This Guy Got Stuck Overnight in an Airport So He Made a Music Video About It
After being bumped off two consecutive flights, Richard Dunn had a choice: stay at a nearby hotel for a few measly hours or stay at the airport until his 6 am flight the next morning. Dunn opted for the latter, making the most of his alone time by filming a glorious music video to the Celine Dion version of the Eric Carmen classic, “All by Myself”.
And how did he get those all those amazing tracking shots and camera angles with just his iPhone? Dunn explains:
“I had a person behind a ticket counter give me a roll of luggage tape before she left. I then used a wheel chair that had a tall pole on the back of it and taped my iPhone to that. Then I would put it on the moving walkway for a dolly shot. I also used the extended handle on my computer bag and taped the iPhone to my handle. I would tuck different stuff under the bag to get the right angle. For the escalator shot I had to sprint up the steps after I got my shot so the computer bag didn’t hit the top and fall back down. Quite fun!”
