When ‘Story Of My Life’ debuted on Nov. 3, we were treated to the most intimate, touching look at the boys of 1D. Now that they’ve released a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the video, we can see how much effort it took to bring their personal histories to life!
For the touching music video of “Story Of My Life,” One Direction took the song title literally and showed their millions of fans their backstories through thousands of childhood photographs. And in a behind-the-scenes video released on Nov. 10, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, and Niall Horan showed just how hard they worked to open themselves up to Directioners.
One Direction: The Making Of ‘Story Of My Life’
It turns out the process of creating the amazing video was just as emotional as the final product. The behind-the-scenes clip shows how thousands upon thousands of the boys’ old photographs were hung up in a worn-down warehouse. Watching the actual video you don’t realize how much time and effort the set design required, so this newest clip really puts things into perspective.
And it’s funny to see the guys walk through the building, look at their old pictures and relive their childhoods. “There’s an embarrassing shot of me pulling a stupid face as per usual,” Liam jokes, pointing to a photo of himself as a baby.
It’s also super cool to see how the 1D guys were able to recreate the old pictures of themselves in painstaking detail with some of their family members.
