    La La Land Review

    La La Land Review

    The first 6 minutes of La La Land’s song and dance sequence is set in a morning rush hour traffic jam where the camera moves apparently non stop without any perceivable edits, capturing the cast as they dance, sing and do acrobatics with bikes and skateboards amongst the cars in a traffic jam on the slip road of the LA freeway. In actual fact, there are two edits within the sequence, which eagle eyed editor’s will notice happen during two whip pans that momentarily blur the image to fool the eye into thinking it’s a continuous sequence – great smoke and mirrors stuff! The whole 6 minutes took two days to film, which in movie making terms is pretty good going.
