A man played each part in a 70-piece orchestra and cut it into a one-man show
A man from Hull in the UK has taken the concept of the one-man band and run with it.
Ben Morfitt, 24, spent a month creating a video of himself playing the parts of a 70-piece orchestra in his bedroom and posted the bizarre result to YouTube.
He filmed an empty concert hall in the city’s Abermarle Music Centre as the basis for the clip, before then taping himself playing each instrument in front of a green screen and slowly building the orchestra, the Hull Daily Mail reports.
“It took a full month to film,” Morfitt said. “I used about three-and-a-half hours’ [worth of] footage for the final piece, and there’s about ten times that in outtakes.”
He had to edit out his cat every time it wandered into the shot.
The whole thing ends with 70 versions of himself turning to the camera to give it the finger.
