Victoria One Take Movie

It’s not an easy feat, but it’s entirely possible to shoot entire movies in one single continuous take. That’s the case with a new European movie called Victoria, a thriller that tells the story of an action-packed wild night.

As Gawker explains, Victoria follows the adventures of a Spanish woman visiting Berlin. One night she meets a group of men in Berlin and hits it off with one of them. What follows is a rollercoaster ride for the protagonist, who’s soon involved in various crimes, including drugs, car thefts, kidnapping and a bank heist.

Victoria was filmed on April 17th, 2014, between 4:30 a.m. and 7:00 a.m. and has an appropriate tagline: “One City. One Night. One Take.”

However, the final version of the movie isn’t the first take of it. German director Sebastian Schipper said he and his team prepared for three months for the film, recording three such one-takes – and the third was the chosen one.

“I think one of the least important things you need for making a film whether you’re an actor or director is your brain,” Schipper told Gawker. “One of the most important things is your intuition and to get into the flow and really understand. That’s what makes a film radiate. Your brain can get in the way so that you’re controlling everything and eliminate mistakes so that all of a sudden your job as a director is to always make everything clean.”

“At the same time, [shooting in a one-take format] was a great, amazing gift: losing a lot and winning way more,” he added. “It was still a very close call. I know the actors loved all three takes we did, but in my world only the last one is a film. The other two are experiments. If the first or second one-shots would have been the film, we would not be sitting here.”

A trailer follows below while the full interview with Schipper and Laia Costa (who plays Victoria) is available at the source link.

Chris Smith started writing about gadgets as a hobby, and before he knew it he was sharing his views on tech stuff with readers around the world. Whenever he's not writing about gadgets he miserably fails to stay away from them, although he desperately tries. But that's not necessarily a bad thing.
