Movies and Las Vegas. Over the past years numerous motion pictures and music videos have been filmed throughout Las Vegas. Casinos post a small sign as people enter the casino area they are filming, thus by continuing to enter the casino you are giving your consent to be possibly filmed in the background of their shot. This week’s Reader Poll asks . . . Do you have any problem having your picture taken while you are visiting a casino?   What is your Opinion? Why or Why not?

I would love to be in any video or movie, that would be so exciting.  Deb  H.  NY

*   Not a problem at all. I remember some years back, my former girlfriend's parents had been on a cruise out around Hong Kong. Then they got a hold of a copy of the Love Boat, shot in the same areas of Hong kong they had been in. I'd love to be in some movie background scenes and the when it comes out on DVD get a copy to show the kids, grandkids, greatgrand kids...whatever...for posterity. Like..ooh, look there's Robert DeNiro, standing 12 feet away from Daddy!  Mark Rathz  Oxnard, California

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas...and it stays captured on video tape! Las Vegas has the greatest food, architecture, shows, and of course gambling in the United States. There's something for everyone...except privacy.  The signs posted at the casino door about video filming of special events are little more than a courtesy. Your every movement is captured, recorded, and evaluated by the Eye In The Sky.  The signs should read "Please scratch and pick before entering You are on tape!"   David Wade  Killbuck, OH

*  I dont want my photo taken while in Vegas, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.  John Pastore  Buffalo, New York

*  Personally, I don't care if my picture is captured for film use. I have a clear conscience. However, since many come to Las Vegas with the idea of the motto 'What happens here, stays here', it is wise to have a warning sign to protect the 'innocent' as well as the 'guilty' who don't want to find themselves on film for all to see.  Lillian Dufresne  Woodbine, GA

*  Yes I have a problem with having my picture taken while visiting a casino. I'am not entering the casino to be an extra in some film, I'm there to have an enjoyable time gambling-what happened to the saying "what happens in vegas stays in vegas"  Jack Callahan  Glendale, CA

I have no problem with giving my consent by seeing, reading and passing by a sign indicating that a filming is going on, where I am headed. We must all take responsibility for ourselves, much like when we were taught as youngsters, before crossing the street, look both ways before stepping onto the street, or observing the traffic signals if they are present. If we do not do so, we take the action at our own risk. Our society has become lawsuit happy, baaad.  Roger Tokushge  Aiea, Hawaii

*  As a general proposition I have no problem with having my picture taken. I'm counting on the casinos to control the selection of those companies they give permission to film in the casinos. I trust that they will only give permission to companies that will portray the casino in a flattering manner and have problem with being a part or that type of production. If the company were filming as part of something which portrays all patrons as degenerates, I would not want to be filmed.  Rich K  Zion, IL

*  The whole idea of background atmosphere personnel is to create the ambiance of a normal day. If you walk into a camera zone, you should accept that you are neither going to be allowed a quick pass through makeup, nor will you be compensated for your contribution. If you don't like what a camera does to you, or approve of someone using your image for profit, then detour. I just lift up my chin to catch the light, suck in my gut a little, and pray not to trip over my own feet.  Don Bartley  Portland, OR

*  I have no problem with it. As a matter of fact, I am usually conscious of the constant survelliance by the casino's security cameras and being part of the background for a movie would not bother me in the least.   Bryan T. Miller  Boyne City, MI

Heck No, I would Love to know that I may be on a film while in Vegas,  It's my favorite place in the world to go have fun and I go at least three times a year.  It would be an honor to me to be in any background goings on at the casinos cause its exciting and cool! Besides , if your afraid to be seen there, then maybe you ought to stay home is how I feel, and if you have nothing to hide, then have fun and go for it no matter what is being filmed. I hope I come out in a movie someday.   Annette Vigil  Taos New Mexico

*   I guess if I where a wanted criminal, I would have a problem being filmed. Or if I were at a conference where I was suppose to be working I might have a problem but I am not so what's the big deal?  Maybe I will be discovered and become famous. Kenneth Eyer   Frankfort Illinois

 I believe that the sign as described is not specific enough to assume that the patron of the Casino is giving permission to be filmed. If the sign was specific to say - "in the sports book" or "the gaming tables" or "the high rollers lounge", that would make it clear that if you are in an area mentioned, you may be filmed. Now this gives control back to the patron as to whether or not to be part of the filming.   Phyllis Wenger  Kyle. TX
