- Mar 2, 2009Anybody know how I can identify movie locations in San Francisco and in Las
Vegas? This has got nothing to do with PR, but I'm writing a novel set in
those two cities (plus Afghanistan and Iraq, but I think I'll just "fake it"
on those). As a sideline to the story, I want to have the characters
recognize these sites - often with surprise - and have them react. The lead
character is a cable news correspondent (a former war correspondent back in
the states and covering crime) and the blending of reality with "reelity"
will be a subtext - not a major part of the story, but something to provide
some local color.
I've lived in Vegas for nearly 20 years, but I've never seen a movie being
made - I know one "site" (the laboratory that Rick Moranis worked at in
"Somebody Blew Up The Baby" is, in fact, the headquarters of the electric
utility) and I've tried to decipher the crash scene in Con-Air (the plane
had to zigzag north and south and jink off the Strip to fly by the Hard Rock
before coming back to the Strip to crash), but I just don't have any other
locations for either city.
