Right now I work the graveyard shift at a cannabis dispensary just outside of the city, but one afternoon I plan to be a film manager! I have written many scripts, although I just don’t have the funds or the resources to shoot them as films, working the overnight shift often gives me a good deal of down time, which is why I do so much writing.
However, a associate gave me a good idea to step things up a bit, and shoot footage in the dispensary late at night.
In other sites the cannabis dispensaries close for the night, but this is Las Vegas, so we need to be open and ready for action 24 hours a afternoon, but you might remember a little film called Clerks, made by a guy named Kevin Smith for almost nothing, and my idea was to steal his idea and shoot a riff on Clerks set in my own Las Vegas cannabis dispensary, however clerks was set in a real-life convenience store in New Jersey, so a cannabis shop in Las Vegas was weird enough, right? Mostly I just shot footage of myself and my friend, but when we had a cannabis customer come in I would keep the camera rolling, the people of Las Vegas are undoubtedly laid back, and most of us are used to being recorded. It’s difficult to go ten feet in Las Vegas separate from seeing a security camera of a tourist filming on their iPhone. If I do this long enough, I may have enough footage for a short film, and look out, Las Vegas!
