Extended Single-shot Sequences

25 03 2010

Lots of movies have them nowadays. They are generally used to showcase an impressive performance, show-off a well-told story, or display a amazing feats of choreography. While it would be inaccurate to say that long takes are any more difficult to produce than a well-edited sequence of shots, a well done extended take can make you sit-up in your seat and say “wow”. Often, the ones that are most talked about are the most showy, like “Children of Men”, “Touch of Evil”, or that awesome fight scene in “Oldboy”.  I’d like to link a Vimeo video I’d found of some less showy, perhaps lesser known ones.

Deep Focus from Jim Emerson on Vimeo.

I’ll include a link to a website featuring all of those flashier ones as well:
