Just as it says... Seems a simple enough Hollywood camera trick...

Want to start far away high in the clouds, camera flying through to reveal the landscape to continue flying and tracking through to a figure upon a hilltop and then to their face in one continuous shot. It seems to me I would have to start far away deep in Z space and then move quite even deeper into the opposite of Z space to pull this off. I've seen this many times in animation, commercials, etc and wonder if there's a simple - cheating approach to pull off that effect then separating the first position of the camera to the last position so intensely far apart to pull off that look. THANKS!!

I'd look for AE tutorials -- and threads here on the COW, too -- that contain the phrase, "Cosmic Zoom". You'll find a bunch of helpful stuff.
