Arriving in Los Angeles, the Machete Maiden’s team went through the usual immigration procedure and processed our Carney before catching yet another flight to Las Vegas. I’m not sure what I was expecting for our accommodation, after all Las Vegas is famous for it’s huge Luxor Casino Pyramid, New York New York Casino complete with a section of downtown New York city etc etc. However when I caught sight of our accommodation the Excalibur Casino Hotel, I had to laugh! It was Disneyland for Adults! Mark was heard saying in the car “Someone booking this place was wired into my brain”! Completely tacky but fun I guess?
Angelo & myself took some time around sunset to play with our cameras by walking around the main drag in Vegas. The photo’s you see here are as a result of this. Later we gathered ourselves together, despite being absolutely exhausted and had a steak inside the New York New York Casino.
Next day we setup for the first interview. The process had begun. For about two hours we enjoyed some pretty amazing stories of Genre Filmmaking in the Philippines! Definitely a good start! Completing the interview, we rushed the packup so that we could checkout, make our way to the airport and catch our flight to LA.
I’m writing this from our new abode, the Magic Castle Hotel Suits in LA. Hungry now, so I’m off to eat dinner. More soon
