iSPOT of the Week: HGTV's "Vegas Sizzles"
HGTV is promoting the second season of "Design Star," which starts July 22, with a long form video that plays at www.hgtv.com/designstar.
"Vegas Sizzles," shot in Las Vegas, where the show takes place, features three elements -- casino footage at the beginning of the film, which sets the tone; footage from the show that shows the host, Clive Pearse and the designers; and footage from the title sequence, which wraps the film.
Sedna Films shot the casino footage during a one day shoot at the Aladdin Casino. Belief, a design and live action studio, which shot the title credits for the first seaon of the show, did a shoot in Vegas green screening the cast members so they could be inserted into existing footage to conclude the film.
