What Photographers Do To Entertain Themselves In An Airport
Okay this video has no real educational value at all but I really enjoyed it. Larry Chen and Joe Ayala, two drifting photographers and videographers for Tandem of Die, recently were stuck overnight at the Dallas Fort-Worth Airport. Instead of trying to sleep on the fluorescent soaked vinyl benches, they decided to create a fun video of them playing around the empty airport while security was apparently asleep. Using a few Gopros, their Canon 5D Mark II DLSRs, and some really clever camera angles, Justin and Joe have made a video that is sure to go viral. Already there is a lot of debate going on about the lack of security in Dallas causing the DFW Airport having to issue the statement below. This isn’t the first time something like this has happened but, I’m pretty sure things are soon going to change. Hopefully as photographers and videographer, you can appreciate the cinematography and clever camera angles.

Statement issued by the the Dallas Fort-Worth Airport:
“While DFW Airport can appreciate the creativity and humor demonstrated by the filmmakers, the Airport does not condone their entry into a closed place of business after hours. The video did point out the need to better secure this restaurant, and that issue is being addressed immediately. Further, it’s important to note that security agents observed the two filmmakers at several points during the making of the video. Because the filmmakers were presenting no threat to themselves, to others or to flight safety, and were causing no damage, there was no imperative to curtail their activities. DFW Airport, together with its security partners, maintains a high level of security at all times, and at no time did the filmmakers’ activities present any level of danger or threat to flight safety. And by the way, they also picked up after themselves, including the restroom.”
