The takes are around ten minutes long, however with some masterful editing it seems like a feature film shot with one continuous take.

Lit with mostly practical and existing light sources according the the cinematograper (Emmanuel Lubezki )

“we had to time all of the lighting changes, making sure you don’t see shadows. We were moving lights; we were moving diffusions. There were grips moving with me. Every time you see a shot, there were eight people moving with me. It was like a ballet — that’s what made it truly exciting.”

This clip was made circa 1993, the video quality is horrible but the message still clear and very relevant.

The only thing standing in the way of you making a film is yourself.
