Passenger stuck at Las Vegas airport makes a Celine Dion music video

Posted Jun 12, 2014

Richard Dunn was stuck at the Las Vegas airport overnight, but he decided to have fun with the situation. Dunn was stuck because he decided to accept vouchers from Delta Air Lines to be bumped off two consecutive flights. His flight was not scheduled to leave until 6AM the following day. He used his iPhone to create a music video for the song “All By Myself” by Celine Dion. He started to make his video at around 2AM using an iPhone, luggage tape, a ruler, suitcases, and a wheelchair.

Here is what he wrote on Vimeo:

I had a person behind a ticket counter give me a roll of luggage tape before she left. 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!

After recording the scenes with the iPhone, he hopped on Final Cut Pro to create the final result above.
