* In Joe Wright's ''Film/PrideAndPrejudice'', right after Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy dance at the ball, a montage of the ball starts. It's easy to miss that this is really one long shot. After a bit of dialogue, Keira Knightley had to sprint through the house to pass a doorway before the camera got to it, and then steady her breathing for when the camera got to her in her next position.

** "[[{{Recap/Daredevil2015S3E4Blindsided}} Blindsided]]" has an '''11 minute''' long continuous shot. This sees Matt fight his way through several several corridors past dozens of inmates and guards sent by Fisk to kill him, getting information out of the Albanian mob boss in the prison, and then convincing the boss to get the guards in his pocket to then help smuggle Matt out of the prison. And it's all shot in a real single take (as confirmed by Charlie Cox in an interview). Production had to be stopped for a full day to allow the cast and crew to rehearse it. The directors actually designed the shot to allow some digital stitching if necessary, then went back and lightened the moments in question to make it clear to the audience that this hadn't happened, and with Charlie Cox's face in shot for the overwhelming majority of it (stunt doubles are swapped in twice, to allow Matt to get thrown across the room). Plus, it features firebombs and blood spray, increasing the technical difficulty.

* ''Series/TheMarvelousMrsMaisel'' is known for featuring continuous tracking shots.
**The second season opens with one of these to show Midge in her new job in the basement switchboard at B. Altman. It's not entirely a single oner, but rather, two separate shots stitched together with CGI (this being where we see the camera follow a letter sent down the mail chute to the basement).
**"We're Going to the Catskills" features a lengthy oner during the initial Steiner dance challenge. This one sees Midge race around the dance floor looking for dance partners with initials matching her own, during which she sets up one couple and has a chat with one of the Steiner employees. It even continues after the initial dance ends into the next dance, as Midge slowly waltzes with Joel.


* ''Film/Furious7'' opens with a long take of Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) giving a monologue to his brother in a hospital, then casually walking out of said hospital, revealing that it had been almost completely destroyed in a firefight between him and a SWAT team.

* The scene in ''Film/{{Goodfellas}}'' where Henry Hill takes his girlfriend to the nightclub, past the line at the door, in through the kitchen and out into the club is a well known example.
** After three takes, [[Creator/MartinScorsese Scorsese's]] assistant director asked if they could take a break because the extras were getting tired. Scorsese had not realized that, to save money, the extras outside the club were also the extras for the interior, and had to run in and get in place while the camera was in the kitchen.
** The reason the shot is so long is that while Scorsese was allowed to film at the real Copacabana club, he couldn't use the main entrance.
*** This is what prompted Scorcese to do the tracking shot, but once he'd started filming it he decided to artificially extend the shot to exaggerate the effect: Henry and Karen's route through the kitchens is actually a complete loop, and they leave through the door they came in.
** The main stumbling block on the shot was Henny Youngman, playing himself as the entertainer at the end of the shot; he kept flubbing his lines after the rest of the shot was completed successfully.
* Rare in Film/JamesBond movies, but in ''Film/YouOnlyLiveTwice'', there's a [[https://youtu.be/-c7hzHwETyk extended helicopter tracking shot]] as Bond runs across a roof, beating up dock workers working for the villain.

After a bit of dialogue, Keira Knightley had to sprint through the house to pass a doorway before the camera got to it, and then steady her breathing for when the camera got to her in her next position.

Branagh's long tracking shot of Judi Dench (Mistress Quickly) directly references Olivier's version: while otherwise taking a completely different approach to the play, Branagh set up and shot that scene identically to Olivier.

** In the episode "Objects in Space," the second-to-last shot of the episode was one long shot over about a minute, showing each member of the crew. It was intended to show that River had been accepted onto the ship as one of the crew, as opposed to a passenger, by having her appear with everyone else on the ship. The scene ends with Summer Glau and Jewel Staite in the cargo bay of the ship. Because everything had to go right in one take, if anyone made a mistake, they'd have to start the whole scene over again. When Summer kept screwing up, forcing a reshoot because the ''very last part'' of the long scene (it's about 5-7 minutes long) was screwed up, it necessarily ended up frustrating the other cast members, who, from the other side of the set, would cry out "SUUUUMMER!" whenever she messed up. This became a behind-the-scenes running gag: whenever someone would screw up, they'd shout "SUUUUMMER!"

** In [[Recap/GameOfThronesS5E8Hardhome Hardhome]], we get one with Jon Snow moving from the wight-covered gate to the Wildlings' meeting hut in order to retrieve the dragonglass daggers he brought with him in order to emphasize how much of a massacre it is.

** The second episode ends with a five minute long fight scene in a hallway where Matt, already heavily injured, takes on a dozen men. It's not a true oner (a little digital trickery disguises the cuts) but it plays and looks exactly like one.
** The fifth episode contains a long cut in a dark alleyway, with various actions and the tail-end of a fight scene taken in by a wide-angle camera inside a car.
** The third episode of the 2nd season has a lengthy fight scene between Daredevil and a bunch of bikers, first in a hallway and then down a flight of stairs. Though there are several cuts, it's given the appearance of one take.
** The ninth episode of the 2nd season has a "single-take fight" between the Punisher and dozens of prison inmates. It's significantly bloodier, since Frank Castle is a CombatPragmatist with no code against killing. And admittedly, there are several obvious cuts, but that doesn't make it any less awesome.
** The fourth episode of season 3 has an '''11 minute''' long continuous shot. This sees Matt fight his way through several several corridors past dozens of inmates and guards sent by Fisk to kill him, getting information out of the Albanian mob boss in the prison, and then convincing the boss to get the guards in his pocket to then help smuggle Matt out of the prison. And it's all shot in a real single take (as confirmed by Charlie Cox in an interview). Production had to be stopped for a full day to allow the cast and crew to rehearse it. The directors actually designed the shot to allow some digital stitching if necessary, then went back and lightened the moments in question to make it clear to the audience that this hadn't happened, and with Charlie Cox's face in shot for the overwhelming majority of it (stunt doubles are swapped in twice, to allow Matt to get thrown across the room). Plus, it features firebombs and blood spray, increasing the technical difficulty.

* Music/{{Radiohead}}'s [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qqsyXdj_p_I "No Surprises"]] from ''Music/OKComputer'' video is notable, in that the continuous 57 seconds in which Thom Yorke is submerged was done by speeding up the track Thom is miming to as his face becomes totally submerged, then editing the footage to slow it down for the full minute. The making of this video is featured in the band's documentary ''Meeting People is Easy'', which shows Thom's frustrations with being unable to do the shot correctly for several takes.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=waAqJ6727Hk [[https://youtu.be/waAqJ6727Hk Cypress Ranch High School's Anti-Bullying music video]] is all one long (and impressive, considering the scale) shot, a fact which was overtly parodied by ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' in "Butterballs." An interesting note is that even when one girl [[FadeToBlack blacks out the camera with her hand]], it continues to be a single shot.

* ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' used these on occasion, usually for epic fight scenes. One of the best examples was in "The Unknown", where we follow a terrified Clone Trooper medic aboard a Republic shuttle as [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ndksHspW9CA&feature=youtu.be&t=1m5s the Super Battle droids kill everyone aboard and kidnap Tup.]] (The shot starts at 2:38 and runs for the rest of the video.)

* Rare in Film/JamesBond movies, but in ''Film/YouOnlyLiveTwice'', there's a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-c7hzHwETyk extended helicopter tracking shot]] as Bond runs across a roof, beating up dock workers working for the villain. [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome It is also awesome.]]

* ''Film/TheLongestDay'' has an immensely long shot in which a helicopter follows the French commandos storming a few blocks in a long stretch that was masterfully orchestrated. It is said to be the film's CrowningMomentOfAwesome, and this is a three-hour film full of awesome moments.

* The 2000 film ''Timecode'' consists of four continuous 90-minute shots, each filmed in a single simultaneous take. Each shot follows different parts of the action, and is displayed in a quadrant of a split screen. Actors move from camera to another, but the cameras never capture each other by accident. The story -- multiple plot threads about characters in a Los Angeles film production company -- is kind of interesting, but the execution is a CrowningMomentOfAwesome.

* The film version of ''Film/{{Doom}}'' has one as its CrowningMomentOfAwesome, a single continuous sequence seen from the first person, that due to filming requirements had to be done in this manner, with the actors for the monsters stacking up into a long line behind the camera, and staying outside of the shot the entire time. It took three weeks to make!

*** The climactic battle, following each member of the team as they [[CrowningMomentofAwesome whoop the Chitauri's collective ass to hell and back.]] We start with ComicBook/BlackWidow riding a hijacked Chitauri craft... to ComicBook/IronMan covering her back by blasting chasing craft... to Iron Man landing next to ComicBook/CaptainAmerica and reflecting his beam off of Cap's shield to clear out enemies... to ComicBook/{{Hawkeye}} picking off Chitauri from nearby to afar... to [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor Thor]] and [[ComicBook/IncredibleHulk the Hulk]] fighting on top of a Leviathan and ultimately using a concerted effort to bring the monster down.

* ''Film/JurassicWorld'': In the climatic battle, the moment [[spoiler:Blue enters the fight till the I. Rex is defeated is one shot. You see Blue attacking the Indominus, then Rexy rejoining the fight, the protaganists trying to flee the scene and again the fight]]. It increases the [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome awesomeness]] of the climax.

** That scene was a CrowningMomentOfAwesome for Anderson, as it was the one shot in the episode where the camera was focused ''entirely'' on one character from start to finish. The camera tracked her for 10 minutes, 20 seconds as she engaged in separate but continuous conversations with The Lone Gunmen at her desk, Skinner in his office, Kirsh in his office, Spender in the X-Files office, and again with Skinner in the elevator (who managed to get to first base with Scully before Mulder) before escaping in The Lone Gunmen's van. Brilliant.

* For the final episode of its 31st season, and to commemmorate the series' 30th anniversary, British hospital drama ''Series/{{Casualty}}'' made British television history by recording a Oner... that was ''[[CrowningMomentOfAwesome 48 minutes long]]''. Even more impressive was the fact that they managed to switch cameramen halfway through (after about 20 minutes, the camera would just be too heavy) and that they managed to nail it in under ten takes.

* Music/{{Robyn}}'s [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F6ImxY6hnfA "Call Your Girlfriend"]] uses it very effectively, with some intense (and seemingly improvised) dance moves and an equally intense light show going on around the Swedish pop star. It's really [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome not to be missed]].
