Film: Bridget Jones (Beedan Kidron, 2004)
The first shot is a close up of a diary with soft non-diegetic music whilst the narrator talks over. Anchorage is provided because she writes 'brand new diary' as she also says it when narrating over.
We then move to an establishing shot, a slow fade is used to change scene to signify ellipsis.
Mise-en-scene signifies it is christmas through the clothes they are wearing and the snow outside.
The opening scene lasts for 3.4 minutes.
