    YouTube - Fusedmarc - Contraction
    YouTube - Fusedmarc - Underplatoe
    YouTube - Fusedmarc - Easier

    Any video editing software will allow you to work with both video and audio and that covers Movie Maker (free) to Adobe Premiere to AVID and everything inbetween. It depends on how much money you want to spend, how much of a learning curve you want to 'endure' and your imagination. For sticking videos on the web, you can get very good editors for a small outlay.

    Yes, this is a cool camera technique that involves zooming in while rolling the camera backwards on a dolly. If this is done properly the subject (car) stays in place and the background becomes 'larger'. In this clip they zoom out and slide forwards on a dolly as well, so you can just as well achieve the opposite. I can't remember the name for this technique right now though... There's a wikipedia article covering this, but I can't seem to find it at the moment.

    Ah, found it

    It's called a Dolly Zoom

    Dolly zoom - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    Like the music in those first three vids, by the way

    I thought it was called a contra zoom?, it was used way back in the first JAWS movie where Roy Scheider is sitting on the beach chair and then all the trouble kicks off in the water.

    You can call it anything you want basically

    A dolly zoom is also variously known as:
    • Back Zoom Travelling
    • Vertigo zoom
    • The "Hitchcock zoom" or the "Vertigo effect"
    • "Hitchcock shot" or "Vertigo shot"[1][2]
    • A "Jaws shot"
    • A "zido"
    • A "zolly"
    • "Telescoping"
    • A "contra-zoom" or "trombone shot"
    • Push/pull
    • A Stretch shot
    • More technically as forward zoom / reverse tracking, track in / zoom out or zoom in / dolly out

    Spoiled for choice really, a 'Zido' has to be my favourite one of all... Do people get paid to sit around all day and come up with those names?
