One of the best videos I’ve come across this month comes courtesy of Tony Zhou, whom edits together an educational video regarding the great Steve Spielberg’s “oners”.
“One overlooked aspect of Spielberg is that he’s actually a stealth master of the long take,” explains Zhou. “From Duel to Tintin, for forty years, he has sneakily filmed many scenes in a single continuous shot.”
The below video takes us on a journey through Spielberg’s career and shares with us various continuous shots, along with explanations as to why they’re so important to a film’s impact.
You want to learn to appreciate film even more, this is a great place to begin. (note: the above link also carries two more links to a massive breakdown of shots.)
