Who needs editing anyway.
Here are a couple of bravado camera moves from the 1964 film Soy Cuba (I Am Cuba), directed by Mikhail Kalatozov.
Clip 1 - A single shot that lasts over 3 minutes sees the camera travel through a rooftop beauty contest, down the side of the building & end up in the swimming pool.
Paul Thomas Anderson paid homage to this shot in Boogie Nights.
Clip 2 - This time the camera moves up from a funeral procession in the street through the window of a 2nd floor cigar factory and then out over the top of the procession.
