Imagine being stuck in an airport all night… all by yourself… If you can do this, you are now imagining the plight of Richard Dunn. This guy was stuck in McCarran Airport in Las Vegas overnight and decided to make the most of it by making a music video. As his wife watched on, he lip synced, danced, and posed for shots on his iPhone through the course of the three hour shoot. The result is this…
This all happened after being given vouchers by Delta Airlines for a flight the next morning at 6:00 AM. Seeing that there wasn’t really time for a hotel, he started googling songs about being alone and came across “All by Myself.” He started shooting at 2:00 AM in the empty airport (other than his wife who sat and watched and a few custodians). What came out of that shoot has been flying across the internet and definitely given him his two minutes of fame.
“I had a person behind a ticket counter give me a roll of luggage tape before she left,” he wrote in Vimeo’s comments. “I then used a wheelchair 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!”
What do you think of it?
Make it a GREAT day!
