One Direction release behind-the-scenes video for ‘Story of My Life’ - watch!
If you got a bit emotional watching the music video for ‘Story of My Life,’ then get the tissues ready again!
The One Direction boys have unveiled a behind-the-scenes video showing the making of their latest clip and watching our five favourite Brits reminisce about their childhoods is just a wee bit of a tear-jerker. You have been warned.
The clip shows the painstaking process that the crew went through to recreate the childhood photos of Harry, Liam, Louis, Niall and Zayn – having to get them into the exact right positions in the shot in order to mirror the old images.
“Everything’s gotta be spot on,” explains Liam. “They’re using the old photos of us when we were kids over the monitor to line us up correctly and get us in the right place.”
The star also admitted that he’s been having a great time going through his pals’ childhood snaps.
“It’s quite nice to look at everyone else’s pictures actually,” he shared. “We were all doing the same thing and now we’re still together doing the same thing, so technically we’re living our lives in sync.”
While One Direction have been in the spotlight for the past three years and have shared a lot of themselves with their fans, the director for the video – Ben Winston – sees this as a way for the boys to give Directioners a little more insight into who they really are.
“The fans know so much about the boys but in a way we’re revealing just that little bit more,” he explained.
“We’re showing quite intimate moments that people haven’t seen before.”
