La La Land, 2016: Wrong Shirt
Continuity errors are one of the biggest ways films can make mistakes. That’s due to the multiple scenes and takes that are stitched together during editing, causing a few errors if they don’t align. In La La Land, Sebastian is seen wearing a brown shirt during a road rage scene – only for it to turn blue moments later.
In the next scene, Sebastian spoke to his sister in a different shirt. Then in the next scene, where he is practicing the piano, he is back in the brown shirt. Director Damien Chazelle has recognized the error.
