This is the first in my series called “Shot Stitches”, where I stitch together frames from long-shots in film. The first to come to mind was Taxi Driver’s classic God’s Eye View shot.
When you see the shot laid out in one giant image, you get a real feel for the physical geography of the scene. I, for one, was shocked that the Taxi Driver shot covered less physical space than I remembered.
If you have any suggestions for other famous long takes, post a comment! I’m already working on a Children of Men and Oldboy stitch, so no need to suggest those.
