These Movies Were Filmed in One Take, or Look Like They Were

Since Sam Mendes’ 2019 military drama 1917, the “one-shot technique” has been a hot topic of discussion. This method involves directors filming the entire movie in one continuous shot, or at least making it appear that way, as can be perfectly seen in 2014’s Best Picture-winner Birdman, where each scene was shot fifteen to twenty times then stitched together to make it look like one take. It is an ingenious but difficult method, and pays off greatly when done well, as seen by the fact that the director of Birdman, Alejandro González Iñárritu broke cinematic boundaries with the film and won an Oscar for his work (along with the great cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki).
