Hi, is there a tutorial for a fast forward effect (seen in Garden State and countless other movies) where one person seems to move normally and all the action around him is fast forwarded?

Thanks for your time

This has been asked countless times, try a search to find some more detailed posts, but basically you want your person and your background to be different shots. This means you must rotoscope your main actor or put a green screen behind them for their shot.
