Do-Over Boy Looking for Help
Dylan puts out a plea for assistance:
As you may or may not be aware, the legendary Stardust Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada will be imploded at approximately 2:30 AM on Tuesday, March 13th. The nearby main road is being closed off between midnight and 4:00 A.M, and all signs nail the demolition at 2:30 AM.
The more steady, descriptive shots the better. We'll do whatever we can to compensate those that shoot footage. If you happen to get some coverage of it, please let us know.
Also, Professor Steven Jones is requesting dust samples. Anyone who can help us both out wiil be thanked extensively. In fact, anyone who helps us will get a special credit in the Final Cut.
Of course, Dylan provided plenty of advance notice on this; he posted his request at 7:30 last night, about 7 hours before the building came down (yep, it's too late to get your name in Dylan's cruddy movie).
Here's a video of what the Stardust looked like about a month ago; amazing how much stuff they cleared out, unlike in that WTC job a few years back. This also reveals how goofy Steven Jones' request for dust is; let me guess, he's going to use this to prove that the sulfur at the WTC didn't come from drywall?

Update: Here's a YouTube Video:
Leave it to Las Vegas to turn it into a production number. Unfortunately, you can't actually see the building come down; you get a better view here:
