While only a few years old, the High Roller at The Linq has quickly become a very popular attraction for tourists and cameras alike. Whether you’re hitting Sin City for some fun, or, filming a commercial, television show, or the like, the Linq provides excellent views of the world-famous Las Vegas Strip.
It’s not just a matter of stepping into a pod with your crew and talent and hitting record though. First, of course you’ll want to contact the fine folks over at the Linq (they’re nice folks) and make sure it’s cool to film; here’s where you’ll not only get permission, but you can also see if they can make any concessions for you. Once you get into your pod, you’ll note that there is no power available- so, bring batteries. Second, there’s not a ton of room- while you’re not in the coat closet, you won’t be able to put that jib up. Next, depending on what time of day you’re in there, you may have quite a battle on your hands with the sun. During the day, your view is less than stellar… while Vegas tries valiantly to make everything look nice when the sun is out, we all know this city looks best bathed in neon. So, you may be thinking to yourself, “Okay Jim, no problem there, we’ll shoot at night.”, well, after availability, you’ll want to remember that those pods do reflect something fierce, so you’ll need to get creative lighting your talent. Once the sun goes down, and the strip lights up, it’s absolutely stunning (for about 15 minutes at the top).
I can go on, but, you’re probably bored to death if you’ve made it this far. So, instead, go give it a shot, or, let FiveSix Productions do it for you- no fuss, no muss. Put your beloved video shoot in the hands of the best Las Vegas video production company!?
