* Propaganda pic ''I Am Cuba'' has some incredibly long takes filmed from the back of moving cars, and in one, which follows the coffin of a dead student through crowded streets, the camera goes up the sides of a building, through the top floor, and then out again along a balcony...[[spoiler:It was done by having the camera passed along a 'bucket line' of volunteers!]]

* The ''Series/ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia'' episode "Charlie Work" features a seven minute-long sequence with the appearance of one shot following Charlie as he takes the health inspector around the bar and orchestrates the other characters to make the building seem up to code.

* The ''Series/ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia'' episode "Charlie Work" features a seven minute-long sequence with the appearance of one shot following Charlie as he takes the health inspector around the bar and orchestrates the other characters to make the building seem up to code. There's some very seamless trickery to combine the footage together, as the Paddy Pub's interior set is not in the same location as its exterior.

* In the forgotten comedy ''The Crew'', the movie has a rather clever homage to the ''Goodfellas'' oner; the film's four lead aging gangsters try to get in to a crowded diner for an early-bird special, and are led through the back of the kitchen for a good minute, Scorcese-style. Only instead of being led to a table, the manager leads them to the back alley exit and shuts the door behind them.

* The film ''Film/DeathSentence'' has one which follows Kevin Bacon's character chasing a {{mook}} through several floors of a parking complex. As it was a handheld camera that covered a lot of distance both horizontally and vertically, it was literally handed off from one cameraman to another through the duration of the sequence.

** During Recap/GameOfThronesS4E9TheWatchersOnTheWall, the penultimate episode of season 4, there is a continuous, unbroken shot of the battle happening in the center yard at Castle Black, which slowly pans in a complete circle showing how the battle is playing out for pretty much everyone at The Wall.

** Finally, in Recap/GameOfThronesS6E9, in the thick of the battle with the Boltons, there's an EpicTrackingShot of Jon on the battlefield killing as many soldiers as he can. Cavalry are charging everywhere, arrows are constantly falling and it's sometimes difficult to tell who's a foe and who's not. It's used to emphasize the utter chaos of such a battle as well as how most of the time, survival is based on luck as much as skill, as Jon only survives because of sheer luck multiple times.

* An even earlier cinematic use, possibly even the first, was in the 1931 version of ''Film/DrJekyllAndMrHyde'', which begins with a three-minute continuous shot which moves between two interiors across a large set -- both technically and aesthetically daring for the time. Even more impressively, this shot is from Jekyll's point of view. At one point the camera-as-Jekyll even looks in a mirror; the production had the actor standing on the other side of a glassless frame, with a duplicated section of room-scenery behind him.

* ''Film/{{Creed}}'' has a four minute real boxing match done entirely in one take, in order to make the fight feel more relentless and stress how it feels to be in the ring. Stereo audio is also implemented, where character voices come from the speaker or location that mimics their position relative to the sole camera. The audience's noise comes from all over, as well.

The camera tracks both boxers and the referee, getting within feet of the actual punches being thrown. When fighters bob and slip, they disappear from the frame completely. Stereo audio is also implemented, where character voices come from the speaker or location that mimics their position relative to the sole camera. A stationary character, such as Rocky staying within Creed's corner, sound as if they're coming from left or right, in front or behind, relative to where the camera is pointing. Depth also comes into play, with characters fading out the farther they are from the filming. The audience's noise comes from all over, as well.well, but are quieter when the camera gets close to the fighters, to show how locked in they are to the fight.
