Nebraska Real Estate License

Hello friends, followers, and colleagues. This is a metaphorical photo to tell you about my next road to scout…  After months of education and information gathering (like pre-pro) the State of Nebraska has issued a real estate license—to me.

Yes, really. I’ll be associated with the brokerage Nebraska Realty.    I worked within the business of motion pictures for thirty years. Firstly as a Special Effects Tech, then as various Production titles, and most recently as a Location Scout and Manager. I searched and showed potential shooting locations to movie Directors, Filmmakers, and Photographers. My goal was to help them realize their creative vision. Now I’ll be working for sellers and buyers, helping them to realize theirs…

I will do location-scouting / manager jobs while transitioning however it is a big change… I’m calling it a parallel gig but the goal is to arrive on a more solid career path. No regrets from the many gigs of film, TV, and commercial production. Since all of us filmies are life addicts for the biz, I’ll always be one. Cinemalumni.
 

You can follow me on InstagramTwitter, and/or LinkedIn but as always, zero pressure. Truly.

Thank you for the love, support, encouragement, and followship.

Stay safe.

The Dodge Street Subway

th_Dodge St Subway Sat 7232016 approx 1pm Jamie Vesay WM IMG_7653 copyOkay, let’s get the big answer out-of-the-way. No, it is NOT a real subway with train tracks and passengers… Nor is it the fast-food sandwich chain. Sorry, but the latter is where you’ll be aimed if you do an online search.

The Dodge Street Subway is a short pedestrian walkway, which tunnels under Dodge street at 51st Street in Omaha. th_Dodge St Subway Sat 7232016 approx 1pm Jamie Vesay WM IMG_7656 copy

The underpass runs north and south, while (busy) Dodge street runs east and west. Dodge street here is also the Lincoln Highway.th_Dodge St Subway Sat 7232016 approx 1pm Jamie Vesay IMG_7658 copy

It was constructed in 1934 to help kids from Dundee School cross Dodge Street.  On that note – I must scream this….  BE SAFE!   th_Dodge St Subway Sat 7232016 approx 1pm Jamie Vesay WM IMG_7663 copy

If you’re shooting here, note the width of the tunnel. It will be tough to shoot wide seeing the wall and subject together. SOUND will be a challenge because of TRAFFIC and it is (of course) echoey. There is the proverbial “light at the end of the tunnel” to balance. UNCONFIRMED if overhead lights are LED. The street lamps do work. Maybe fluorescent?th_Dodge St Subway Sat 7232016 approx 1pm Jamie Vesay WM IMG_7667 copy

Could be a fun shot of a BIKE RIDER being chased or followed by camera on another bike – or drone.  Please have the proper crew to do it SAFELY!th_Dodge St Subway Sat 7232016 approx 1pm Jamie Vesay WM IMG_7664 copy

It is a one-of-a-kind LOCATION in Omaha and is on the National Register of Historic Places.th_Dodge St Subway Sat 7232016 approx 1pm Jamie Vesay WM IMG_7673 copy
