Move over, Birdman. There’s a new one-shot-wonder in town and it’s called The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.

Just like the critically acclaimed film known for its long artful shots, the second season of the hit Amazon series kicked off with a single shot. So how the heck did director of photography M. David Mullen achieve that? Thanks to this Insider clip and its lesson on long takes, now we know.

So, what did we learn? A lot of planning went into the ordeal, they discussed the shot for three or four weeks before filming it, and a little bit of CGI was used.

Funny and cinematically complex? Sounds just like The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
