Backstage: Single Take

Impact’s goal was to pull off this entire video in one continuous shot. The transitions appear to be done in post-production, but everything was done practically with the magic of art direction, and the amazing camera work of our powerhouse DP, Philip, who used the MoVi gimbal.  This silent LaCie video was created to loop in a showcase display.


  • We fabricated a gauntlet of four connected sets to allow for seamless movement between them during the single continuous take.
  • All sets were designed, lit and built in a studio over two days to accommodate the ambitious one-take goal.
  • The main actor had three wardrobe changes during the continuous shot.
  • We originally planned to rent an authentic space suit, but those suits are airtight and require a special technician and stunt person.
