Richard Dunn probably did not get the rights to the illustrious ballad “All By Myself.” Nor did he have an inkling of the idea that it would be shot in one night. On his smart phone. In an airport terminal. All by his lonesome self. Here are some behind the scenes notes from the acclaimed director:
“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!”
And here is the video. I just hope to God you are a Celine fan.
