Story in a Single Shot

August 8, 2009

As a still photographer, the challenge is to tell the story in a single photograph. It’s a little more complicated when you get to moving images but here’s a nice version of a 5 minute history story in a single unbroken film shot. OK, it’s for whiskey but it’s still engaging. Robert Carlyle is the actor and Jamie Rafn is the director.

    Bob: A brilliant tour de force. From the actor, and the cinematographer. I wonder how many takes it took? Gotta say, despite the fact that it’s an ad, that it is a dazzling piece of work! Bob K.

    Dazzling indeed! Wonder if that waited for that overcast day?
