Man ‘all by himself’ in airport makes epic music video

What would you do if you found yourself stuck in an airport overnight after your flight was canceled?

Most of us would be stressed, maybe eat or sleep or read or watch something. Some of us would likely bitch about it – I sure would!

“I thought, ‘well, I don’t have enough time to go to a hotel, so what do I do?’” Dunn told CBC News. “I’ve got my phone and an empty movie set, lets see what trouble I can get into.”

“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.”

And here, folks, is Dunn’s epic masterpiece. You’re welcome.
