Las Vegas Video Production often happens in, on, and around The Strip. Whether you’re on Las Vegas Boulevard or in one of the many properties, it’s important to know how to get around. Logistics are of course, a huge part of any production. That being said, how do you get your gear into the hotels? Can you just push through the front doors? Do you have permission to use the Loading Dock? Maybe just bring a flashlight and record on your iPhone?
A lot of times, if you have a Grip Cart or less worth of gear, you can push through the lobby/hotel. If you have multiple or larger carts, you may need to use the loading dock. Gaining access to the loading dock always requires permission, and occasionally an appointment. By simply calling the property, you should be able to set up a time to use the loading dock for a short while. Remember that docks are busy places, so you have to be quick and usually can’t leave your vehicle.
In rare instances, the loading dock will actually be more trouble than not, and so, it’s best to use self parking. Remember, it’s easier to ask for forgiveness than permission. All told, most properties are willing to accommodate, and they’re grateful for the business your client brings. If you work with them, they’re usually willing to help you out.
