This Is Us was first announced by the band while on The Today Show in New York’s Rockefeller Plaza on 12 November 2012, followed by confirmation it would be directed by Morgan Spurlock. Spurlock, who unsuccessfully negotiated to direct similar films, Justin Bieber: Never Say Never and Katy Perry: Part of Me, said that he took on the film because of the band’s fast-track rise to stardom. The film started filming in Tokyo on the 17 January 2013 and was being shot in 3D with 4K resolution RED Epic digital cameras, in which Spurlock said gave a cinematic appeal. The film was later given the name One Direction: This Is Us on 19 March 2013, previously being referred to as 1D3D.
This have further said that the film is not scripted, with the footage genuine and of them acting “naturally”. Styles admitted that the cameras following them around was scary but said that this film gives them the opportunity to show more personality, how they interact, and how they relax when not on stage. Niall Horan remarked that the film crew had access all areas, even filming them in the toilet. It has also been reported that one of the last scenes the band filmed involved a survivor challenge, where they were dropped off by helicopter in a Scandinavian woodland, to be like wildness survival expert Bear Grylls.
Scenes shown in trailers include footage of fans telling stories related to the band following a request posted on YouTube, as well as comment from Simon Cowell, who was their mentor on The X Factor and is also a producer of the film.
