If being told ‘your flight has been delayed’ isn’t bad enough, the thought of then being stuck in an airport over night would make most people envision hours of boredom and discomfort. However when this happened to Richard Dunn, 43 years old, last month he made the best out of the situation.
Using only his iPhone, Richard created his own music video to the Celine Dion song ‘All by myself.’ But if he was all by himself, how did he film some of those angles? Richard, explained on his Vimeo page;
“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!”
The video has been an internet sensation, in fact the video was such a success even Celin Dion got in touch! (See below) Richard Dunn has certainly become an inspiration to anyone who finds themselves in a similar predicament.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mKavui_1YnQ?&rel=0&modestbranding=1&controls=1&frameborder=]
