La La Land’s open­ing scene is a six-minute dance num­ber to the song An­other Day of Sun, play­ing out amid LA’s no­to­ri­ously bad traf­fic. It’s also where the film’s pro­tag­o­nists, strug­gling ac­tress Mia (Emma Stone) and jazz pi­anist Se­bas­tian (Ryan Gosling), first en­counter each other – al­beit in a road rage in­ci­dent. The scene is said to have been filmed over two hot days in a ramp at this in­ter­change be­tween the car­pool lanes of the 105 (Cen­tury) and 110 (Har­bor) free­ways in south LA. The down­town sky­line and sur­round­ing moun­tains can be seen in the dis­tance.
