Sequenceshots

 

The great Orson Welles used to say :”A long-playing full shot is what always separates the men from the boys. Anybody can make movies with a pair of scissors and a two-inch lens.” And as usual, the master was totally right. Thanks to movies such as “Children of men”, “Gravity” or “Birdman” (and a lot more) the sequence shots are once again very popular and with the help of digital cinema that removed several limitations we previously had (such for instance the time limitation of 10 minutes due to the size of 35mm film magazines), this kind of shot has become RELATIVELY easier (or at least possible even for small and medium-sized productions). The capital letters are on purpose, since shooting a one-shot sequence is still an extremely complicated thing to do, the longer the harder...

The 'developing master' shot has been a staple of TV coverage for many years. On one show I used to work on in the UK, we sometimes covered 2,3 or as many as 5 page scenes in a single flowing camera move, mostly without additional coverage. Blocking and rehearsal become crucial, and the pressure is on everyone to get it right. Each take becomes almost like a live musical performance.
