Production at 8500 feet

Updated: Apr 15, 2020


Mt. Potosi is a mere 15 miles from the Las Vegas strip, but there are very few signs of the glitz here at 8500 feet. Right now the Las Vegas strip is completely closed, shut down to contain and protect. We began this documentary early in 2020 and this production day was scheduled and we knew we wouldn't see anyone at all, so we continued with cameras and mics in hand.

The new film, still untitled, will reveal the real story of the tragedy that occurred on this mountain in 1942. On the foggy night of January 16th, a plane crashed into these peaks and killed actress Carole Lombard and her Mother-along with 20 other people in a fiery moment.
