The Importance of using a single shot / long take.

For my 1st video I have decided to use a single long take that lasts around 25 secs leaving 5 for the intro. This is really because it is a very linear way of showing the process happening and unfolding. It is very easy to follow along with through the 3 act structure as well.

However I will not be the first to use this process. 16 Incredible Long Takes.

If this process works for my 1st video I will definitely look into repeating this for the 2nd and 3rd video also as it is a really effective way of showing continuation and process within a short video. The linear flow should help replicate and envisage a guide alongside the actual process as it happens everyday.

 

And also a bit of inspiration just to keep me sane….
