Daniel Haazen opted for a unique interpretation of Ludum Dare 28's You Only Get One theme. In his game, you are a cameraman who must successfully execute a single, long take of a scene. You only get one chance for each scene, and how well you do affects the film's sales.

The game is controlled by mouse, and all you have to do is move it to view different parts of the scene and use your mouse wheel to scroll in and out. The instructions to the side are grey until they activate, becoming black for a time before turning red if you performed badly or green if you did it right. The instructions themselves are humorous, as are the newspaper clippings after each of the three levels to tell you how well the movie fared based on your performance. The last scene is particularly funny.

The game is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux, though Linux users will need to have LOVE installed.
