If you don’t know what it is, you’ve most likely have already seen it in movies.
The background compresses as if someone is changing focal length without altering the image composition. Pure movie magic trickery. The vertigo effect.

There is so much to talk about this effect and the impact it can have in a scene but for this video we are just going to focus on what you need to do while shooting and in post.
So lets skip the philosophy behind it and lets jump into the technicals.
What you want is a moving shot. Either moving in to your subject or away.
If you have a zoom lens you want to do the opposite of what your motion is.
If you are moving in physically you need to zoom out with your lens and vice versa.
If you don’t have a Ronin M which is what I’m using here, an ok alternative to a dolly, gimbal, stabilizer, is by using your tripod, shortening one leg and use the two front legs as pivot points.

Don’t have a zoom lens or if you do you suck at coordination like myself and don’t want to blow a take? I have the perfect solution for you!
Lets jump into After Effects and lets take a look at what to do. By the way, I’m using After Effects just because this video will be used for the vhs look tutorial series so since I will be adding some effects down the road to this video I decided to do this in AE.
This doesn’t mean you have to. You can use Premiere just as well and heck even Final Cut Pro X (you that software that cavemen that don’t know how to edit use)
