Hi People,

can anybody help me with this question: The Music Video of the French Hip Hop Group IAM has a very unique style of zooming in throughout the whole clip.
Any idea how this was done?????

The zooms appear to be done in post-production and cover the cuts between scenes. There is also some masking/feathering where the "cuts" don't quite match up.

You could probably do something like it yourself by shooting the first part of a scene, moving the camera, then restarting the lip-sync a few seconds earlier when shooting the next 'scene.' Then you'd need to piece it all together in post.

That.....and lots and lots of planning.

You should take a look at Andrew Kramer's Earth Zoom tutorial

Its not exactly what you're looking for, but I believe the principles are there. The only difference is instead of using still images you're using clips. So like the other guy said, just plan it out.
