Easily the most visually dynamic film of 2016, La La Land is the “original musical about everyday life explores the joy and pain of pursuing your dreams.”
Cinematographer Linus Sandgren drew inspiration from the Old Hollywood aesthetic to create a fairytale masterpiece shot entirely on 35 millimeter film. According to Where To Watch article, Sandgren says, “Digital video captures reality whereas the film medium just naturally captures the image in a heightened, magical way that looks more like an impression of reality, or maybe how you remember it.”
See just how much magic was captured on film below.
