12 minutes single shot by Daniel Sauve on TV show 19-2

Since Daniel is not posting very much here, I wanted to share a 12 minute long shot he did on one of the most successful tv series right now in Quebec called 19-2 .
It opens season 2 of that very nice and dark show photographed by Claudine Sauvé.
Warning : the shot is about a school shooting: director , Podz, wanted an ultra realistic shot and it shows.
It's in french but thanks to YouTube magic, pressing CC at the bottom of the screen will give you subtitles. Adjust resolution to highest (I think it's 480)
12 takes and they took the last one. One day rehearsing, one day to shoot it.
1.5 millions viewers for that episode (we are 8 million total in Quebec, that's a lot of viewers for a tv show)
Amazingly stressful , kudos to Daniel.

This particular shot from that TV show has a lot of similarities with a school shooting that happened right here in Montreal , Canada. The Dawson college shooting in 2006 was one where two police officers were visiting the school regarding another event while the shooting began. They were able to stop him in the first few minutes of his assault. The "ELEPHANT" reference was also mentioned here regarding the artistic choices the director made for this particular shot.
And yes, we all hope these kind of events don't repeat themselves anywhere.
