Richard Dunn: All By Himself

Ever since I did the video of me doing calligraphy, I've been kinda looking into video editing.  I'm even thinking of doing a music video with the people at work . . . but don't hold your breath for that one . . . could take me months . . . and only if I can get enough people to be in um. 

Anyway, I found this video that a guy did using his iPhone to kill time while he was stuck at Las Vegas' McCarran International Airport. I think it is amaaaaazing.

I got the below info from an article by writer Laura T. Coffey. 

He was all alone. He had several hours to kill in Las Vegas' McCarran International Airport. And that’s when comedic inspiration hit.

While waiting overnight to board a 6 a.m. Delta flight, Richard Dunn realized that the vast, deserted airport could serve as an empty movie set. So he did what any bored/techie/funny guy might do: He made a sweeping, cinematic music video while lip-synching Celine Dion’s “All By Myself.”

Richard Dunn says:  “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.”

J: I kept thinking how many times did he have to sing that song at each location to be able to piece it all together. He's one talented dude. -N
