A One Shot Film, is a movie shot in one long take, by a single camera. Or, it’s cut in such a way as to give the impression that it was. There have only been twenty movies ever shot in a single long take. And another seven that have been edited to look as if they were.
While not feature length, this 12 minute short film written and directed by Ruben Östlund is an ambitious project. He made the most of what was then state-of-the-art 5K technology to shoot his main master shot. The pans and zooms were then created in post to move the viewer through the story.
