The X-Files “Triangle” experiment

Whoa… Earlier I turned on the TV and there was an X-Files episode at the time on HD. I haven’t seen that episode before, so I left it running in the background. Sudenly, I caught something in the screen that felt weird. Out of the ordinary. I kept watching. Apparently, the scene is endless! Scully is running from one room to the other in the FBI building, from one floor to the other, from elevator to elevator — for 10 minutes straight! The camera-man is following her; there are no cut-scenes, just one continuous footage. This is not how TV series are shot at all. I did a bit of research and apparently the director is Chris Carter himself. Obviously, he was having fun…

You should check out Russian Ark if you haven’t yet, an amazing & beautiful feature-length movie taken in one long continuous shot. There’s something enthralling about continuous scenes, directors should rely less on cut-scenes.

It was another attempt by Chris Carter to win an Emmy. He didn’t.
