Today I was shooting for CoverEdge in Las Vegas and the production was to cover the live presentation of The Las Vegas Pride Parade.
First off, I gotta say I had a blast! I have shot many parades before but none as fun and outgoing as the Las Vegas Pride Parade. The Production crew was a little worried before the start of the parade that many participants might be a little too outgoing and show their pride in their birthday suits. They even went as far as to have a pre-production meeting with all camera operators to go over the procedure of what to do if there looks like nakedness is approaching. I of course laughed and just nodded.
But as expected the parade went off without any problems. Most people are still against gays and lesbians and to them I say…foreshame. To each his/her own and may we all get what we want out of life.

Check out Milk, starring Sean Penn and directed by Gus Van Sant who also directed Good Will Hunting.
