Added DiffLines:

** The episode "Gary Blauman" contains a 2 and a half minute guest star studded panning one shot.


* Accordingly, Music/WeirdAlYankovic's parody "Tacky" is likewise a single take. It starts off with Al at the top of UsefulNotes/LosAngeles's Palace Theater in a hideous outfit, then the camera follows different celebrities (Series /WhoseLineIsItAnyway Aisha Tyler]], Creator/MargaretCho, [[Series/ModernFamily Eric Stonestreet]], Creator/KristenSchaal, Creator/JackBlack) as it makes its way down the building, and ends with Al on the ground floor in a different hideous outfit. The really impressive part is they did six takes of it, and every time Weird Al ran down five flights of stairs (while changing clothes!) to make it to the ground floor.

Added DiffLines:

* The camera in ''Film/TwoThirtySeven'' often follows a character through the school for extended periods of time, sometimes switching which character it follows mid-shot.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/TheDefenders2017'': There's a pretty impressive lengthy shot at the start of the team-up HallwayFight, which starts with Matt and Jessica arriving, and goes all the way through Matt sensing Elektra approaching.


* In the first ''Film/{{Superman}}'' film, Superman flies off Lois' balcony and seconds later within the same shot Clark appears at her door. The part of the shot where Lois watches Superman fly away is actually Margot Kidder looking at a rear projection. It's also not a single take, but two shots very cleverly edited together.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/AWayOut'' showcases this beautifully during the [[spoiler: escape from the hospital]] as the gameplay and camera seamlessly shifts between both protagonists while keeping the players on their toes.

Added DiffLines:

* The entirety of ''VideoGame/GodOfWarPS4'' is shown as one long continuous camera shot, aside from a few cuts to white during a short sequence in the middle of the game.

Added DiffLines:

* The 2015 film adaptation of ''Film/Macbeth'' has the "out, damned spot" soliloquy played out in two shots: first a quick establishing shot that shows Lady Macbeth sitting on the floor alone, then it cuts to a close-up of her face for almost 3 minutes (the longest take in the entire film) and only cuts once the soliloquy is over. [[TheReveal Then we see that]] [[spoiler: Lady Macbeth has been talking to a hallucination of her dead child]].

Added DiffLines:

* The 2018 Norwegian film ''Film/Utoya22Juli'' BasedOnATrueStory about the Breivik Massacre in Norway, 2011, has the ''entire'' film being shot like this. The idea being to show in real-time how the shooting played out for some of its victims and how long it lasted, TheOner lasting for 72 minutes, just as long as the RealLife shooting did.


* This is how the Ride/DisneyThemeParks UsefulNotes/ThreeDMovie ''Honey, I Shrunk the Audience'' is able to have the plot it does. The first half is a oner in which the camera doesn't move, and the scale of the performers and scenery is correctly scaled to appear as if they are actually people on a stage, as the setting is an awards ceremony. Close-ups of the performers and important action, the camerawork of a technician wearing a helmet-mounted camera, appear on a video monitor off to the side of the main screen. Once the audience is "shrunk", the film proceeds to another oner from a ''very'' different vantage point (and there is a sequence in which the camera moves -- because a toddler has just picked up the theater!).[[note]]It should however be noted that the power goes out somewhat frequently.[[/note]]

** He used it in his adaptation of ''Film/MuchAdoAboutNothing'' as well. Roughly the last eight minutes is one continuous shot.

Added DiffLines:

** The opening of season 2 episode “Better Call Saul” is a great example of a faked Oner: while it looks like a single, uninterrupted shot, the editors actually used people and cars passing through the foreground to hide the cuts between different takes.

Added DiffLines:

* The video for a cover of the Creator/BrunoMars hit "Uptown Funk" [[https://youtu.be/XgmNqXvUPBk in Gaelic]], performed by the students at a language school in UsefulNotes/{{Ireland}}, is one continuous take.

Added DiffLines:

* ''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.)
