Roger Deakins won the Academy Award for Cinematography for the breathtaking visuals of 1917. The film was designed to appear as if it had been done all in one take. Seems pretty simple, right? (No, that is, in fact, not simple.)

Not to worry. They didn’t do it in all one take. In a previous post, which you can find here, I featured a video on how they got some of these incredible shots.

However, that’s just the first step. They then had to edit it together in a way that seemed seamless, so as not to take away from the continuous shot appearance. This video reveals some of the hidden and creative ways they stitched the two shots together into a flawless whole.
