At the beginning of the movie, after the crowd dancing scene, the camera quickly pans to the left to the girl in the yellow dress lying on top of the red car. After the pan, all the shadows of the people are pointing in the opposite direction, revealing that they shot the latter scene at a different time of day and the shots were combined to make it look like a single continuous shot (at 3 min 45 sec).

My Most Memorable Cinematic Experience Since Star Wars - when I was six
The last time, I felt like this, in a cinema, I was six years old and I was watching Star Wars. I never imagined, I would ever find that feeling again in a cinema. That sense of being transported to another world.
The opening sequence took my breath away and I never got it back. Not even at the end - which left my head spinning. It is a beautiful film with soul, wit, charm, style and love. It is simply outrageous! Bold and fantastic and fantastical.
I am a straight man but my love for Ryan Gosling could change all that. He's a melancholy genius and Emma Stone is our muse.
This film defies genre. It is a masterpiece. I urge you to see it. I was lucky enough to see it at the BFI London Film Festvial.
It has been five days since I saw La La Land and I am still thinking about it and singing the haunting refrain that plays with your soul. I mean it gets in there - that music - the music of the firmament. Flying still, dreaming still... thank you Damien.
