Few flicks from our week out in Vegas earlier this month.
This was our second year filming The Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. The weather this year was actually less scorching and we won more money at the Craps tables - so it was a much better trip overall.
Tuesday night we filmed the Pairings Party for the Pro-Am at 1OAK inside The Mirage. Katherine Heigl was randomly at this event - her husband is some type of singer and he came out to golf in the Pro-Am. We actually didn't really recognize her - but we did talk to him for awhile. He came up and chatted with us about DSLR cameras for awhile and we sort of just thought he was one of the many regular camera nerds that typically accosts us everywhere we go.
JT played with George Lopez and Nick Watney. He actually outdrove Watney on a couple holes - the kid has got some game.
The homie George Lopez - great guy. Interesting golf swing but definitely nice, and funny too.
One of these guys just got married to Jessica Biel.
Nick handling some interviews over the weekend. Really good turnout this year, Davis Love III, John Daly, Vijay Singh, a lot of big names came out. Next year the tourney will be part of the FedEx Cup which will be a nice boost. We're stoked to see it grow - all the people at the tournament are super nice and professional and really chill to work with.
Roy, from the Hawaiian Fusion restaurants, came out to one of the charity events thrown at the tourney. He made some food for everyone and then Matt and Ryan interviewed him. We probably should've tried to get a Roy's gift card out of the whole deal - we sort of blew it.
Got up at dawn to film some b-roll around the course on Sunday.
Justin at the trophy presentation on the 18th green. Ryan Moore, who won the tourney, was actually a UNLV alumni so he had a ton of local support - people were chanting Rebel cheers for him as he walked the course Sunday which was kind of cool.
In the end, of course, it's all about the kids. This is Hunter, one of the hospital's patient ambassadors. Really nice kid - we interviewed him and his mom. Always a pleasure to work for the Shriners.
