FILM: Nocturne - Opening Shot Optical Zoom

This striking opening shot carries the viewer from the super-diegetic credits into the narrative. The transition from optical zoom to crane shot is not seamless (look for the shift around 0:27), helpfully delineating physical & optical components.

from Nocturne (1946)
Creator: Edwin L. Marin
