mountains with snow on one side of the road but not the other and hanging out of the back of a 2004 Ford Expedition while the sun was setting was such an awesome experience.
To be able to have captured that experience and now relay it to you guys, the viewers, is one of the best parts of my job. After we captured those rolling shots we turned down a desert road that seemed to go on forever. There we captured our detail shots and some amazing drone footage as you will see. Its a little muddy because I still have on an ND filter as it was getting dark out but they are still some of my favorite shots. After that we took a break and I ran back to my cousins to film a short segment for his video then met back up with Shiro to go down the strip hanging out the back of the Expedition again and see what happened. We captured shots out of the back hatch and the side windows. To my surprise we ran into 0 trouble and were able to make multiple runs up and down Las Vegas Boulevard.
We then captured the overhead and highway shot you see and the final shot in his garage and called it a day. It was awesome moving to so many different locations and capturing a ton of unique footage. Not all went perfect though. I had Shiro do a lap with a microphone for audio but it came out to muffled so I had to make the call to scrap most audio. Either way I am super happy with how this came out. Especially the night time scenes. Can’t wait to be back in Vegas for Stance Wars coming up!
