One Direction launch 3-D behind scenes documentary This Is Us
LONDON (REUTERS) - British boy band One Direction, one of the pop music industry's biggest acts in the last two years, plan to show the world what they're really like in a new 3-D documentary which will premiere in London on Tuesday.
The five singers told a news conference in the British capital on Monday that This Is Us allowed them to present themselves in a more fulsome manner than they are depicted on videos, in concert and on the ubiquitous social media sites which track their every movement on and off stage.
"There is only so much you can get across in terms of your personality, you know, social media and like 10 minute interviews you do with people," singer Harry Styles said.
"So I think...(it's) a way for us to get across what we are like and what we are like with each other for the fans to see." Bandmembers Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik and Styles were all on hand to talk about the behind-the-scenes film and the media interest that has engulfed them since they first became a group on a British TV talent show in 2010.
