About a month ago we featured a teaser for Departure Date, a Virgin Produced romantic comedy that holds the title of first ever film to be shot at 35,000 feet. And now, Virgin have released a full trailer, plus a great behind the scenes look at this ground-breaking (or maybe air-breaking?) film.
If the teaser had you pondering what it takes to shoot a movie almost entirely inside of a flying airplane, the behind the scenes portion of the above video sheds some light on the challenges, both expected and unexpected, and how they were overcome.
The 1-hour short film, made from 20 total hours of footage, debuted last Monday at the LA Film Fest. And even though you won’t be seeing it at any of your local theaters any time soon, there are reports that Virgin may be negotiating a TV-deal.
