Film buff Tony Zhou has pieced together an interesting study of one-shot takes in film; Steven Spielberg's use of the "oner" in particular. Zhou explains Spielberg's handling of this technique in the larger context of other legendary directors who have employed it, such as Alfred Hitchcock and Martin Scorsese. Zhou further breaks down his Spielberg clips into two related videos, one called "The Spielberg Oner: Eight Lengthy Examples" and the other presenting "twelve quick examples." See them both at Zhou's Vimeo channel or at his Tumblr site Every Frame a Painting. Via Laughing Squid.
